In the mood for Christmas? Check out the Google Santa Tracker, an interactive website that has more than 20 Christmas-themed games like Elf Maker, Present Drop, Santa search game, Gumball Tilt and Penguin Dash.
It doesn’t have to be just fun and games – you can also pick up coding by playing a navigational game called Code Lab or Santa Postcards where you learn how to make snowflakes and code at the same time.
There is also Holiday Traditions, which tells you about Christmas traditions in other countries, and a feature that lets you say Merry Christmas in other languages, including Japanese and Thai.
The Santa Tracker will go live on Christmas Eve – you will be able to see where Santa is going after he takes off from the North Pole to deliver presents.
Santa will share his locations on Google Maps. At each stop, he will share an interesting trivia and give you an update on the number of presents he has delivered so far.
Apparently, Santa can deliver up to seven million gifts in one night. If you didn’t get one, maybe he has bumped you off his Nice list.
Google Assistant is also part of the Santa Tracker experience. Ask Google “Where is Santa?” and you will get an address of Santa’s main post office in the Arctic Circle. Try that again on Dec 24 for clues on Santa’s whereabouts.
You can also download a Google Santa Tracker app to check out the games and keep track of Santa, but it’s only available for Android phones.
Finally, don’t forget to check the website or app on Dec 24 for exclusive one-day only offers.
