Let’s find out what the 2019 Santa Tracker has in place for you and your friends and how you can make the best out of its fun elements.
How Santa Tracker Works?
Santa Tracker is an animated setting of a Google Santa Village where every character from his folklore resides. The tracker actually begins around midnight on December 25, when Santa begins his tour across the globe to distribute presents. Making his first stop in far eastern Russia, Santa begins his 25-hour long journey which includes famous stop locations such as Paris and New York. The site visitors experience great visual changes as Santa reaches different locations while waiting for Christmas carols to arrive home.
But, before Christmas, the site, however, locked, comprise some fine creations, pass-time games, and Christmas trifles that you can explore while eagerly waiting for the big day.
Here’s what the Google Santa Tracker has in its bucket for you and your loved ones:
1. Get Your Kids to Learn Code
A small puzzle-like game called Code Lab allows users to solve puzzled and code directions for Santa’s elf. The game features an elf struggling his way through blockades and trying to get to his gift. It’s up to you to help him find a way to his gift by coding a blockade-free direction for him using directional commands. Though a simple pass time, it’s a great pleasure for the kids to help their friendly elves reaching for their gifts while waiting for the real ones they are about to get on Christmas.
2. Discover How World Celebrates Christmas
Christmas is perhaps the only festival which is celebrated throughout the globe with equal enthusiasm and respect for Christianity’s traditions. But little do we know that Christianity has its own history in different parts of the world and therefore, these traditions differ in those parts. And this is the reason that every major nation celebrating Christmas has its own elements added to it.
With Google Santa Tracker, you can learn all there is to know about how the world celebrated Christmas. The Holiday Traditions module of the website takes you from the United States, Brazil, and Argentina to Iceland, the United Kingdom, and Kyrgyzstan. All these location points open up with a snippet citing what local folklore and traditions influence Christmas over there. A great place to know the global perspective of Christmas.
3. Wish Your Foreign Friends Merry Christmas
Thanks to Google Translate, you can wish your friends from vast nations a Merry Christmas. A module on Google Santa Tracker runs Google Translate’s code to translate Christmas phrases in multiple languages. Learn how you can spread Google Santa village and its harmony across the globe.
4. Help Santa Uncover Unknown Lands
Another fun game which is going to test not just the kids’ but your adult’s geography as well. In this Map Quiz, All you need to do is put the country right at its location on the world map, and help Santa make a perfect route for this Christmas. Get your geography tested guys!
5. Can You Draw?
This is the best thing to do when you’re bored at the office. Even I went on to play it for I don’t know how long when I was writing this blog. Quick Draw is a 30-second drawing challenge where you’ll be asked to draw a figure from famous Christmas folklore. If you have your image in the right place, I think you’ll be able to beat that Google bot who’s going to be the judge of your creativity. Go and pick up a brush!
Get to work guys cause Santa is coming. Google Santa Tracker is giving you an opportunity to create a perfect Santa stay in your own virtual imagination. Use the minimal tools and create castles, snow trees, snow people, and further design a Santa’s village of your own made entirely of ice and snow. Sounds exciting right? Then let’s get to work with Santa’s Snowbox.
7. Give Santa Some Style
As far as I know, I would never recognize Santa without his long white beard and his red cap. But I also can’t stop wondering how he’d have looked if he had followed the latest grooming trends. Well, it’s time to find out. Santa Selfie allows you to groom Santa in your favorite look. Give him a shave or a nice trim or even adjust his short hair above. Guess we find out all the disguises of our beloved Santa.
8. Teach Your Kids All About Christmas
A short video titled A Day at the Museum will take you through the traditions and tales of Christmas. Join elves, Santa, the reindeer and everyone from Santa’s village for a visit to the Museum of Holiday and Cheers, and learn how Santa Claus has become the best tale of Christmas since the ages.
9. Use Google Assistant as your pre-Christmas Host
Google Santa Tracker uses Google Assistant to run a North Pole Newscast to run updates on Christmas and Google Santa Village in the most fun ways. Elves would host your newscast while you’ll be taken on a troll of early Christmas preparations at Santa’s place. All you need to ask Google Assistant – “what’s new at the North Pole”.
