We are days away until Santa Claus comes to town, and the North American Aerospace Defense Command or (NORAD) is tracking his whereabouts.  The L.A. Times reports NORAD’s regular mission is to oversee potential air threats that come against the United States and Canada.  However, since 1955 they have allowed one playful mission one night a year on Christmas Eve.
