It would be wrong of me to suggest that you should stop taking your kids to see Santa at the CherryVale Mall, just so they can give the big guy their Christmas wish list and take that annual Christmas card photo. Every child deserves to meet Santa.

However, if the thought of getting all the munchkins dressed and bundled up, out the door and to a crowded shopping mall so you can stand in line forever, while the kids sweat profusely and complain, gets your blood pressure to sky rocket, then maybe these other ways to get in touch with Santa will work much better for you. The best part is, you don't have to leave the house.

    Write Him a Letter

    Traditionally, the best way to reach Santa is to send him a sweet, handwritten letter. I hear they keep every letter in a giant scrapbook in Santa's workshop. Write to Mr. and Mrs. Claus at 325 South Santa Clause Lane, North Pole, Alaska 99705.

    Call Him

    Santa knows when that hotline bling, it can only mean one thing- that your little ones are on the phone and can't wait to tell him what they want stuffed in their stockings this year. Unfortunately, Santa is really busy this time of year so they'll have to leave him a voicemail but they will get a nice reminder from Santa to be a good little boy or girl. Santa's number is 951-262-3062.
