(KAILUA, Hawaii) — First lady Michelle Obama continued her tradition of answering calls from children who are curious about Santa’s whereabouts on Christmas Eve, as part of the annual NORAD Tracks Santa Program through the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
Each year, more than 1,200 volunteers answer hundreds of thousands of phone calls and emails from those trying to track Old Saint Nick.
The first lady took her calls from the family’s vacation rental in Kailua, Hawaii.
