Forget Stamps, You Can Reach Santa Claus By Phone
No stamps, no problem. It turns out that a good old fashioned pencil isn't the only way to get a hold of Santa Claus anymore. Now, kids can reach the big guy in the North Pole by phone!
That's right, Kris Kringle has a direct line: (951) 262-3062.
Obviously this time of year keeps Santa busy in his workshop, so don't be shocked when it goes right to voicemail. Those toys don't make themselves you know!
Unsurprisingly, callers to Santa's personal line are are greeted by a requisite ho, ho, ho! "Merry Christmas!" he continues. "This is Santa Claus and you have reached my personal hotline." He goes on to explain that he's been busy making toys to deliver on Christmas morning. Santa then reminds children that their parents love them very much, and tells then that it's important to listen to them. "When you hear the tone, leave me your Christmas wish list and holiday cheer," he concludes.
The hotline is sponsored by FreeConferenceCall.com, which launched it back in 2009 as a way to promote their services. "The way that children connect with Santa is evolving and we are excited to help connect today's next generation of communicators to Santa over the phone," the company's president, Dave Erickson, said in a statement.
More traditional youngsters will be thrilled to know that you can still reach the North Pole via U.S. Postal Service, just make sure to get those lists in the mail by December 15th if you want to receive a response!
