Santa Tech: Digital Wish Lists to Santa’s Inbox
Technology has put a twist to the Holidays. The site www.EmailSanta.com allows more than 1 million kids to email Santa letters with their wish lists. Plus, guess what? Santa actually writes back with a customized letter! The site also allows kids to watch Santa checking out his map via a 24/7 Webcam and can be followed on the Twitter account. On the night before Christmas, kids can see in what part of the world Santa is delivering gifts at by looking at the live delivery world map.
Kids go crazy with this site, during the Pre-Thanksgiving season, it received a letter every 30 seconds and the number of letters increases as it gets closer to Christmas day. The site has received a number of wish lists through PowerPoints presentations, videos of children, digital photos, and lists from Target’s gift registry. Kids don’t always send letters with wish lists, sometimes they just confess their problems to Santa, hoping he will solve their problems. These kids wait anxiously for Santa’s response letter, hoping he will respond with words of ease and that is exactly what the site does.
This site is perfect for today’s tech savvy kids. What tech advancement do you think is next for Santa’s digital world?
