Web Smart Santa: Connecting With Santa Online
If you waited too long to send Santa your list the old-school snail mail way, or if typing out your wishes to the jolly old elf online are more your style — you are in luck! Everyone’s favorite bearded friend is very accessible online for the more tech-inclined youngsters.
— Portable North Pole. This site lets you sign up for a free video message you can personalize with a name and pictures: the video shows Santa framing a picture of the beloved family pet or zooming in on a shot of your house.
— NORAD Santa. This one is a classic. Use the powers of the North American Aerospace Defense Command to track Santa as he makes his way across the globe. The best part: an app you can download to your phone and slide across the Christmas dinner table to entertain excited kiddos.
— Google Santa Tracker. Was Santa as upset about losing Google Maps on his iPhone as everyone else was? Not to worry, Google will be tracking Santa come Christmas Eve — and they promise to show some of the technology in that old sleigh. Before the big night, though, you can compose a note to Santa by answering some questions. Then, you can send the note via phone or e-mail to your lucky kid!
