Race with Rudolph and skydive with Santa in the countdown to December 24 in Google's Santa Tracker App

As Christmas approaches, get ready to track Santa’s journey across the globe with Google’s Santa Tracker.


In Santa’s Village, games and scenes will become available every day in December. This year, you’ll find an education touch — new geography games let you explore local holiday traditions, while a new coding project teaches basic JavaScript as you help Santa and the reindeer navigate the map. Learn how to say “Santa” in different languages, and connect with nonprofits around the world. 


Of course, fan favorites are making a return this year — you can send a call from Santa to your friends and  family, display Santa’s journey on the TV screen with Chromecast, and play gumdrop and reindeer racing games. You’ll be able to play each game on desktop, mobile web, or on the Santa Tracker Android app.  


On December 24th, millions of people will have the chance to see Santa’s reindeers guide him across the globe as he delivers presents with Google’s Santa Tracker. Until then, enjoy all Santa’s Village has to offer!


December may mean snow days in Denver, Colorado or beach days in Sydney, Australia, but in Santa’s Village, it means the countdown to Santa’s big night. Starting today, the elves are back on the clock in the North Pole. And throughout the month of December, you can join the elves as they unlock a new project or game each day in preparation for Santa’s annual journey around the world. 


The elves have a busy month ahead of them—the reindeers need training and the presents need packing. They’re studying up on Santa’s upcoming stops with candy cane cartography, holiday tradition tests, and even jolly JavaScript courses.


Throughout the holiday celebration, our own developer elves here at Google have also been hard at work getting the sleigh tracking algorithm ready for prime time. They’ve been adding finishing touches to the Santa Tracker App for Android so Santa’s just a tap away on phones, tablets, and TVs. The developer elves have been busy, so check out the chrome extension and keep a watch out for Santa surprises throughout the month. 


Whether you’re wearing snow goggles or sunnies this December, come back to www.google.com/santatracker each day to join in on present parachute practice and reindeer races, or to send a call to friends from Santa. There’s only 23 days to go, so follow Google Maps on Google+, Facebook and Twitter in the countdown #tracksanta


Mappy holidays!
