3 Easy Ways to Talk to Santa


Cary, NC — Did you know that it’s easy to get in touch with Santa from right here in Cary?

3 Easy Ways to Talk to Santa

It’s only the first week of December, but we’ve already started receiving word of multiple ways children in Cary, Morrisville and around the country can contact Santa this holiday season. It turns out that, in 2015, letters to Santa are no longer the only way to contact the big guy. We found out that you can call Santa and even text him your Christmas wish list – here’s how.

Send a Letter

One of the oldest Christmas traditions is mailing a letter to Santa, and the Town of Cary makes it easy. Kids can drop off their letters to Santa in a special mailbox on Town Hall Campus before December 12, 2015 to hear back from him before Christmas.

Just make sure you child’s name and return address are included on the letter.

Text Santa

According to ZipWhip, a Seattle-based text messaging provider, a record low number of letters were sent to Santa in 2014. Since more and more kids are using more instant communication methods like texting and email now, ZipWhip created a phone number – 844-YO-SANTA – so that parents and their children can text Santa their Christmas lists.

Upon texting Santa, children will receive an immediate confirmation text with a link to a short video containing a direct message from Santa.

Ask Santa to Call You

Thanks to, kids everywhere can get instantaneous phone calls from Santa or one of his elves. Calls from the North Pole are made right after they are requested, and parents or friends can pick which message they’d like their kids to receive.

For Morrisville residents only:

According to Morrisville’s Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department, Santa contacted them to let them know that he and Mrs. Claus will be calling Morrisville children ages 3-8 during the Christmas season. All calls will be made on December 9, 2015 from 6-8 pm.

All parents have to do is fill out an online form by December 4, 2015 to let Santa know that their child wants a call. If children don’t answer the call, a message will be left on the answering machine. No make-up calls will be made. This program is free to Morrisville residents. Since the calls will be personalized for each child, parents will be asked to fill out what “good” things their child did, what Santa can encourage them to work on and what they want for Christmas.
