the origin of NORAD tracking Santa:

Harry Shoup is the man who started all this 52 years ago, after taking a very strange phone call.

"Oh my goodness, I'll never forget it," Shoup says. On Dec. 24, 1955, he was a colonel in charge of a massive radar system built to give the U.S. early warning of the Soviet attack many people feared was imminent. The Cold War was at its height. The Pentagon was building nuclear missiles, the Kremlin doing the same. At his windowless base in Colorado Springs, Colo., in front of a massive map of the world, Shoup was keeping watch for Communist bombers.

"The red phone rang," he says. That never happened, and it meant huge trouble. The red phone was the emergency line: It could only be his commander calling, or the Pentagon. "I picked it up and I said: 'Yes, sir? This is Colonel Shoup.' "

There was no answer for a moment. Then came the hesitant voice of a small boy. "Are you really Santa Claus?" ...
