Tracking Santa can be a fun activity for all ages on Christmas Eve. This year, Google is offering a host of interactive options for tracking the jolly old elf, including activities on the days leading up to Christmas! Read on to learn more about how you can track Santa on Christmas Eve.
Travel and Leisure ~ ” Google is offering many ways to track Santa this year — and everything is at your fingertips. When typing either ‘Santa’ or ‘Christmas’ into Google Search, 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 while waiting for Santa to arrive. On the Santa’s Village website, users can watch animated videos of Santa’s adventures, make their own Santa selfies, create their own elves and igloos, solve puzzles and games, and even track Santa on Christmas Eve.

Fun fact: Santa’s journey actually lasts 25 hours, according to Google. 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.
If you have a Google Assistant, you can even request it to ‘call Santa’ and get connected to one of the elves in his workshop, or say, ‘Hey Google, give me a Santa joke’ to hear a few custom recorded jokes from Santa himself. On the big day, you can also ask your Google Assistant to find Santa by saying, ‘Hey Google, track Santa’ or ‘Hey Google, where is Santa right now?’ ” ~ Travel and Leisure
