HONOLULU (AP) - Want to know where Santa is? Just ask Michelle Obama. The first lady is answering calls from children checking in with the "Tracks Santa" program of the North American Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs. With the help of NORAD's Santa Route Schedule, Mrs. Obama is telling children Santa's whereabouts as he makes his journey around the world on Christmas Eve.
The NORAD program has been helping children track Santa since 1955. The Obamas are spending the holidays in Hawaii, the president's home state. The first family has no public events scheduled for their vacation, though locals are hoping the Obamas will make a few stops around town as they have in past years.
