How did you use to send Father Christmas your wish list? When I was a child, we used to write letters and post them. Apparently the postmen used to get quite a lot of junk mail around this time – did they use to throw the letters in the bin? No idea, I guess.
So it was surprising to hear about Father Christmas’ Apps. Well I never, I said to myself. Of course, if your children are grown up you have probably missed this craze too. I read up about them, looked for them on my Apps and found what it is considered the best App “A call from Santa”. The App has a jovial looking Father Christmas as an icon and feels like Christmas.
Well, it did not stop there though, did it?
No, my curiosity got the better of me, I am afraid and – yes, you guessed it – I downloaded the App. Not only that, I actually started sending messages to Santa Claus and rang his number to hear his voicemail.
Another feature says ‘Use it all around to encourage good behaviour’. Well, now I know!
Feeling rather humble by the experience, I will not share the exchange of texts – they will remain between me and Santa Claus.
I guess that we never get rid of the voice of our inner child….
