Track Santa's Journey From the North Pole Using Google's Santa Tracker

Have you been good this year? Then you may be interested to learn that Google today launched its annual Santa tracking feature, allowing Santa to be tracked in real time on his journey to the North Pole as he prepares to deliver presents to kids around the world.

Google's Santa Tracker continues a two-decade tradition for the company, allowing excited children (and grown-ups!) to keep up with the jolly gift-giver's travels throughout December 24. On this day, Santa's Village transforms into a tracking experience where children can follow Santa and his reindeer as they merrily go about their important work.

Santa can be tracked using a web browser on iPhone, iPad, or Mac by visiting Google's official Santa Tracking website. The site features a live map of Santa's current location, his next stop, a live video feed of his journey, and the estimated time that he will arrive in each specific location.

The Santa site provides pictures of locations that Santa has already visited, a live count of gifts that have been delivered, and Santa's current distance from your location. There are also a selection of games to play, creative things to do, and videos to watch.

Other Santa tracking services are also available, such as the NORAD Tracks Santa Claus app and website, but Google's site is often the most interactive and detailed.

Not sure linking yourself to someone who gives items away for free and is not looking for any on-going follow up revenue is something Apple is able to comprehend.
Perhaps if Santa needed to give Apple 30% of all the gifts then we'd see some development in this area ;)

And Santa just left the North Pole! It appears he is delivering presents over the ocean?!?
He’s dumping the Apple Watches people in the US asked for because of the import ban.

Even Santa can’t escape Google’s tracking. Must have an Android phone in that sleigh.

Merry Christmas / winter holiday of choice everyone.

I love stuff like this.

Don't be a grinch, people. At least once a year, open your hearts to the idea of magic.

Happy Holidays, all! ❄️

NORAD has been tracking him since 1955. Not sure why'd you want to use Google.
