The time is almost here, just one more sleep until Christmas Day! Today is the last festive ‘thing’ we’ll be doing so we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for joining in Festive 24 Things with us and we wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

But there’s just one more thing to do first – find out where Santa is!

I’m sure many of you will have used Google Earth before (if not, I’d strongly recommend it – I could spend hours looking at different places on there!). If you haven’t used Google Earth you will probably be familiar with Google Maps. Both are really useful tools for checking out places of interest and planning a journey.

But on Christmas Eve (today!) you can do something extra special with both these – track Santa’s journey. If you go to Google Maps (also works on a mobile device) and simply search for “Santa” you’ll be able to see whereabouts he is at the moment and track his journey around the world. You can also follow his journey in Google Earth (see the video below to see some of his 2009 journey), and track his journey on Twitter.

I hope you’ll be asleep before he gets to you and that you’ve been good this year 😉

Welcome to Festive 24 Things, originally an advent calendar based on the same idea as the 23 Things programme.

Join Damyanti, Jo and Trudi in their festive quiz through useful (and hopefully fun!) online resources. Each day there will be a cryptic clue to the title of a Christmas carol (or song) and a tool which will also give you clues. At the end of the 24 days, we’ll ask you to submit your responses for each day and we’ll draw a winner

Please subscribe to the blog, or follow us on Twitter.
