The countdown to Christmas Day has officially begun on Google with the launch of its annual Santa Tracker on the 1st of December. Use Google Santa Tracker to follow Santa Claus on Google Maps as he makes his journey around the world.
You find every day, between now and Christmas, a different Christmas related game.
A world full of traditions
The Google Santa Tracker includes a Google Map looking at different Christmas Traditions around the world. Fascinating to explore how different cultures celebrate Christmas around the world. Have you heard about the Christmas Cat in Iceland? Then check out the Christmas Traditions!
In addition to the countdown clock, Google also opened its Santa Village, offering a site for parents and educators with activities for students, a Santa Tracker app for Android and a Santa Tracker Chrome extension (in case you want to keep track of Santa’s “precise” location at all times).
How to pimp your x-mas?
- Give Google Maps on your website in a X-mas look! Just copy the java script into your settings and Google Maps on your web or app let people already feel it’s Christmas time!
- Send a snowy x-mas wish using Google Earth: Creating your own holiday message is very easy – you just need to enter your address or, to create an instant message, just share your location with the app.
