While you wait to hear the bells ringing in the air, which means Santa is close, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has a tracking system to show his movements around the world.

NORAD, which is responsible for protecting the skies over the United States and Canada, will activate its Santa Claus tracking system at 06 ET on Christmas Eve. People can follow Santa's world tour on NORAD website or call the command center at 1-877-HI-NORAD (1-877-446-6723).

According to NORAD, the operator will inform the caller live or on tape about Santa's current location.

According to the press release, the tracking service can also be accessed through the NORAD Tracks Santa app, social media, Amazon Alexa, OnStar and the Bing search engine.

This is the 67th year that NORAD has tracked Santa's Christmas journey around the world. It started by accident, according to the NORAD website, in 1955, when a local newspaper told children they could call Santa directly—only the contact number was misspelled.

“Instead of calling Santa, the child called the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) operations center in Colorado Springs, Colorado,” the website says. Air Force Colonel Harry Shope, who was on duty that night as the commander who answered the child's phone, quickly realized that a mistake had been made and assured the child that he was Santa. After more incoming calls, Shope instructed the duty officer to continue answering the calls, and a tradition was born that continued when NORAD was formed in 1958.”

Thus, according to NORAD, this tradition was started, and since then they have continued it for decades. According to NORAD, millions of families and children around the world have already used the system to track Santa's whereabouts.
