Track Santa and Learn About Christmas Traditions Around the World

If your family celebrates Christmas and you're looking for a nice activity to do with young kids at home, take a look Google's annual Santa Tracker website. The site lets kids see when and where Santa is traveling from his home at the North Pole. The Santa Tracker site shows you where Santa is in relation to your location at any given time. One of the neat educational tie-ins is that you can click on Santa's current location to learn more about the Christmas traditions in that place.

The Santa Tracker site also has a little geography quiz based on Santa's travels around the globe.
