Hi-tech kids e-mail wish lists to Santa

Santa has turned technology savvy this Christmas as children favour e-mails over traditional letters, it emerged today.

Father Christmas is now receiving an e-mail a minute from boys and girls in Ireland and around the world containing their Christmas present lists at the website www.emailsanta.ie.

But it is not only children that are e-mailing Santa Claus with one in 20 e-mails from a lonely adult seeking a boyfriend or girlfriend this Christmas.

Some of the top Christmas items submitted by adults veer towards more practical items with cars, houses and jobs on their wish lists.

Others were looking for a Christmas miracle, seeking a magic ointment for arthritis, a boyfriend wrapped in a red bow, winning lotto numbers, two front teeth, sunshine and a pain free back.

The most popular requests from children include Bratz dolls, iPods, bicycles, Playstations, an Xbox 360, a dolls house, Yu-Gi-Oh cards, books and a Barbie.

The tradition of leaving food out for Santa also looked set to continue, with many of the e-mails from children promising biscuits, carrots, milk and a glass of stout.

Each of the Christmas lists submitted to the eircom site, which was launched last week, receives a personalised e-mail from Santa and a short video clip in return.
