First lady Michelle Obama helps make Christmas wishes come true by answering calls from children trying to track Santa’s flight around the world.
Michelle Obama has helped make holiday wishes come true by helping children track how much progress Santa had made on his gift-giving journey on Christmas Eve.
The first lady joined military personnel by answering phone calls and emails on Saturday as part of the annual North American Aerospace Defense Command Tracks Santa operation.
While many would love to receive a Christmas Eve phone call from the first lady, a little boy named Austin really just wanted to speak to Santa.
‘I want to hear Santa talk,’ said Austin, one of a handful of kids who called the NORAD Tracks Santa program on Saturday and found Michelle Obama on the other end of the line.
Mrs Obama, who is in Hawaii on vacation with her family, patiently explained that Santa couldn’t get to the phone ‘because he’s delivering all the gifts’.
