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.
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 noradsanta.org. It's great fun, especially for children. (CountryDew has been tracking Santa at the website for over a decade.)
