By Guy Chapman – Navarro County Gazette

In following Navarro County Gazette’s annual coverage, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is getting ready for a special job this Saturday, Dec. 24, as it continues its annual tradition of tracking Santa Claus as he begins his annual toy run for Christmas Eve.

NORAD has been assisting Santa since 1955 after a child had mistakenly called in to the Department of Defense. Wanting to assure kids that Mr. Claus is indeed coming to town, the organization has continued and maintained its duty to track and report Santa’s Christmas Eve whereabouts to millions of children and families across the world.

The NORAD Tracks Santa call center opens at 4 a.m. (MST) on Saturday, Dec. 24.

Children can call 1-877-HI-NORAD (446-6723) to find out Santa’s current location. They can also visit the NORAD Tracks Santa website to get live updates and play holiday games.
