Google’s Santa Tracker Is Packed With Features for 2020

Google has launched a Santa tracker and Santa village.

Sure, Google Doodles are exciting, but this year, there’s so much more. You can track Santa via Google, and there’s an entire Santa’s Village to enjoy, too.

While Google has historically rolled out a Christmas Eve tracker to help excited kiddos keep an eye on Santa’s travels around the globe, this year, the tracker destination is a whole North Pole experience. When you use the search feature to look up Santa or Christmas, a spinning hat will appear. Click on it, and you’ll be transported to Santa’s Village. While there, you and your kids can do everything from learning how to code with the elves to exploring global holiday traditions to building a snow castle leading up to the main event: Christmas Eve.

Google Santa Tracker won’t go live until Christmas Eve, and Santa’s journey will take a whopping 25 hours according to the site. You and the kids can start tracking the big man at 10 p.m. local time in Russia (or 5 p.m. if you’re on Eastern time in the U.S.). But if your kiddos just can’t wait to see Santa, you can head over to Santa’s Village now and start getting festive in the upcoming days before Christmas.
