The NORAD Tracks Santa website, noradsanta.org, features Santa's North Pole Village, which includes a holiday countdown, games, activities and more.

It all started in 1955 when a local media advertisement directed children to call Santa direct - only the number was misprinted. Bing and Cortana users can also find Santa's location.

Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief's operations "hotline".

NORAD uses its satellite systems, high-powered radar, and jet fighters to track Santa each year. Thus began the tradition, which NORAD carried on since it was created in 1958. The joint US-Canadian command is based at Petersen Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo.
