Pull up the desk chairs, open up the search engines and zoom into the world of the Internet – Santa Claus is coming to your computer screen in full cyber color.

Many adults today use computers to search the "net." Well, kids too can get their search engines going, type in "Santa Claus" and find numerous sites to enjoy during the Christmas season.

Type letters to Santa and, yes, he will answer them via e-mail or immediately on your screen. The choice is yours.

There are games and art – you can draw your holiday pictures and send them to be on Santa’s photo gallery posted on the page. There’s also a place to listen to stories, such as "’Twas the Night Before Christmas," read by Santa himself.

There are many options to choose from.

Moms and dads will enjoy the Web sites as well.

They can find some of Mr. and Mrs. Santa’s favorite recipes and crafts to make and enjoy throughout the holiday season.

SantaClausOnline.com, DearSantaClaus.com, Santa’sNorthPole.net and Santa-Claus.com are just a few of the sites, along with others, where you can find great adventures about how Santa began his quest, Christmas Carols and even stories about his elves and reindeer.

So, mom, dad, log onto the computer and take the kids on a journey into the cyber world for holiday fun the whole family can enjoy.

And, kids, buckle up, get your mouse clicking and your keyboard smoking.

You’re in for a great adventure to the North Pole.
