U.S. first lady Michelle Obama continues the tradition of responding to the calls made by children from across the country, who are very excited and curious to know where Santa Claus is on Christmas Eve.
Just like last year, this year too Obama took calls from the NORAD Tracks Santa program which is run by the North American Aerospace Defense Command, an administration official said.
I've spotted a little dot, flashing dot that is over -- right now, Santa's sleigh is over the country of Latvia. And he's delivering toys there, CNN reported quoting Obama. It looks like he's got all nine reindeer with him. And it looks like that sleigh is pretty full -- yep, that's what the experts here are saying.
Using the Google map, Obama tracks Santa’s toy delivery route, which is created by the North American Aerospace Command, known as NORAD.
A small Santa image with nine reindeers is used to locate his current position while a countdown clock below the map shows where Santa will take his sleigh next.
Hello, this is First Lady Michelle Obama with NORAD Tracks Santa. How may I help you? said Obama and gave kids the exact location of Santa using NORAD's global Santa Tracker.
“It is wonderful to be part of this holiday tradition. I love answering calls from children who were anxious to learn where Santa was and when he would arrive at their home. I passed on to each child the current location of Santa and reminded them that he would come to their house only after they were in bed sleeping, said the first lady in a NORAD statement.
More than 1,200 volunteers answer thousands of calls and emails from children who are tracking Santa’s whereabouts on Christmas Eve.
