Want to keep tabs on Santa's trek around the globe? There are two options to enjoy this Christmas.

Like last year, both NORAD and Google will offer their own Santa Tracker websites with additional goodies from games to phone calls from Kris Kringle himself. Here's how to find them and what to expect:

NORAD Santa Tracker

The official tracker of St. Nick will go live very early Tuesday morning and follow Santa's trip around the globe. While they wait, users can visit Santa's Village to play games, listen to holiday music, watch movies on Santa and NORAD, and learn about holiday traditions.

If you don't want to sit in front of a computer, NORAD also has apps for iOS and Android.

Google Santa Tracker

The charming tracker from Google kicks off a couple hours after NORAD, but features an adorable take on Santa's Village, with animations featuring elves on the playground and wind tunnels to test reindeer speeds. There are also a variety of fun games and the Call From Santa, where users can have Santa make a special phone call.

If you have an Android device, you can track Santa's path on the official Google app, which is also compatible with Chromecast for users who want to view the tracker from their TVs.
