NORTH POLE — Santa Claus is stepping up his communication game and sending text messages all through December, leading up to Christmas Day.

“I wanted to take people inside my process this year, show them how I prepare for my biggest night and spread Christmas cheer,” said Claus. 

People who sign up can expect to receive photos, jokes and surprises – all sent by the man in read himself. Each reminder is intended to help make the holiday season exciting for children, seniors and adults.

“Mrs. Claus and I have been getting better and better at texting,” Claus told FOX44. “The elves have been teaching us. We can even send emojis and GIFs now!”

Starting Dec. 1, Santa will text approximately once every five days, then once a day in the week leading up to Christmas. To receive texts from Claus, visit Santa Wants to Text You This Christmas.
