Watch 'Santa Tracker'

The Greeneville Sun’s website now features information from North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) on Santa Claus’ journey around the world on Christmas Eve.

Available locally at GreenevilleSun.com/SantaTracker, NORAD provides a countdown clock to the beginning on St. Nick’s 2013 journey, plus information on the agency’s holiday tracking system.

“For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa's flight,” according to NORAD’s website.

“The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement misprinted the telephone number for children to call Santa.

“Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief's operations ‘hotline.'

“The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south from the North Pole.

“Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born.

“Since that time, NORAD men, women, family and friends have selflessly volunteered their time to personally respond to phone calls and emails from children all around the world.

“In addition, we now track Santa using the internet.”

Gen. Charles H. Jacoby, Jr., NORAD commander, said, “Each and every day throughout the year, all of us here at NORAD work diligently to defend and protect our nations. It is an honor for us to take one day each year to expand our missions to share goodwill and holiday spirit across the globe through the NORAD Tracks Santa program.”
