Normally, NORAD is watching out for airborne threats to the national security of the United States and Canada. But on Christmas Eve, its mission is expanded to tracking Santa Claus. And I’m sure it still keeps an eye out for rogue missiles and what not.
And yes, Virginia, NORAD has a Santa-tracking Web site. The site also has a handy/frightening clock clicking down the seconds until December 24, just so you know exactly how little time you really have to shop.
And no, your corner convenience store does not have exactly what your wife wants. You don’t need NORAD to tell you that.
