NORAD Continues to Track Santa 12/24/12
If you're wanting to track Santa as he makes his way around the world, delivering presents, NORAD can help.
The North American Aerospsace Command is posting real-time updates as to where Ol' Saint Nick is as well as where he's heading and how many presents he has delivered so far.
Following is a sampling of calls received at the base:
GIFTS IN HEAVEN: One little boy from Missouri phoned in to ask what time Santa delivered toys to heaven, said volunteer Jennifer Eckels, who took the
call. The boy's mother got on the line to explain that his sister had died this year.
"I think Santa headed there first," Eckels told him.
IS HE THERE YET?: James Solano took a call from a young girl and her father in Bangkok, asking when Santa would arrive. Solano checked the map and said it
wouldn't be long.
"The dad was saying, `We've got to get to bed soon,"' said Solano, an Army colonel.
"It was kind of neat," he said. "They were very thrilled."
SANTA KNOWS: Glenn Barr took a call from a 10-year-old who wasn't sure if he would be sleeping at his mom's house or his dad's and was worried about whether
Santa would find him.
"I told him Santa would know where he was and not to worry," Barr said.
Another child asked if he was on the nice list or the naughty list.
"That's a closely guarded secret, and only Santa knows," Barr replied.
THE REAL DEAL: A young boy called to ask if Santa was real.
Air Force Maj. Jamie Humphries, who took the call, said, "I'm 37 years old, and I believe in Santa, and if you believe in him as well, then he must be real."
The boy turned from the phone and yelled to others in the room, "I told you guys he was real!"
