Do you know a certain someone who would love to get a phone call from Santa Claus? Turns out you can help make that happen. The Google Voice folks have set up a website that lets you give The Big Guy all the info to arrange a personalized call to your son, daughter, co-worker, or whoever.
All you need to do is to point your web browser at SendACallFromSanta.com and start filling in the information. You'll let Santa know who you are and what your relationship is to the recipient (parent, friend), as well as a little about about them: where they live, what they're looking for under the tree, that sort of thing. When you've given Santa all he needs to know, press the magic button, and he'll be in touch with the recipient. You can choose for Santa to make a phone call or to send his greetings via email.
Send A Call From Santa is a free service. With the price that low, you should know that there is a brief commercial at the end of the message, so if you're sending a message to a little one, it probably makes sense for you to listen in and maybe distract them when the pitch comes.
