‘Tis the season — Google launches its annual holiday village



SantaTracker2015_village-on-devices1It’s that time of the year. Eggnog is being served, lights and trees are going up, gifts are being purchased and wrapped, cookies baked and hopefully there is good cheer all around.

This time of year also means certain websites get active. NORAD gets ready to track Santa’s journey and Google is unleashing its Santa’s Village site.

This is more than just tracking St. Nick’s journey around the world on December 24th, there’s the chance to learn about holiday traditions in other countries, there will be a new one to study each day.

The service will even be compatible with Chromecast and Android Wear. In fact, you can even learn to code with games available throughout the month. There’s also information on charitable services so that you can help make the holidays a bit better for someone in need of cheer.

“Now before Santa flies like the dawn of a thistle, pay his village a visit—and help him and his elves get ready for the day Santa hits the clouds”, Google concludes. You can check it out here.
