(WJW)– Santa Claus is coming to town.
For decades, North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, has helped children of all ages track Santa on his one-night journey delivering toys around the globe.
The website NORADSanta.org went live on Dec. 24. You can also get updates by calling 1-877-Hi-NORAD, asking Amazon Alexa or pushing the OnStar button in vehicles.
The military command has been fielding calls since 1955, when Air Force Col. Harry Shoup — the commander on duty at NORAD’s predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command — fielded a call from a child who dialed a misprinted telephone number in a newspaper department store ad, thinking she was calling Santa.
