Children are keen to track Santa Claus because he has several good options to choose from when he travels the world on Christmas Eve.
For example, Google’s tracker uses the company’s map expertise to ensure that it provides up-to-date and accurate information about Santa’s whereabouts during the day and night.
According to Google, Santa just passed the Russian Far East at 10pm local time, the first stop at 5am in New York and 11am in Paris. This means that he will feel stressed when he arrives in the United States, so he must not eat milk and biscuits before going to bed.
For some extra fun, Google’s tracker includes a gift counter so you can see how many gifts Santa has given over time. It also provides links to local guides so you can find more information about places on his route.
There is an ingenious story about how NORAD became a service to discover the whereabouts of Santa Claus. It all started on Christmas Eve 66 years ago because of a printing error in a newspaper in Colorado Springs.
NORAD on its websiteexplain: “In 1955, a child trying to contact Santa Claus dialed a phone number that was incorrectly printed in a department store advertisement in a local newspaper.” “The child did not call Santa Claus, but to the Continental Air Defense Commander in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Department (CONAD) operations center call.”
The story continues: “The duty commander, Colonel Harry Schup, who answered the child’s call that night, quickly realized that he had made a mistake and assured the child that he was Santa Claus. After receiving more calls, Shoup assigned him A man on duty continued to answer the phone, and a tradition emerged from this, which was continued when the North American Air Defense Command was established in 1958.”
Thanks to the support, services and resources provided by volunteers, government and corporate donors, NORAD’s Santa Tracker has been able to continue to be used since then, The arrival of the InternetAdded telephone service.
Every Christmas Eve, the NORAD website receives millions of unique visitors from more than 200 countries/regions around the world, and volunteers usually answer about 130,000 calls from children around the world to the NORAD Tracks Santa hotline, asking about Santa’s current location and May arrive in their community at the time of arrival.
Santa Claus himself certainly likes to talk, but it is understandable that he is too busy to answer the phone.
