Of course, if you’re still old fashioned and prefer the good old phone and email methods, people can email and call Santa trackers at 1-877-Hi-NORAD from within the US or (719) 556-5211 overseas or send him a letter at  They’re open from 4:30 a.m. EST until 5:00am EST. No pen and paper options mentioned sadly.
