Part of the fun of Christmas Eve is anticipating Santa Claus shooting down the chimney to drop toys and presents under the tree. Of course, he's not going to come inside when the little boys and girls are awake...but we can estimate his arrival with today's technology.
Right now, Santa and his elves are still working on logistics, so we aren't able to see when he'll stop by the Twin Cities. However, we'll be able to start tracking on December 24. In the meantime, you can see how far away Christmas is down to the second on Google's Santa Tracker and play games like Wrap Battle, Elf Maker, Code Boogie, Present Bounce, Penguin Dash, Gumball Tilt, Elf Jamband, and Gift Slingshot, among others.
And yes, there's even an app for all of this (check the Google Play store).
NORAD's Santa Tracker allows you to explore the North Pole, play other games, watch movies, and more. Santa tracking will become available closer to Christmas.
