The bi-national U.S.-Canadian military organization responsible for the aerospace and maritime defense of the United States and Canada called NORAD tracks the Santa Clause, Rudolph and all the other reindeers on their way around the world. For this purpose NORAD uses four high-tech systems: radar, satellites, Santa Cams and fighter jets.

The military organization strated tracking Santa Clause more than 50 years ago because of a misprinted the telephone number on a Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement flyer that asked children to call Santa. Instead of reaching Father Christmas the phone number put the kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline”.

You can follow Santas route on Google Earth or watch videos of the most recent location of Father Christmas.

Santa ClauseSanta Clause is a legendary figure who brings gifts on the christmas who brings gifts to the homes of children all over the world on Christmas Eve, December 24th.

Historians claim that the history of Santa starts with the tradition of Saint Nicholas. Saint Nicholas was a Christian priest in the 4th century and was famous for his kidness. The legend says that the he was giving gifts to the less fortunate, sprinkling gifts of gold down people’s chimneys or hiding surprises in their stockings.

So there is a possibilty that Santa Clause and Saint Nicholas is the same person.  Clearly Santa’s basic approach to give presents to other people is strikingly similar.
