(AP) -- Want to keep track of Santa this Christmas? There's an app for that.

NORAD is the military organization responsible for the aerospace and maritime defense of the U.S. and Canada. The North American Aerospace Defense Command tracks Santa on Eve.

This year, it's counting down to Santa's takeoff with the NORAD Tracks Santa , which is offering games like Elf Toss until the big moment. It is available on Apple products and , and social media sites.

The agency offers information by phone and online about St. Nick's location. Last year, it set a record with more than 7,000 emails and more than 80,000 calls, some of which were answered by U.S. first lady Michelle Obama via a hookup from Hawaii, where her family was vacationing.

This is nothing but a SCAM by the American Military.

I was talking to Santa last night, and he says that his anti-ELF Technology can not be tracked by NORAD.

It is only through the use of superior superluminal technology of his Martian enemies can the space-time coordinates of his FTL sleigh can be measured.

Can NORAD track Dr Who's Tardis? No way. Do they claim to be able to do so? Nope.

QED.
