Top Links You Must Click On Hosts Free “Ask Santa” Website for Children to Ask Santa Anything About the Holidays, the largest source for help from real professionals online, is hosting a fun, free Ask Santa website from November 27 through Christmas Eve for children everywhere to write in with their questions for Santa Claus. Inquisitive kids excited about Christmas and their parents puzzled by tough holiday questions, like how Santa delivers so many gifts in one night, can turn to for answers to anything they’ve ever wondered about Old Saint Nick.

Unlike other sites and services, and local shopping malls, that invite gift lists from children,’s Ask Santa website addresses questions from kids about the idea of Christmas and Santa Claus’ life in the North Pole. This year, will donate one dollar for every question submitted on Ask Santa to JDRF, up to $20,000.

Some of the most popular questions that children asked Santa Claus on the site last year include:

  • How do you fit presents enough for the whole world in one sack?
  • What is Mrs. Claus’ first name?
  • What is your favorite cookie?
  • Why do you wear red?
  • How can reindeer fly?

“We’ve all been looking forward to the second annual Ask Santa site because it’s fun to see the fascination children have with Santa Claus and the holiday season, said Andy Kurtzig, CEO of “The rest of the year, connects people with real professionals to help answer important real-life questions and concerns. We’re excited this year to not only bring some magic to kids, but also help kids with type 1 diabetes through a contribution to JDRF for each question asked on Ask Santa.”

About is the largest source for professional expertise online, providing access to 10,000 professionals in 700 fields, including doctors, lawyers, veterinarians, auto mechanics and tech specialists. Professionals provide quick and affordable answers to just about any question, anytime and from anywhere.
