Web Smart Santa: Connecting With Santa Online

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

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!
