  • NBC News detailed the history of NORAD tracking Santa, reporting it began in 1955 when a young girl called a number incorrectly listed in an advertisement, giving the number for a secure line inside the NORAD facility.
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci reported to the nation’s children that coronavirus will not slow Santa now that he has his vaccine, and that the elves and reindeer are naturally immune.
  • Despite getting his vaccine, Santa will still be wearing a mask according to People magazine.



  • Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that while the coronavirus pandemic has scaled back operations at NORAD, that will not affect Santa-tracking capabilities, as many trackers are working remotely.
  • Santa made his presence known early in England when a cloud that closely resembles Nicholas appeared over the town of Devon on Christmas Eve.
  • According to Fox News, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer plays an important part in tracking and keeping Santa safe: his nose “emits an infrared signature similar to a missile launch” that helps NORAD track the team.
