The holiday season is always special, but few were more special than Christmas Eve, 1968, when Apollo 8 orbited the moon, with the astronauts reading from the Book of Genesis. Apollo Flight Director Gerald D. "Gerry" Griffin joins us to recall that very special time, and we chat with retired Air Force Colonel Karlton Johnson about NORAD's tracking of Santa.
