Google’s Virtual Holiday Village Lets Your Track Santa, Play Games, and More

To help you catch Santa as he delivers presents this year, Google has set up a virtual holiday village where kids and adults alike can not only track Santa in real-time, but also enjoy holiday-related activities while waiting for Santa to arrive. 


Whenever you search for “Santa” or “Christmas” on Google, you’ll see a familiar red hat on the results page. Click on it and hold on for deer life as you fly off to Santa’s Village. Starting on December 24, you will be able to follow Santa on his journey around the world with Santa Tracker.

On the days leading up to Christmas Eve, Santa’s Village website lets users watch animated videos of Santa’s adventures, make their own Santa selfies, create their own elves and igloos, solve puzzles and play games.

“After 1,740 magical years at the North Pole, elves know a thing or two about being on ice while sharing the Yuletide joy…but this year they’ll need your help getting Santa’s sleigh ready. Families around the world can help the elves get ready to export the cheer with Elf Maker, which lets you create your own elves. The elves will then be ready to load Santa’s sleigh for the big night!”
