Dear Santa, did you get my tweet
of presents I would think are sweet?
And what about my Facebook post
of toys and stuff I want the most?

Dear Santa, did you read my blog?
That’s where I keep a running log
of all the times that I’ve been good
and doing things I know I should.

I hope you saw my Instagram,
my email wasn’t flagged as spam,
you’ve seen my YouTube channel too
and all my texts have made it through.

Wait, does the North Pole even get
computers and the Internet?
I hope it does. I mean, it better,
or I might have to write a letter.

About This Poem

These days, with the Internet and all of the electronics we have access too, it seems kind of slow and old-fashioned to write a letter to Santa on a piece of paper, put it in an envelope, put a stamp on it, and mail it to him at the North Pole. Surely there must be an easier way. In fact, there are now services that let you send Santa an email and get a reply back from him.

But what if you posted your Christmas list on a website, or sent it by social media like Facebook or Twitter. Would he even get it? I’m not really sure so, to be on the safe side, it’s best to send him your letters the old-fashioned way, by regular “snail mail.”
