WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump answered Christmas Eve telephone calls from children anxious to locate Santa.

Trump asked one child whether he still believed in Santa and told another "I'll talk to you again." First lady Melania Trump joined the president and told a caller Santa was in the Sahara. Several minutes later, she reported that Santa was far away in Morocco but would be at the caller's home on Christmas morning.

The NORAD Tracks Santa program wasn't affected by the government shutdown. It's run by volunteers at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado using pre-approved Defense Department funding.

The program became a Christmas Eve tradition after a child mistakenly called the forerunner to the North American Aerospace Defense Command in 1955 and asked to speak to Santa.

Georgia father who worked as Walmart Santa arrested after bodies of teen children found buried in backyard.
A Georgia man who worked as a Walmart Santa Claus was arrested after the remains of his teen children were found buried in his backyard, authorities revealed. Autopsies confirmed the bodies of Mary Jo Crocker and her brother Elwyn Crocker Jr., both 14-years-old when they were last seen, on Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Mary had not been seen since October and Elwyn Jr. had been missing since November 2016 — but neither were reported missing. The Effingham County Sheriff’s Office received a tip about the missing girl on Dec. 20, which led investigators to interrogate all adults in the home — and find two bodies buried in a wooded area on Thursday.
