For more than 65 years, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has taken on the mission of tracking Santa Claus as he travels across the globe delivering presents to children everywhere.

How does NORAD know exactly when and where Santa will be? Well, that’s a secret they guard closely.
