According to the NORAD website, which apparently tracks Santa's flight path on his sleigh, the jolly man in red did not make a stop in Singapore. STOMPer SC pointed this out to STOMP when he visited the website. The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), which monitors the North American airspace, set up a Santa Tracker on its website to allow people to locate Santa's location using Google Earth. This tradition of Santa-tracking apparently dates back to 1955. An advertisement in a Colorado newspaper which allowed children to call a number to talk to Santa Claus mistakenly directed them to NORAD's hotline. NORAD checked the radar and updated the children on Santa's whereabouts, to avoid disappointing the children. According to an article in the Internet, the official word from the agency is that Santa is real.
