Children all over are sending him wish lists and planning to leave cookies and milk for his arrival next week.
But before Santa comes to town, they can track his progress as he delivers gifts around the world on Christmas Eve.
The tradition started in 1955 after an advertisement for Sears Roebuck & Co. misprinted a telephone number for a special "Santa hotline." Instead of reaching Kris Kringle, the number put kids through to the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) commander-in-chief’s operations, according to a description on the NORAD Tracks Santa Facebook page.
