Santa is Coming! Santa is Coming! The North American Aerospace Defense Command will start tracking Santa starting December 1st. This will be the 67th year of tracking Santa as it started in 1955 when a little girl called the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center in Colorado Springs asking to speak to Santa after seeing a newspaper ad. But NOW it's much simpler- you can watch Santa fly around the world at NORADSanta.org! Or you can follow him on Facebook or Twitter @NORADSanta or on Instagram at @NORADTrackSanta_Official.
