Send a Call from Santa with Google Voice

The modern technological age we live in has yet again enabled us to convince our children they should behave around Christmas time. Google Voice now lets you call Santa and leave a message. You can also have Santa call your little boy or girl, or even a grown-up if you wish.

Go to www.sendacallfromsanta.com to get started. You answer some basic questions, and off it goes. You can choose to send a phone call or an email from Santa. It is pretty straightforward, and effective. My boys were very happy to get a call from Santa. After the video email message (see post here) and now a phone call, they are thoroughly convinced that Santa has kept up with modern technology.

Your kids can also leave their own message on Santa’s voicemail via Google Voice. Call toll-free at (855) 34-SANTA. Your child will get to hear Santa’s greeting and then can leave a message.

Santa’s messages have been very helpful this year. Hopefully your kids will enjoy hearing from Santa as much as mine did.

    It will only speak common white people names, it won’t even try to pronounce ethnic names. Not even the name “Muhammad”, which is apparently one of the most popular names in the world. It will just skip the name. I’m not sure how I feel about a service that discriminates like that…

      It does seem a little odd that it would exclude names. I don’t think it is a problem of discrimination, though. It is likely that the software can’t read the names as easily and they either chose to not offend people by mispronouncing the name or the software simply failed. I’ll play with it some today and see if I can find a different outcome.
