Digital Santa: Sites & Apps for Kids to Connect with St. Nick

Parents know the drill. Every year around this time, they start getting the tough Santa questions, like “How does Santa fit through the chimney?” or “Why does Santa brings (insert other child's name) more toys than me?”

Ask Santa

Now there’s a place to send your kids for answers straight from the source: a free “Ask Santa” web site lets children submit any question they have for St. Nick online and get an answer directly back from the North Pole for free.

Hosted by Pearl.com, which connects people with professionals for expert advice and information in any category, the Ask Santa site operates through December 24th and donates $1 for every question submitted to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.

But Ask Santa isn't the only site where kids can get all their "Santa" fix. Here are a few other sites and apps

  •  EmailSanta.com – Site to email your Christmas wish list to the North Pole and to check the “naughty or nice” list. Also, has a live “Santa webcam” to see what Santa and the elves are up to in the North Pole.
  •  iCaughtSanta – App in which you can upload a pic of your living room and the app inserts a photo of Santa there so you can “prove” he was there!
  • Video Calls with Santa – app to do a video call with “Santa” to tell him when your kid is naughty or nice.
  •  NORAD Tracks Santa: North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has been running a fun site to track Santa on Christmas Eve since 1955. They have a creative story about how they track Santa on the site…and this year there are apps (iOS, Android).
  •  SaintNick.org: Read about Christmas traditions around the world, send “SnowGrams” to friends, find holiday recipes from Santa and Rudolph, send a letter to Santa.
  •  SantasGoodList.org: Chat with one of Santa’s elves to see if you’re on the good list or naughty list.
  •  SantaClauseTalks: A site that lets you “chat” online with Santa and play holiday games
