Santa’s Village is back for Christmas 2021, and it’s better than ever before. New Christmas games and videos help you (or your children) make custom elves, shave Santa, and even learn to code! And of course, Santa’s Village features a real-time Santa Tracker that’ll come in handy on Christmas Eve!

To unlock Santa’s Village, simply perform a Google Search for “Christmas” and click the present that shows up at the top of your results. You can also search for “Google Santa Tracker” and click the first result, which will take you directly to Santa’s Village.

Upon visiting Santa’s Village, you’re met with a cute animated screen and some buttons. I suggest clicking “Family Guide” in the bottom-left corner of the screen to learn about Santa’s Village, although you can skip straight to the games and videos by pressing the top-left button.

My favorite game at Santa’s Village is Santa Selfie. You get to play the role of Santa’s barber in this game, shaving, dying, and accessorizing his beard in anticipation of Christmas.

Google introduced Santa’s Village in 2020 to improve its custom Santa Tracker. As such, the village will feature Google’s Santa Tracker on Christmas Eve. Be sure to bookmark Santa’s Village if you want to visit it again on December 24th.
