And they've been doing so for decades. Kids around the world can get up-to-the-second updates as to exactly where Santa is on his Christmas Eve delivery, and when they can expect him to pass by their homes. It's a major operation for NORAD, requiring the help of 1250 volunteers, or elves, to keep the updates coming. This can be advantageous for those parents playing the Santa card as they can point to an official authority to back them up about whether Santa is in fact coming. Well, that is, if the kids are being good. So take a peek with your kids and see where in his travels Santa happens to be. Merry Christmas!
