Day 104 of My Italian Learning Journal*
As I promised a few blogs ago, here is the information about the NORAD Tracks Santa website. What started as a child's call to a wrong number to ask where Santa was, has become an annual tradition of tracking Santa on Christmas Eve. NORAD is the North American Aerospace Defense Command. I have placed two hyperlinks below: one for the story about how this tradition started, and the other to access the NORAD Track Stata website. The NORAD Track Santa begins in one day. If you have children, if you are young at heart yourself, visit this entertaining website, and you can see as Santa flies over many cities around the globe.
- Più di sessanta anni fa, un bambino ha chiamato un numero di telefono per chiedere dove era Babbo Natale.
Over sixty years ago, I child called a phone number to ask where Santa Claus was.
- Il numero di telefono era un numero sbagliato.
The phone number was a wrong number.
- Alla telefonata ha risposto un ufficiale del NORAD.
The call was answered by a NORAD officer.
- È così che è iniziata la tradizione.
That is how the tradition started.
- Ora il NORAD traccia Bobbo Natale su Internet alla vigilia di Natale.
Now NORAD tracks Santa on the Internet on Christmas Eve.
