Popular Santa Tracker Draws Criticism with Addition of Fighter Jets.

Santa Tracker Gets More 'Operational Feel'

NORAD's child friendly ‘Santa Tracker' program is raising some eyebrows with its inclusion of F-18 Fighter Jets that will be traveling with Santa in this year's virtual program.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command for years has used global military radar installations to track Santa's route as he travels the world delivering presents.

NORAD said this year's change will give the popular ‘Santa Tracker' more of an "operational feel".

The site currently counts down the days until Santa's big adventure on Christmas Eve, but on Christmas Day, the site will report where Santa is and how many presents have been delivered to boys and girls around the world.
