Christmas SMS

Text messaging, commonly called texting is sending of “short” (no more than 160 characters) text messages, using the Short Message Service, from cellular (mobile) phones. This service is available on all the contemporary digital mobile phones and some of the personal digital assistants (provided they have an onboard wireless device).

The first SMS message ever was sent in the United Kingdom on 3 December 1992 over the Vodafone GSM network from a personal computer to an Orbitel 901 mobile handset. For the fact, this article is about Christmas SMS’s, the content of the first text message is very relevant to our topic. The body of that message was nothing else than a greeting: ‘Merry Christmas’. And thus the SMS history begins…

Now we have year 2007 – how do you think – are SMS’s so popular as they were ment to be? Well… They are. Just look at the following numbers that comes from a Telia’s (the Sweddish mobile telephony giant)survey report: in 2005 there were 6.2 million texts sent. One year later – more than a half more: 9.3 million texts. Moreover, Australian Telstra also recorded a huge volume of texts sent – nearly 16 million. The same situation is elswhere, the above countries were just an example of how such small thing like Christmas SMS can improve communication between people celebrating Christmas.

SMS messages are so popular, that you can find hundreds, if not thousands of websites that offer you free, ready made Christmas SMS, that you can send to your family, friends and colleagues. The modern technology and marketing went even further – there are special gateways for sending texts from internet to mobile phones, so you dont have to type the message on your phone’s keyboard. You just select a ready text and send it to the recipient’s mobile instantly.

Yes… SMS are a relly great invention… And if you ever see a bearded man dressed in the red and white clothes, breaking into your house, trying to hijack you and put you in his sack – don’t worry. It is Santa Claus. Someone just sent him a text in which he/she asked to have just you for Christmas! [But Beware! what if Santa has got more than one such texts?]
