The big man's trackers at NORAD say Santa Claus broke records on social media and by old-fashioned telephone this Christmas Eve.
Volunteers at NORAD Tracks Santa at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado were fielding 4,000 calls an hour Saturday morning, on pace to break a record. Santa's NORAD Facebook page exceeded 840,000 "likes" by mid-morning.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command has been telling children about Santa's whereabouts every year since 1955, when a newspaper ad invited kids to call Santa on a hotline. A typo led dozens of kids to call the command.
