Santa Sends Txt Msgs!

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus -- and he just sent you a text message to prove it.

Santa using cellphone

Ronda Kaysen: That's right -- Santa got an iPhone, and now he responds to those pleading holiday dispatches by text. It's a pretty convenient thing, and it'll only set you back about $4.

A new company cropped up last holiday season called, allowing parents or family members to have a personalized text message from Santa sent to their Santa-loving kids. When you register a child, the company will donate $1 to March of Dimes. If you're feeling rather literary, you can write the message yourself, or, if you trust the bearded bearer of gifts, you can have him compose the missive.

Your kid doesn't have his own cell phone? No worries -- just send the texts to the kid's mom or dad, suggests Text Santa. And why not? There aren't that many options for connecting with the jolly man from the North Pole.

It was only a matter of time before someone came up with an idea as totally ridiculous as this one. A text message from Santa? What's it going to say? "Der pal, mrry xmas, ur getN gud loot dis yr"?

I can only imagine the questions about Santa that such a text will spawn: "Does Santa have a cell phone? How did he get Mom's number? Does he have a BlackBerry or an iPhone? Does he IM?" And, most importantly: "Is he on Facebook?"

Boy, do I miss the days of chocolate-chip cookies and a glass of milk. That seemed so much more reasonable.

I tried last year and I absoultly loved it! I have never seen my children so exicted. They liked it so much I decided to do it again this year. I recommend this service to everyone for Christmas!

May i have a bit of advice? I think you have had something great over here. However what if you also offered a few references to a site that backs up what youre you said? Or simply you can give us some extra information to look at, something might associate just what you’re mentioning, something tangible?
