Where is Santa?

In 1955 Sears Roebuck & Co. put an advertisement out for children to call Santa and unfortunately they misprinted the telephone number. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations "hotline." The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south from the North Pole. Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born.

Below is the current location of Santa on his epic Christmas Eve journey around the world.
