Santa Claus is coming to town

By Victoria Walker
On Thursday, Dec. 18 Santa Claus is making a pre-Christmas visit to Prosser. This year Santa will be riding in a fire truck instead of a sleigh. The reindeer need to rest up for Christmas Eve, which is a really long night for them.
When asked why he was coming to Prosser early, Santa said, "I just want to say hello to all the Prosser children before Christmas. I made arrangements with the Prosser Fire Department and it looks like a go."
Norad tracks Santa

For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa's Christmas Eve flight.
The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement for children to call Santa misprinted the telephone number. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief's operations "hotline." The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south from the North Pole. Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born.
