NOARAD Santa – A Flash Back


How did it all started? It all began when a toy shop published an advertisement in a newspaper asking kids to call santa claus on Christmas eve. They accidentally gave the wrong contact number in the advertisement and instead gave a phone number at the CONAD (NORAD’s name back then). Many children made calls to NORAD’s office asking to connect with NORAD Santa. The officer in charge colonel Harry Shoup (now known as the santa colonel) understood the situation and decided not to leave the kids calling disappointed. He instructed all the staff in the office to attend every phone calls that came enquiring the location of santa claus. In the later years, when NORAD was formed, they decided to carry on with the practice of tracking santa claus. Ever since they are hosting an annual event during the Christmas eve called ‘NORAD tracks Santa’.
