Santa Claus started his journey across the world to deliver gifts

It's almost Christmas and Santa Claus has started his journey across the world to deliver gifts to to the good boys and girls on his list, at least according to a U.S. military command. In what is an annual tradition, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), a U.S.-Canadian operation based in Colorado Springs, is tracking the jolly red-robed globe trotter as he zips around the world in his sled with his trusty reindeer crew.

The origins of tracking Santa date back to 1955 when a local ad to speak directly with Santa printed the wrong phone number -- instead directing children to a military defense operations center. Tracking Santa grew from there after officers on duty actually fielded the kids questions. These days parents and children can visit NORAD's website and pinpoint his whereabouts with the help of the popular Santa Tracker program.
