(Relaxnews) – The tech giants have launched their updated Santa trackers just in time to keep kids busy awaiting the big festivities ahead.

Both brands offer online games and Christmas-themed activities that include basic programming, elf dances, holiday songs and sections on Christmas traditions worldwide. Google’s tracker can detect your location and gives estimates on Santa’s distance while Microsoft’s trackers allows users to simply ask Santa’s location out loud using a mobile device or a computer.

For the third year running, Microsoft has partnered with the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) for its Christmas tracking special reports online technology source Tech Crunch.
