When we started SantaSearch in 1996,
our goal was to touch the heart of just one child, spread some Christmas cheer and truly
make a difference. Since then, our many visitors (into the millions now) have and continue
to send us a staggering amount of positive feedback,
but it's still nice to see the Internet community take notice of our efforts. We are
deeply honored that our contributions to children, parents and the Internet have been
received so widely.
Our greatest rewards and best kept secrets will always be the children and families
we've been able to help in the 'real world'. Whether it's putting a smile on a face
or helping needy children, parents and families, it's truly an honor to be able
to make a difference!
Thank you on behalf of the SantaSearch Team!
||SantaSearch is a non-commercial, not-for-profit, labor of love dedicated
to touching the hearts of children big and small. Your suggestions and comments are
very important to us, please let us
know what you think, we love hearing from you!
Below is a sample of
the accolades and kind comments sent to us from visitors like yourself. Thank You!
|My son and I LOVED this site. We sang and sang the
songs together - just like the olden days when families gathered around the piano. All we
needed was a crackling fireplace. We can't wait until next Christmas. Thanks for a great
|Both of my children have sent mail to Santa from this site. I was shocked
at the response. VERY PLEASANTLY SHOCKED! The letter that was sent in reply to my children
was not just a simple auto responder, but an actual reply from an actual person. It was
very touching. That is what the meaning of Christmas really is. People taking the time to
actually care. From the bottom of my heart...Thank You for the extra effort.....The
reaction from both my 4 year old and the rest of the family to the personal response was
refreshing....Thank You Again! and Merry Christmas!
|Now that the holiday season is winding down my wife and
I want to take the opportunity to commend your team for a wonderful site. The letter Santa
wrote back to my 7 year old daughter was incredible -- so very realistic, she just beamed
as we all read it -- reminded my wife and I that "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa
Claus." Thank you again, and we are forever supporters of this Santa Site.
|I am writing you to thank you for answering all of the Santa letters from
my class. The kids really enjoyed writing their letter to Santa, but the best part was
getting the response. They couldn't believe Santa really wrote them back. It was a very
exciting day for us. We are going to hang every letter in the hall. We have told everyone
we know to e-mail you. Thank you for bringing so much joy to my class. I love the fact
that you stress the most important thing about Christmas isn't the presents under the
tree. Thank you very much from all of us!
|Good Morning All,
I just wanted to tell you that I
think your site is one of the best, if not THE best Christmas sites on the net. *smiling
big time here* I found it last night, and just in time too I might add. My grandson is
here for the day, and he's enjoying it beyond words. I've printed out some of your
coloring projects, and we've sung along with your songs. *great* I'd like to take this
opportunity to wish ALL of you a most joyous season, and keep up the good work. Now we are
off to see what else we can get into......... *laffin*

|Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback. Just tuned into the
site at the suggestion of friend and am well pleased. I look forward to reading more. Very
enjoyable. I like the variety and true meaning of Christmas stories, especially. Thanks
again and keep up the good work.
|Thanks for hours of enjoyment this holiday season.
Downloaded some graphics and cut and pasted lyrics to make song books for personal use --
friends and relatives enjoyed the singalong. My husband and I enjoyed singing along with
your great music while we were working. Have a Happy Holiday!
|We are the grandparents of 5 grandbabies, your thoughtfulness in your
letters back to them is greatfully appreciated. We may never know you, but God bless you
for your time and great effort. We trust you have as great a Christmas as you have given
our babies. God Bless, Take Care, Grandma and Grandpa.
|I have just spent the last hour enjoying your web site
with my two children. They think this site is great. I am sorry I didn't find it sooner.
The graphics and content are amazing. I am very impressed. You should take great pride in
yourselves for producing such a high quality family site. Merry Christmas!
|Thank you for all your hard work on this sight. My son loves all the
songs, and his e-mail was replied to quickly. Again thanks for all the hard work in
keeping Santa alive to kids of all ages.
|I received the letter today. Thanks for your prompt
response. I'm really impressed with the letters and the personal touch each one has. This
is definitely a site that I have bookmarked and passed onto friends. In fact, we were at
an event the other day and there was a Santa. I asked my boys if they wanted to go talk to
Santa and they said "Why? We already e-mailed Santa and he wrote us back so we know
he knows what we want. Why do we need to talk to him again?" My practical boys!
