Starting December 1, Compuserve will offer a multi-lingual wish list service for kids and adults.
Subscribers can write to Santa in English, Spanish, German or French. In addition, Compuserve will host a weekly real-time chat session with Santa, starting November 26.
Along with virtual Santa, Compuserve's holiday festivities will include a Santa Gram service, recipes from Mrs. Claus, and an art contest. For Web users, there is already a blizzard of Christmas-related sites orbiting cyberspace. Christmas on the Internet features an audio message from Santa.
