From the liner notes -
The "NORAD Tracks Santa" tradition goes back to the late 1950s when a
young boy accidentally dialed the unlisted number of the Director of Combat
Operations at NORAD Headquarters in Colorado Springs. The boy was
actually trying to phone a department store Santa Claus whose extension
was only one digit removed from the phone at the NORAD center.
The Combat Operations Center Director was quick to realize that a
mistake had been made, and carried on a long conversation with the boy,
assuring him that the forces of NORAD would indeed guarantee Santa a
safe trip from the North Pole.
A novel idea and tradition was thus born, and you have the results of it
inside this jacket…a series of spots citing the progress of Santa as he makes
his annual journey down through the space tracking and radar facilities of
the North American Air Defense Command.
