Your kids or grandchildren are probably already super excited about Christmas. It was always my favorite holiday when I was a child. There wasn't anything more thrilling than running downstairs first thing Christmas morning to see if Santa Claus had paid a visit.
If you know someone who can't wait for Santa to visit, there are ways to reach him ahead of time.
That's right, there are apps that will put your loved one in contact with Santa Claus himself. Here are a few apps that will help bring out that Christmas spirit.
1. A Call From Santa!
What could be more exciting for a child than getting a phone call from Santa? I can't think of anything.
A Call From Santa for iOS gives you the chance to amaze your children by requesting a free personalized phone call from St. Nick himself. Santa can mention your child's name, age and interests during the call if you'd like. You can receive unlimited calls for free.
Your children can also call Santa and leave him a voicemail, or send Santa Claus a text message. Santa will reply instantly.

Wouldn't it be great knowing what your children or grandchildren want for Christmas without having to ask them directly?
