Google launched its Santa Tracker today, counting down the days until St. Nick takes flight on December 24.

Along with its tracker, Google also opened its Santa Village, where users can play coding games, learn about various holiday traditions across the globe and “get into the spirit of giving” with an entire page devoted to charitable organizations like the Jane Goodall Institute, the Nature Conservancy and SolarAid.

Santa’s Village is a hub of activity as the elves code algorithms to tune Santa’s sleigh, translate “Happy Holidays” into Elvish and Danish, and practice their cartography with Dancer, Prancer, Donner and Vixen… all to get Santa ready for his trip around the world.
