Also on Christmas Eve, children can get Santa updates by sending an email to noradtrackssanta@outlook.com and OnStar subscribers can press the OnStar button in their vehicles to locate Santa.

NORAD's predecessor started tracking Santa in the mid-1950s after an ad telling kids to call Santa misprinted the phone number and gave out the number for the on-duty crew commander at the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center.

The tradition has carried on for more than 60 years.
