HOW A LITTLE TYPO MADE FOR A AMAZING CHRISTMAS TRADITION!

How The NORAD Santa Tracker Got Its Start Okay guys and girls first for those who really know me they know that I am a compulsive obsessive person when it comes to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  I am also in love with a good story as much as the next person. So last year when I stumbled upon this story about how NORAD started tracking Santa I had a good chuckle.  Then to my surprise I was looking at pins on Pinterest tonight and behold the story of the Santa Tracker reappeared in my thread so I figured it was fate I had to share the story with the world.   The whole NORAD tracking Santa started because of a typo in the paper. Here is a picture of the ad that Sears Roebuck and Co. posted over 60 years ago.  They didn't realize it but that phone number was not to the Santa they had in place but to the Continental Air Defense Center (Now NORAD).