Thanks again for your prompt reply. A very merry Christmas to you!!
|You are a blessing. Now I have the words for my family and friends to
sing when we gather together on Christmas Eve. Singing together is such joy! Thanks for
your great addition together with cute graphics. Happy Holidays to everyone who had a hand
in your site!
|My Name is Peter and I have several Grand Children and
on Christmas day I will been connecting again to this Internet. I am highly delighted to
have connected to this by chance and I wish to highly congratulate you for such a
magnificent programme as this one.
|What a wonderful site for children of all ages!!!! I'm 51 with three
children from ages 18 thru l4 and we all are contacting your site and telling friends
about it. I LOVE THE SONG SHEETS! May God Bless you for your special gift to all who use
your site, today it may my very very bad day alot brighter. Thanks again for lifting our
spirits. Merry Christmas to all of you and yours!
|WONDERFUL!!! I haven't really been in a great mood
lately; I came upon your website and enjoyed hours of Christmas songs. I had a sing-a-long
all by myself. I found songs that are very special to me. Thank you. You have given me a
great Christmas gift that I will share with others :)
|I would like to take a minute to let you know what a wonderful site you
have. The e-mail that our girls received from Santa was wonderful they were both very
excited. We have tried a couple of Santa sites on the web but your site tops all others.
Our daughters enjoyed the personalization of the letter. Several times they have asked to
come back to your site to listen and sing the Christmas songs. Keep up the good work we
are letting all of our friends and family know of your site. Thanks!
|WOW!!!!! I can't tell you how WONDERFUL your site
is!!!! My son and I found it while searching the web for lyrics for Christmas carols and
what a FIND!! My son Aaron got to e-mail Santa and let me tell you when he got Santa's
reply his whole face lit up!!! Thank you so much for making this a wonderful Christmas
experience and a new tradition for our family! With much thanks and have a wonderful
|You have one of the "BEST" sites regarding a theme (Christmas)
that I have ever come across. Excellent layout, graphics and sounds. I hope you keep this
page going forever as I have it marked as my site to visit for "Christmas
Stuff". Thank you for providing a truly useful website.
|What a wonderful site. You have everything I needed to
organize a great Christmas party, and more. Thanks for all your hard work. You have one of
the best sites I have ever seen. I'll pass it on to my friends an coworkers. Merry
|Hello, I am the father of Samantha and Maggie who recently wrote to you.
Thank You!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They really enjoyed writing the letter and getting the response.
It showed that you read their letters. Too much of this world is based on auto-response,
thank you for being real.
|Thank you so much. Your letter is something that will
have a very special place in Madeline's baby book!! I knew it would be neat but I had no
idea it would be so sentimental and written "just for her"!! Thank you again.
You made my day.
|I just wanted to drop you "all" a note to say
"thank-you" for your wonderful work... This site is the BEST Santa site I've
been to .. and the letters from Santa are WONDERFUL!!! I have 3 boys and each letter was
different.. so they really believe!!! even got my 10 year old having some doubts.. LOL...
Bravo!!!!! I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas!!!
|Here I have been going on my daily tasks, wanting to
love Christmas, wanting to find my Christmas heart this year. I found it in such an
"unlikely" place. On the internet. While wandering the web for Christmas lyrics
for my Girl Scout troop (we are going caroling tonight), I came across your website. Even
after I finished finding the words I was looking for - I came back to read the stories and
poems. There are many reasons why Christmas is special to me, and the beautiful stories
you shared here reminded me of what those reasons are.
I found my Christmas spirit. I
will share the stories with my family and those of the girls I lead tonight. Thank you
ever so much.
|Thank you so much for this wonderful service you provide. My son was
truly touched by the response he received. It was personal and written just to him. Merry
Christmas to you all.
|THANK YOU for all the people and efforts put into this
site. My family has enjoyed this site together for many, many hours and there's no more
running all over the web looking for something spirited with splendor. Happy holiday
season, folks, and thanks again!
|This site is great. I am a college student who is finding getting into
the spirit very difficult. I am so swamped with work that it doesn't even seem like
Christmastime! It is about 2:30 in the am right now and finding this site was a God send.
I feel so refreshed and the spirit of Christmas has found me! So, I want to thank you very
|As a parent - and a Canadian parent who is very proud
of being Canadian! - I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful site, which my
five-year-old daughter and I discovered this evening. Katie's letter is already on its way
to Santa but she also enjoyed the other things to do, and we actually had quite a
discussion on the relative merits of the Christmas carols! I'm so glad to see a site like
this, designed purely for the purpose of pleasing children around the world, and spreading
a little more of the Christmas magic. Thanks again!
|I would like to take the time to comment and compliment everyone who
worked on this web site. I have a 5 year old son and he and I have spent hours just
enjoying the music and stories. I am full time working mother and I'll admit the evenings
can be hectic and go by very quickly; however, it makes my heart melt when my son sits on
my lap and we sing and laugh together. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share
all of your wonderful work and enjoy it with my son. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to
all of you!
|Your letter writing with a very personal touch will
make a lot of children very happy this Christmas. I know that my son was thinking there
was no Santa, but, after reading your reply, I think he's convinced once again that you
are real. Thanks for your thoughtfulness.
