The last time I truly believed in Santa, the internet hadn’t really taken off yet. And as I’ve gotten older, I’ve been curious to see how the internet would impact children’s belief in that jolly man from the North Pole, so I took some time to look for Santa on the internet.
In my research, I discovered 3 digital ways to help me believe in Santa again.
1. Like Santa on Facebook
On Facebook you can find a couple of different pages for Santa Claus (here and here), where he shares updates and pictures of the progress he and his elves are making.
2. Follow Santa on Twitter
You can find him on Twitter too! This is actually the Twitter profile for a company where you can get personalized letters from Santa delivered to your children and loved ones. He’s got quite a following. Even Search Mojo’s own Sarah Wyland follows him!
3. Track Santa on Christmas Eve
Lastly, there are also a few different Santa Trackers, namely, the Norad Santa Tracker, and the Google Santa Tracker. On these websites, you can learn about life at the North Pole, read about Christmas traditions across the globe, and play games until Christmas. On Christmas Eve, these websites track Santa’s journey around the world as he delivers presents to all the good little boys and girls. Now if only we could get the reindeer to live tweet their Christmas Eve journey…
But maybe Santa just isn’t your thing. How else has the digital world helped you get into the holiday spirit? Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go play some Santa-themed mini-games.
