Don’t worry, fans of Santa Claus. You still will be able to track Santa's arrival despite a partial government shutdown.

In light of the partial shutdown, the North American Aerospace Defense Command said it would still track Santa’s route once again, according to The Hill.

This will be the 63rd year NORAD will do its Santa Tracker.

Despite the partial government shutdown, NORAD is funded by the Department of Defense and has a full year of funding remaining, according to The Hill.

NORAD said more than 1,000 volunteers help run the program each year.
