How to Text Santa: Add Some Magic to Your Socially Distanced Christmas

Writing letters to Santa has always been a wonderful Christmas tradition for children all over the world. However, technology has evolved and Santa does try to keep up with the times, so why not text him, too?

We started texting Santa last year when my boys started to feel a bit doubtful of his existence. My sister, who is a Santa super-fan, agreed to help. Here's how it went down:

  • Then I saved the number as "Santa Claus" on my phone, complete with display picture and holiday notification sounds.

Now whenever my sons text Santa, they get to have a fun, memorable conversation with their auntie.

Many of us will not be able to spend the holidays with our loved ones this year. This is a fun way to still get relatives involved in the Christmas magic.
