Santa Claus is coming to town. I shouldn't have dropped such major news on you like this, but it's happening and you have so little time to get your affairs in order. 11 days now separate us from his jolly visit which, unlike all other relatives who drop in for the holidays, is short, straight to the point, and rather beneficial. If you want to stay updated on the projected arrival of the present-carrying cookie-eating sleigh-riding bearded old man, Google Now is offering you a new card to help track him down.

Simply search for Santa or ask Google, "Where's Santa?" and you'll get a result that redirects you to the Santa Tracker site. Refresh Google Now and the card should appear and stay in your stream. It's easier than installing the separate Santa Tracker app, it's good fun for the kids who want to keep a close eye on their favorite imaginary friend, and it should remind you to dial down the naughty and be more nice before Christmas eve.

Thanks, Cole.
