Hi Mike, Just wanted to say hi & merry xmas & happy new year. Made a google maps christmas card, which i hope you & your crew will like. Keep up the good work! cheers, Emil Goh - Seoul
Accompanying Emil's greeting was this great Google Maps screenshot which shows how far Santa Claus is from Christmas!!
The answer: 874 miles (about 13 hours 42 mins)..If Santa decides to take it easy and checks the "Avoid Highways" box on Google Maps he may need to break the news to Rudolph that he'll be galloping an extra 60 miles for 7 more hours. :) Take a look at the entire route between Santa Claus, Indiana and Christmas, Florida. :) Check out Emil's post about the card on Theme Magazine!
More Christmas Maps fun:
- Google Maps Satellite Views: "Christmas 2007" - From GoogleSightseeing.com
- US Towns/Cities with holiday season names - There are apparently many more places named Christmas and Santa Claus in the US.. even some named Rudolph, Antlers, Holly, Jolly and yes, even North Pole. This mashup will help you locate all of these places and more! :)
- Check out how you and your kids can track Santa leading up to Christmas Eve using Google Earth and NoradSanta.org! There are some fun Christmas games you can take part in leading up to Christmas eve on NoradSanta as well! :)
