NORAD, or the North American Aerospace Defense Command, has been tracking Santa since 1955.
According to the NORAD website, it all began when a company in Colorado meant to print a number to connect children to Santa, but instead printed the number to CONAD, the predecessor to NORAD. The number printed went directly to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief's operations "hotline." The Director at the time decided to have his staff answer the calls and check the radar for Santa, and a tradition was born.
NORAD now has a website with a interactive map to track the jolly old elf.
