Put on the cheesy music and pour the egg nog, it’s finally Christmas Eve! And for millions of kids around the world, that means that it won’t be long now until Santa Claus shows up.

In this day and age of GPS technology, it’s never been easier to track Santa on his 20,000+ mile route around the planet. In fact, you can actually do it right from your iPhone…

Google has activated its popular Google Maps Santa Tracker to help you keep tabs on Santa’s progress tonight. It’ll tell you where he’s at, how many presents he’s delivered, and more.

“We’ve received this special preview from one of Santa’s many developer elves, who are hard at work in the North Pole helping Santa prepare for his big day. Santa’s dashboard – featuring the latest and greatest in Google Maps technology and sleigh engineering – will allow you to follow his progress around the world, and also learn a little about some of his stops along the way.”

Additionally, the Santa Tracker also offers up information about the areas Santa visits, including photos and Wikipedia details. It’s quite interesting really, there’s a lot of data involved.

Google’s Tracker can be viewed on a desktop, but it looks especially great on your iPhone or iPad. If you want to check it out, simply visit www.google.com/santatracker on your device.

Happy holidays!

      Christians didn’t create Santa, get your facts right dumbass. I’m not going to go into a religious rant but watch what you say on a tech oriented site; you may be offending people

      How silly are you. What does this have to do with Christianity? Oh and silly are those atheists that believe the world just exists, out of nowhere, for no reason. Oh yea, that sounds so fucking believable that we have such a beautiful world from nowhere… God may not be easier to believe, but at least it makes more sense.

        Christiens like u are so blind you make me nauseous, either you are still young or has not kept up with modern scientific developements, how did god instantly create the universe when the big bang is a continuous process that is not instant? And the laws of science govern the universe, together with Stephen Hawkings’ quote ‘There is no heaven or afterlife, merely fairy stories for people afraid of the dark.
