HOLT, Fla., Dec. 20, 2017–The Santa Hotline is now active and open for business.

As they have for the last 22 years, folks at Eglin Air Force Base’s 96th Communications Squadron have established a direct telephone connection to the North Pole.

Opened until Dec. 22, the hotline is active from 5-9 p.m. for youngsters to call in with last-minute holiday wishes.

When children call, they will first speak with an elf who will take their name, where they’re from and their Christmas wishes before passing them to Santa Claus who miraculously knows all about them.

Children of all ages are invited to call 850-882- NOEL (882-6635) to speak with Santa and his elves.
