Interesting Trivia About Tracking Santa

NORAD’s Santa tracking began in 1955 with an incorrect phone number - Aurora Sentinel: Hp Metro:
NORAD Tracks Santa has truly become a global experience, delighting generations of families everywhere. It is due, in large part, to the efforts and services of numerous contributors.
It all started in 1955 when a local media advertisement directed kids to call Santa direct - only the number was misprinted.
Instead of reaching Santa, the phone rang through to the crew commander on duty at the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center.
Thus began the tradition which NORAD has carried on since it was created in 1958.
