You just know emailSanta's sleigh-cam is going to capture hijinx, mishaps and Christmas magic.

Children's Christmas wishes are rolling into the North Pole. The Santa website emailSanta.com receives letters from children every day of the year. On Christmas Eve those emails to Santa peak at 10 per second. But piquing kids' interest this year is Donald Trump.
"The magic of Christmas and the Internet work very well together," explains emailSanta.com's Alan Kerr. "So, answering thousands of emails between cookie breaks is nothing."
On Christmas Eve, the emailSanta website transforms into the "Santa Snooper". Children can watch specially created videos of Santa and live reindeer. "Santa's Christmas Eve flight is pretty special. You just know emailSanta's sleigh-cam is going to capture hijinx, mishaps and Christmas magic" chuckles Kerr. "Part of the fun is reading the 'live' texting between Santa and Elf Control." Parents can also capture a photo of that same Santa delivering presents in their home for 'proof' about Santa.
While a clock counts down Christmas' arrival to their home, children can send last-minute emails and Naughty List appeals. One year, Christian, 7, of Colchester, England, wanted to know: "Mommy and Daddy say I have not been very good these past few days. How bad can I be before I lose my presents?"
A very worried ten year-old, Austin, from Middleburg, Virginia wrote, "Dear Santa, I have been a good boy this year but I have had quarrels and even fights with my brother and I'm going to try and be better about stopping a fight instead of adding to it. I hope you get my message because I am e-mailing you at seven o'clock on Christmas eve."
So far this year though, the hot topic of children's Christmas letters is Donald Trump. "I haven't seen as many emails on a particular subject since 9/11," confides Kerr. "The emails range from the hilarious to the, well, scary."
Julian, 7, who wrote that he is from Amiraca, wants Trump to "get peached". Julian's Mom then wrote, "Looking at Donald Trump, I think he already has been peached."
For Amanda, 8, from Rochester, "Trump acts worse than my 2 year old brother when he doesn't get his way. Maybe he needs his bum changed too?"
Nicolas from Kearny helpfully suggested, "bob The Builder could help trump build wall."
To write Santa at emailSanta.com, children complete a simple fill-in-the-blank letter and hit send. The site asks for as little information as possible. Personally identifiable information like last names, phone numbers, street and email addresses are not required. Children are also reminded to check with an adult before sending any information over the Internet. "The recent hacking of Santa websites in Russia and elsewhere highlights the importance of teaching our children about on- and off-line safety and privacy", says Kerr, the father of two children in Calgary, Canada.
Mid-November in Russia, the details of thousands of kids' letters to Grandfather Frost, the Russian Santa Claus, were found online. According to the Russian telecom watchdog, Roskomnadzor, the first and last names, ages, home addresses and telephone numbers of children who had submitted their letters were published. Allegedly, some of the 55 Santa websites in question are registered outside of Russia, in places such as Panama, Australia and the U.S.
