McDonald's is offering customers nationwide a free small cup of McCafe coffee for two weeks.

Customers can only get the free coffee during regular breakfast hours.
The offer from McDonald's comes as fast food competitor Taco Bell rolled out its first breakfast menu last week.

In return for a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes, guests are asked to consider leaving a donation for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals or other designated local charities.

NORAD: No fighter escorts for Santa this year

NORAD: No fighter escorts for Santa this year

As it has every year since 1955, the North American Aerospace Defense Command will be tracking Santa on his whirlwind journey to deliver presents to all the good little boys and girls around the world.

But he won't be escorted by armed fighter jets.

When NORAD recently launched its yearly online Santa tracker, the site featured a video showing the jolly old elf being escorted by U.S. fighter jets "bristling with missiles," as the Boston Globe put it.

That caused a minor earthquake in the Twitterverse about why Santa would need an armed escort. The answer: Russia.

But a NORAD spokesman confirmed to Military Times that the "missiles" are actually fuel tanks.
