That letter to Santa is undergoing some major changes. Some of the people who keep track of such things say they're being replaced by e-mail.

For years, Salt Lake City's Natalie Gable and her neighborhood have had a tradition when it comes to letters to Santa.

"We have a fire in a fire pit and all the kids bring their letters to Santa, and they get to put their letter in the fire. It magically goes to the North Pole," she explained.

She doesn't agree with a Harris survey which claims that two-thirds of adults would now prefer an e-mail rather than regular mail to the North Pole.

The survey was conducted for Yahoo and contained some other interesting data. For example, 67 percent of respondents believe Santa uses a PC over a Mac. An equal number agree that some sacrifices will be made this holiday season. But even in this economy, only 13 percent of those surveyed say they would ever give up their home Internet service.

Numerous Web sites are set up for people who want to connect to Santa. But beware: Some sites do not e-mail back responses.
