With just four weeks until Christmas, there's no doubt that Santa Claus is busy in the North Pole at this very moment getting ready for his big around-the-world journey.

And come Dec. 24, you'll be able to track Santa's sleigh as it travels the globe, thanks to Google. The Web giant just re-launched its Santa Tracker site, where you'll be able to follow Saint Nick's progress around the world on Christmas Eve, and learn about some of his stops along the way.

To tide you over, Google said it nabbed a "special preview" of Santa's dashboard the technology that powers his sleigh around the world from the big guy's developer elves, who are hard work in the North Pole helping prepare for the holiday. Head over to the site now for a countdown to Santa's departure and a new project or game every day until Christmas Eve.

"December may mean snow days in Denver, Colo. or beach days in Sydney, Australia, but in Santa's Village, it means the countdown to Santa's big night," Google's Santa Launch Strategist Sandy Russell wrote in a blog post Monday. "Starting today, the elves are back on the clock in the North Pole and throughout the month of December."
