It was the night before Christmas — 6:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, to be exact — and rich aromas of brisket and Brussels sprouts filled the kitchen of Collman Lloyd’s home in Lexington, S.C.

At this hour, Santa could have been in a chimney in the Middle East, or perhaps headed toward Africa or Eastern Europe in his sleigh.

Lloyd, 7, wanted to know precisely where the man in the red suit was and whether he’d make his way over her South Carolina town. She contacted the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), which has tracked Santa’s whereabouts for 63 years. A scientist answered the phone and asked Lloyd if she would like to speak with President Donald Trump.
