5 Fantastic Christmas Websites For Your Family To Enjoy

We’ve been scouring the Internet this month for festive delights so you can enjoy using your #FastestIW Wightfibre connection! If you only try one of these sites we’d recommend the free personalised greeting from Father Christmas which will have your children watching in awe…


The Google Santa Tracker

The Google Santa Tracker has been running for a few years now and will be showcasing their new-look Santa Tracker dashboard on Christmas Eve! In the meantime you and your family can explore Santa’s village whilst he prepares for his busiest night of the year.

The Google Santa tracker website and app are available to visit now and are made my Goggle’s top notch developers (and a sprinkle of elf magic).


Elf Yourself

Elf Yourself is probably a site you’ve stumbled upon before as it has been running now for over 10 years. Regardless, we thought that we’d remind you in case you forget to make your annual video.

For those of you that haven’t heard about Elf Yourself, it allows you to put your friends and family in to an entertaining Christmas music video. You can become the star of a personalised video by uploading up to five photos from your computer’s photo gallery or Facebook. You then need to select a dance theme, and the website will generate a custom Elf Yourself video that you can send by email or post to Facebook where you can tag your friends.

As with several other sites that we’re looking at, Office Max’s Elf Yourself has an accompanying app, so you can enjoy hilarious videos with your friends and family on the move as well as at home.


Portable North Pole

‘Wow’ your children this Christmas with a personalised greeting from Father Christmas himself. For your personalised greeting, Father Christmas just needs to know:

  • ❄ The child or adult’s name
  • ❄ Their date of birth
  • ❄ What they have done particularly well this year (multiple choice answers)
  • ❄ A photo of them to appear in Santa’s ‘Big Book’

There are several versions to choose from, but the free video is fantastic and isn’t any less impressive or filled with adverts.


Yule Play

If you’re looking for a festive soundtrack for decorating the tree, eating your Christmas dinner or opening your stockings, look no further. This fun and safe child-friendly playlist has everything to keep you and the little one happy.

You can search for your favourite festive hits on Yule Play by selecting Artist, Songs, Genre or Playlists from the left hand side of the Screen. Yule Play isn’t only available at Christmas, you can listen all year-round!



Netmums is an incredibly popular website and has hours of ideas of things for you and your family to play, make and discover! They have some festive articles running at the moment such as:
