The North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) tweeted Friday that it "will continue with its 63-year tradition of NORAD Tracks Santa on December 24" even in the event of a shutdown, which is great for the world's population of internet-savvy children but also the rest of us, given the necessity of NORAD's function.

'Well, you just enjoy yourself, ' US President Donald Trump told a seven-year-old boy during one of his Santa Tracker phone calls.

The military, which runs NORAD Tracks Santa from the Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado, said it will continue to take calls as he makes his way around the world on Monday night. "Have a great Christmas, and I'll talk to you again, OK?" Trump asked the child, before questioning him further.
