(DEC) NORAD TRACKS SANTA AGAIN

HELLO SANTA, IS THAT YOU?

Last year the NORAD Tracks Santa Web site had 912 million hits from 181 countries. This year, about 500 volunteers - most of them U.S. and Canadian military personnel and their families - will report for telephone-answering duty on Christmas Eve.

But already, youngsters are sending messages to Santa via the NORAD site. E-mails are arriving from India and Ireland and all over the world from children with their wish lists who want to talk to Santa, on average, 200 e-mails a day.”

NORAD Tracks Santa volunteers will answer calls from 2 a.m. MST Dec. 24 to 2 a.m. MST Dec. 25 at 877 446-6723 — toll-free in the United States — or at 719 474-2111.

OK Mom and Dad, Grandpa and Grandma, get the little ones tuned in!
