In 1958, the governments of Canada and the United States created a bi-national air defense command for North America called the North American Aerospace Defense Command, also known as NORAD, which then took on the tradition of tracking Santa.

WDBJ7 is tracking Santa with NORAD! Last year, more than 1,500 volunteers staffed the hotline, which received about 154,000 calls. Amazon Alexa users can also ask for Santa's location and OnStar subscribers can press the OnStar button in their vehicles to locate Santa.

According to a NORAD press release, "any time on December 24, Amazon Alexa users can ask for Santa's location through the NORAD Tracks Santa skill for Amazon Alexa, and OnStar subscribers can press the OnStar button in their vehicles to locate Santa".
