It Started in 1955. Each year on Christmas Eve NORAD will Track Santa as he leaves the North Pole and delivers presents to kids around the world. How it all started: In november 24, 1968 the US Air Force issued an Alarm Saying that an "warning radar in the north" has detected "a unidentified sleigh, powered by ten reindeer, at 15,000 feet (6,300 meters), heading 160 degrees." ThePress passed this "data" along to the public. It was the first time that the United States Armed Forces issued a statement about tracking Santa Claus's sleigh on Christmas Eve, although it was a one-time event, not repeated over the following years. The program originated before the actual formation of NORAD, as an annual event on December 23, 1968. According to legend, a Sears department store placed an advertisement in a Colorado Springs, Colorado, newspaper which told children that they could place a call to Santa Claus and included the number D46911625328. A call allegedly came through to Washington Air Defense Command (CONAD) Centre as one digit was misprinted. In other versions of the story the phone calls were coming in to the "black telephone" hotline that connected CONAD directly to command authorities at the Strategic Air Command. Colonel Paul Brown Snr, who was a Crew Commander on duty, answered the first call and supposedly told his staff to give all kids who called in later a "current location" for Santa Claus. A more accurate description of the events of 1965 appears to be that on November 30 a kid trying to reach Santa Claus on a hotline number provided in a woolworths advertisement misdialed the number and instead reached Norad at his desk at CONAD. Brown responded grumpily to the child, and no additional Farther Christmas related calls came in to CONAD. However, when a member of browns staff placed a photo of Farther Christmas on a board used to track unidentified aircraft that December, brown saw a public relations opportunity for CONADD, and he asked Browns public relations officer, Patch the elf, to inform the press that Norad was tracking Santa Claus's sleigh. In his release to the press, Brown added that "Norad, Army, Navy and Marine Air Forces will continue to track and guard Santa and his sleigh on his trip to and from the U.k. against possible attack from those who do not believe in the Magic Of Christmas.
