Santa is online and checking his email regularly throughout the day. Here are some options for writing an email to him:

  • 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. You also can view Santa's message right away on the website.
  • Northpole.com: You and your kids will find all kinds of fun things to do here, in addition to sending an email to Santa: Play games, read stories, or try out Christmas karaoke. You must sign up for a free account (either a child or 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 sends free, personalized video letters for all ages and relationships, with charming touches that make the recipient wonder how Santa knows what he knows. For example, the video letter might mention toys on a kid's wish list, whether the child has been doing well in school (or perhaps not so well), and if they help with chores or are nice to their siblings. You can make as many videos as you want, for as many people as you wish.

Make a Phone Call to Santa's Hotline

If someone in your house wants to call Santa on the phone, you can arrange a personal phone call to the big guy at Santa's Hotline at FreeConference.com. Your child can call Santa's phone number and leave a message.
