Contact Santa Claus this Christmas using Internet, texting, Twitter, iPhone
Santa Claus is using the latest technology to communicate with young and old alike in 2010. With Christmas just a couple of days away, Santa can be contacted using the latest high-tech tools like computers and iPhones.
Thus, texting Santa Claus is now a viable option. A service at the site called Text Santa allows children to receive three personalized text messages from Santa. Parents must sign the kids up and the messages start at $3.99. The date and time the messages will be sent can be chosen. One dollar from each transaction will be used to support the March of Dimes.
A free service, Portable North Pole, lets users create a personalized video message from Santa to the person of their choice. A questionnaire about the receiver is filled out and a photo can be submitted with it as well. The information is used to create a personal video message from Santa, as well as a map with the route Santa will take to the recipients home to deliver Christmas presents.
NORAD has provided the world with Santa’s location every year, including 2010, as he travels from the North Pole to distribute Christmas gifts. This year NORAD Santa is tweeting updates about his location, as well.

iPhone now has an application called Santa Message 2U, that lets the user record a personalized message. The unique app then turns the user’s voice into the voice of Santa so a message from St. Nick can be sent to friends, family, etc. The application is a steal at $1.99 in the iPhone app store.
Finally, Christmas Dialer provides a phone call from Santa to whatever phone number the user enters. There are also three different messages that St. Nick will deliver to the recipient that can be chosen on the site.
