Santa is on the web, and he checks his email regularly throughout the day. Here are some options for writing an email letter to Santa:

  • Email Santa: This interactive site lets you or your child choose a stamp and send Santa a digital letter. When you're done, you'll receive an immediate email reply, or you can view Santa's message right away on the website.
  • Northpole.com: There are all kinds of fun things to do here, in addition to sending an email to Santa. You can play games, read stories, or try out Christmas karaoke. You need to sign up for a free account (either a child account or a parent account) before you can write a letter to Santa or send postcards from the site.

Send a Video Letter From Santa

Portable North Pole website

Portable North Pole offers free, personalized video letters for all ages and relationships, with charming touches that make the recipient wonder how Santa knows what he knows. The video letter may mention special toys that are on a kid's wish list, whether the child has been doing well in school (or perhaps not so well), and whether they help out with chores or are nice to their siblings. You can make as many videos as you want, for as many people as you want.

Make a Phone Call to Santa's Hotline

Santa Claus phone number

If you have someone in your house who wants to call Santa on the phone, arrange a personal phone call to the big guy at Santa's Hotline. Have your child call Santa's phone number and wait for him to answer. Your child can then leave a message for Santa. When the call is placed from a mobile phone, Santa sends a text message of the call.

The Santa Claus phone number for English speakers in the United States is +1 (605) 313-4000. However, since multiple languages and countries are supported, visit the website to view the list of Santa Claus phone numbers and find the right one for where you live.

If you'd like to write the whole message from Santa and then have him call your child, try ChristmasDialer.com. Another way to have a call with Santa is to use Santa's Magic Phone Call & Text app.

Chat With Santa Online


If your children are old enough to type, they can enjoy chatting with Santa at the Santa Chats website. Just type a greeting or question into the text box, and Santa responds immediately. Although the chat responses are automated, and some responses are more polished than others, chatting with Santa can be amusing for your children.
