Here's an interactive Advent calendar that is really suited for modern times! Google has put together this Christmas Village where fun features are revealed every day leading up to December 24th, when the Santa Tracker will go live and let us all follow Santa's journey around the world.
The great part of Google's village is that the features are a combination of fun and educational - the first day features both a game where you bounce presents into Santa's pack and a map that shows Christmas traditions around the world.
Visit the site throughout December to see different daily addition to the Christmas village, featuring Santa, the elves, reindeer, and Google-themed characters.
In addition to the Santa Tracker website, there is an Android app and Chrome extension. The Chrome extension puts the countdown timer in your browser and adds additional fun cartoons that overlay webpages.
