I remember watching the approach of Santa on our local TV news, once he neared Nova Scotia, we headed for bed to make sure we were asleep so he wouldn't skip our house along the way.
I've been tracking Santa on the internet for three years. I shared the link with the grandkids one year and it brought back all those wonderful emotions of a child at Christmas - still existing in me.
Last summer during our Heritage Weekend (Civic Holiday in Canada), I was able to visit (tour) our branch of Norad (underground) for the last time. It is now closed to tours as they prepare to move the site above ground.
During the tour when we saw the radar screen and the people working "in the hole" I exclaimed - "hey that's where you track, Santa Claus!" It shocked a few folks that someone my age would be reduced to about seven with the first glimpse at the huge viewing area - it rather tickled the spirit of the two young lads that were with me and my older cousins, and the guide himself chuckled at my delight.
i remember we would be watching the news and the local guys would say... ok kids. santa has just been spotted in dallas (i was in houston) <or someplace near... maybe NOLA... > so yall need to go to bed now. and off we would go!
