Ramblings of a Baltimore area Realtor: June Piper-Brandon, Piecing Dreams One Home at a Time (Houwzer Inc)

Norad Santa Tracker Turns 65

Norad Santa Tracker Turns 65

For those of you who don't know, I was born in North Bay, Ontario in Canada.  North Bay's claim to fame is that it is home to the northernmost Norad station and broadcasts the first sighting of Santa Claus every Christmas Eve and it has for the last 65 years.  The North Bay Norad Station houses American troops as well as Canadian armed forces.  A few years ago there was talk about canceling the broadcast and there was such a huge outcry from parents and children it was decided to continue the efforts. 

Originally, it was just a radio broadcast, you can call in too, now there are all kinds of social media activities for kids leading up to the actual event.  

When I was overseas, listening to the Santa Tracker gave me a sense of home and being connected to my home and it still does.  I am proud to be from the town that broadcasts joy to so many!!
