Christmas is upon us and that means that millions of little boys and girls will be waking up to presents under a tree as the day progresses. As always NORAD has their Santa tracker up and running, and this year so does Google.

Unfortunately one of the systems tracking software is out of whack or they are tracking two different jolly old men. At the time of this writing, NORAD says that Santa is on his way to Hong Kong, but Google is tracking him as he is on his way to Taipei Taiwan. Google says that Santa has delivered 2,187,948,856 presents already and traveled more than 66,000km.
