Tracking Santa This Year on Google

This Christmas you can track Santa on Google! Type either “Santa” or “Christmas” into Google Search and you’ll see a spinning hat appear on the right side of the page that will take you to Santa’s Village — a fun virtual world featuring holiday characters, a countdown clock to the big day, and interactive activities. On the days leading up to Christmas Eve, kids and adults alike can enjoy holiday-related activities on the Santa’s Village website. You can watch animated videos of Santa’s adventures, make Santa selfies, create elves and igloos, solve puzzles and games, and even track Santa on Christmas Eve.

Fun fact: According to Google, Santa’s journey actually lasts 25 hours. He makes his first stop just after 10 p.m. local time in far eastern Russia, when it’s 5 a.m. in New York and 11 a.m. in Paris.
