He's making his list and checking it twice. But, in the digital era there is more than one way to contact Old Saint Nick. From traditional letter writing to fun apps to phone calls, here are some of our favorite ways to track jolly Santa Claus this year.

Letters to Santa: Another way to communicate with Santa is to write him a letter. We are loving the sweet letters from Minted. The letters include a fill-in option where your kids can write in their name, indicate if there were naughty or nice, and of course, request what they want this year.

Google Santa Tracker

Track Santa: Google just launched their cool Santa’s Village which will lead up to their annual Santa Tracker on Dec. 24. Each day throughout December, new games and scenes will become available in the Village. This year, you’ll find an edu touch — new geography games let you explore local holiday traditions, while a new coding project teaches basic JavaScript as you help Santa and the reindeer navigate the map. Learn how to say “Santa” in different languages, and connect with nonprofits around the world. Fan favorites are making a return this year — you can send a call from Santa to your friends and family, display Santa’s journey on the TV screen with Chromecast, and play gumdrop and reindeer racing games. You’ll be able to play each game on desktop, mobile web, or on the Santa Tracker Android app. On December 24th, millions of kids and adults will have the chance to see Santa’s reindeers guide him across the globe as he delivers presents with Google’s Santa Tracker.

Calls to Santa: Vonage will once again enable customers to dial 1-700-CALL-SANTA (1-700-225-5726) from a Vonage home phone or the Vonage Extensions App to hear a message from Kris Kringle himself. Now through Christmas Eve, by dialing this number, customers can connect directly to a holiday greeting from Santa and kids will have the opportunity to leave a message about what they'd like to see under the tree. Taking the guessing game out of gift giving, Vonage will send the recorded message to Vonage account holders via email so they will know exactly what their loved ones wished for this year. The audio attachment can be forwarded to other family members and friends, or even set aside as a keepsake. And you can still call Santa even if you are not a Vonage customer. Simply visit www.vonage.com/northpole and follow the instructions.

On Christmas Eve, callers will be able to track Santa's whereabouts as he delivers presents around the world. Starting at 5 p.m. ET on December 24, Vonage customers can dial 1-700-CALL-SANTA to hear where Santa and his reindeer have been and where they are headed next!
