When Santa's sleigh flies through the sky Christmas Eve he'll have extra security, military fighter jets.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command or NORAD added the twist to this year's animated tracking of Santa's Reindeer flight.
But the addition is not sitting well with some child advocates. They claim military jets have no place in childhood fantasy.
A NORAD spokesman says adding the jets was part of an effort to give the program a more "operational feel." The military has been telling children Santa's whereabouts since the mid-1950s.
