‘Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house
Children are tracking Santa
With the click of a mouse.
The time has come again to follow Santa Claus on his journey as he delivers presents around the world.
Thanks to this year’s Santa Tracker apps from Google and NORAD, you can see when he will be near your home. Here are the online tools you need.
Official NORAD Santa Tracker
NORAD continues its 60+ year tradition of tracking the location of Santa Claus.
In addition to tracking Santa’s current location via satellite imagery, there’s a real-time counter of how many gifts he’s delivered so far.
Users can learn more about the locations he’s been to so far with quick links to Wikipedia.
There’s also a selection of ‘Santa Cam’ videos, which document such things as his initial spotting at the North Pole.
Official Google Santa Tracker
Google offers a variety of ways to track Santa this year.
These include the traditional web-based Santa tracker, as well as a dedicated app and Google Assistant commands.
Google’s Santa tracker shows his current location, where he’s going next, distance from your location, and when you can expect his arrival.
While waiting for Santa, users can play a number of different games in Santa’s village or watch fun videos.
With Google Assistant, users can easily find out his current location with the command “Where’s Santa?”
Those who will be out and about today can take the Santa tracker with them with a dedicated Android app.
From the whole team at SEJ, a very Merry Christmas to all!
