Santa usually starts his journey at the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean and travels west.

Santa should be very familiar with New Jersey. These activities are in support of the NORAD Tracks Santa Operations Center at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, which leads the Santa monitoring effort.

NORAD's tradition of tracking Santa began in 1955 with a misprint in a sears ad.

She spoke to to Col. Harry Shoup, who had assured her he would track Santa and make sure he was safe that night.

The practice continued and was taken over in 1958 by NORAD, the bi-national air defense command for North America, run by the governments of Canada and the United States.
