NORAD's Santa Tracker Promises to Continue Running Despite US Government Shutdown

The North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) is tracking Santa's flight and whereabouts as he makes his annual journey around the world delivering gifts to the world's children.

NORAD has been tracking Santa's Christmas Eve journey for the past 63 years.

NORAD is normally responsible for monitoring any aerospace or marine threat - but every Christmas season, it focuses on one figure who is anything but a threat: Santa Claus. Each year Koch and her army of volunteer elves answer nearly 25,000 letters to Santa. The tradition dates back to the 50s when children were able to phone the centre to check on Santa's progress.
