Writing a letter to Santa Claus is a time-honored tradition for kids this time of year.

But in this day and age of technology, pen-and-paper isn’t the only way for those on the Nice List to get in touch with jolly old Saint Nick: Kids can call Santa Claus on the phone via the Santa hotline!

Will children calling the Santa Hotline actually talk to a person?
No, calling Santa’s phone number will lead you to a voicemail. After all, Santa is super busy finalizing the Naughty and Nice lists this time of year and overseeing the work of all the elves in his workshop!
When you call Santa’s direct line, children will hear his jolly laugh as he greets them with a “Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas! This is Santa Claus and you have reached my personal hotline.”
St. Nick’s outgoing message reminds children that their parents love them, and how important is to listen to their parents and be good boys and girls. As the recording comes to an end, Santa invites the children to leave him a message about what they would like to see under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning. “When you hear the tone, please leave me your Christmas gift wishes and holiday cheer,” he says. “And remember kids, I know who’s been naughty or nice. Merry Christmas and I’ll see you soon!”

Is it safe for my child to leave a voicemail message for Santa?
You can use a landline or mobile line to dial the Santa Hotline, but there’s a bonus if you make the call with a cellphone. After your child leaves their message for Santa, you will get a text message back with a phone number that you can later dial to access their wish list! How helpful is that to send off to grandparents and aunts and uncles that still need to do Christmas shopping for your kid?
