Which organization tracks Santa’s flight on Christmas Eve?
Answer: North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is a combined organization of the United States and Canada that provides aerospace warning, air sovereignty, and defense for Northern America. Every year on Christmas Eve, volunteer staff is available at NORAD to take calls about Santa’s whereabouts. A live webcast of Santa’s preparations begins at 2:01 a.m. EST on Christmas Eve, and then NORAD’s “Santa Cams” will stream videos as Santa flies around the world. The tradition started in 1955 as the result of a wrongly listed phone number.
