December 24, 2015

Welcome to Thursday 13! Seasons Greetings to all who are celebrating something this time of year. May your days be blessed and your joy boundless.

Thursday 13 is an easy meme - just write a list of 13 things. What kind of things? Any kind! Books, whatever is on your mind, lists of things on your desk, stuff you collect, quotations, . . . whatever you can think of is fair game.

So please join in the fun and sign up with Mr. Linky after the little Fun Fact.

Fun Fact

On December 24, 1955 NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) began tracking Santa. This happened because an ad in a Colorado newspaper gave children Santa's phone number, but a misprint sent calls to a red phone at the NORAD air defense command center. Col. Harry Shoup adjusted on the fly and told staff to give the kids Santa's "current location." A tradition was born.
Check out NORAD TRACKS SANTA at It's great fun, especially for children. (CountryDew has been tracking Santa at the website for over a decade.)
And here's Mr. Linky!


  1. The tidbit about Norad is pretty cool!

  2. Blessings to you and yours and more in 2016!! Sandy

  3. I just wrote down Santa's phone number. Supposedly, guy started it after people started calling 1-8000-SANTA and got his business. Be well and merry!


Welcome to Thursday Thirteen, and thanks for playing!
