Michelle Obama helping track Santa Claus with NORAD

First lady Michelle Obama got into the Christmas spirit Saturday by helping field phone calls from excited children eagerly tracking Santa and his sleigh full of toys across the world.
“I’ve spotted a little dot, flashing dot that is over — right now, Santa’s sleigh is over the country of Latvia. And he’s delivering toys there,” Obama told three siblings. “It looks like he’s got all nine reindeer with him. And it looks like that sleigh is pretty full — yep, that’s what the experts here are saying.”
Obama took the phone calls from Hawaii where the first family is vacationing for Christmas.
She helped track Santa’s toy delivery route via a Google map specially created each year by the North American Aerospace Command, also known as NORAD. A tiny Santa icon is used to show his current location while a countdown clock below the map lets users know where he’ll take his sleigh next.
Most of the children she spoke to were more concerned with finding out Santa’s whereabouts than talking to the first lady, but one parent appeared to catch Obama by surprise when he asked, “What do you want for Christmas this year from Santa?”
