Santa Claus is Angel-Like in a Way

Santa Claus is already airborne and U.S. air defense forces are keeping tabs on him as they have every Christmas Eve for more than 50 years.

The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs department store printed the wrong phone number in an ad telling kids how to reach Santa.

Instead of dialing St. Nick, callers were put through to the Colorado-based Continental Air Defense Command operations "hotline."

Rather than slam down the phone, the director of operations at the time, Col. Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for Santa's movements and provide callers with updates on his location. NORAD says.

The tradition, using volunteers, continued when the U.S. and Canada formed the joint North America Aerospace Defense Command in 1958.

Everyone can track Santa's flight, one just needs to send an e-mail to NORAD at noradtrackssanta@gmail.com.

The USA Today has contributed to the report.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...

Italy: Free fall

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