A grateful parent.
|How wonderful this is, I just wanted to take this time to thank you for
all your hard work. As if there wasn't enough to do this time of the year, you have done
something to make all children happy! This is great, I just wanted you to know how
appreciative I am of all your hard work!! Have a Very Merry Christmas, and a great New
Year! From a Thankful Mother of 2.
|That was amazing. Truly amazing. Thank you so very very
much for your insight and being able to figure out that O'Malley was a cat that we had
lost - how do you do that?? You gave a much better response than my husband or I were able
to come up with - very comforting.. I'm now running about spreading news of your site to
everyone I know! Thank you, once again!
A Happy Mom
|Thank you so very much!!!!!!!! This is truly a wonderful site..... All
who are involved made a sick (flu) little girl very happy today. God bless you all. And I
hope this holiday season is wonderful for all of you, and your loved ones as well! Happy
Holidays! Peach, love and much happiness in the coming year!!!!!!!!
|Good Morning & seasons greetings. I stumbled upon
your page link today, Thank goodness for this.. I read several of your stories that are
posted.. I must tell you that I have looked at a lot of sights to read their Christmas
stories. I rate yours the best!!!!! Moving, inspirational, and some times sad.. Please
keep up the good work... My favorites were Golden Slippers & The Envelope... Amazingly
written! Thank you.
|Just a quick note to say that your site is wonderful!! Keep up the great
work!! This is the second year that my daughter has written to Santa and loves the
personal letter that he returns. Thanks for making Christmas special for us!!
|I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with
your Santa letters! Each one is personalized and different. I have encouraged all my
friends to send a letter to Santa Claus. And a note to Santa....... I know you must be
tired, but you are doing such a great job this year in writing all the letters not only to
the little kids, but to the adults too. We need more people like you in the world. Thanks
again. Have a great Holiday season!!
|Fabulous.....I saw it on TV and immediately checked it out can't wait to
show my 6 yr. old in the morning she will be thrilled with it too....thanx for making it
all non-profit. That's great.
|Just a short note to tell you what a wonderful site you
have. The letters to the children seemed so real it had me believing again!! We really
appreciate the work you've put into the letters. Thanks and Merry Christmas.
|"You were a God Send today. Last night my daughter who is 11 years old,
who is a sever emotional disabled child, visited Santa at our apt. complex party. The
Santa told her that the reindeer were outside, she went out there to pet them, and could
not find them. Then he told her that they were in the woods, so off she went, in the 15
degree weather and snow! I finally got her and she was traumatized because Santa had left
her without saying goodbye - or letting her pet the reindeer. We came home after driving
around for 45 minutes trying to find Santa, and I went online. She was able to write to
you, which helped, but then this morning when she read your letter, she knew you were
still the Santa she loves and the other one just had to be one of your elves. So
thank you Santa and Jingles with all my heart for helping my little girl.
|I just want to let you know that I think your site is
absolutely wonderful. My kids love this site. There is all kinds of things to do, and
places to go. Thank you very much for your wonderful site. One other thing, is there
anyway to download the snowflake that follows your mouse around the page? Please let me
know, everyone loves it. Thank-you!
|This is the BEST site ever! (for emailing a letter to Santa!) What a
great idea! Keep up the great work! All the kids LOVE the fact that they can write to
Santa at his own site. I've told all of my family and friends about this site and they all
love it too! Thank you thank you thank you for this wonderful site! Thank you all for your
hard work and all the time and care you put in your letters you send back to us all. God
Bless and have a Merry Christmas yourselves. May Santa be good to you all as well.
|My children recently wrote to Santa in sheer
excitement. This is one new way of writing to Santa, for us. When they received their
emails from Santa, you cannot imagine how they felt. Especially Kailey (9) and Alexandra
(7). You've given one more year to Kailey to believe in Santa. The kids at school keep
telling her that there is no Santa, and this website has done wonders for her in more ways
than I think you know. Your website is beautiful, because it is for kids, and if all kids
get as excited about receiving such a personal letter as mine have, you are truly doing
something good in this world. Thank you for helping my children continue to believe in the
spirit of Christmas. I hope you know what a good thing you're doing. Merry Christmas to
|I would like to say a great big thank you for making a lovely site and
for the e-mails that you have sent to my children, they are so individual and full of the
words kids need to hear. So a great big THANK YOU.
|Hi there, I'm a mom and was turned on to your site by
my dad and have since got my 7 yr. old involved. We love to read Santa's Journal everyday,
it sure brightens ours :) Thank all the elves for the great job and hope they have a very
Merry Christmas too. Thanks alot for the magic........
