    Does air force really have a pilot flying around looking for Santa? Or they just use Satellite to track Santa? How to they verify he is really Santa instead of imposter? So many questions.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    I Just assumed that they got in touch with him and Santa's OK with it all -- he probably lets them know when he's setting off so they can verify it's him.

    "The program began on December 24, 1955 when a Sears department store placed an advertisement in a Colorado Springs newspaper which told children that they could telephone Santa Claus and included a number for them to call. However, the telephone number printed was incorrect and calls instead came through to Colorado Springs' Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) Center. Colonel Shoup, who was on duty that night, told his staff to give all children that called in a "current location" for Santa Claus. A tradition began which continued when the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) replaced CONAD in 1958."

    I heard the real reason behind drone development was to allow him to keep up with the worldwide population explosion.  The days of individual visitation are soon to be over, but santaco drones will not let children down.

    The CIA drugged Santa in September of 1955, and implanted a transmitter up his butt... well, his abdominal cavity, really. Because he repeatedly invaded US air space. But now, like most things, it's for entertainment values.
