Cortana gets in the Christmas spirit with new holiday themed chitchat

Christmas is arguably one of the biggest holidays, especially in the United States. Therefore, it should be of no surprise that Microsoft has programmed Cortana to respond to some yuletide inquiries with appropriate responses.

Firing up Cortana and asking her numerous questions or proclamations will inspire the digital personal assistant to respond appropriately. Here are a few examples sent to us by one perceptive reader.

Cortana Christmas responses

Cortana Christmas responses (known so far)

  • Merry (or Happy) Christmas!
  • Where is Santa?
  • Sing me a Christmas song
  • Do you like Christmas?
  • What do you want for Christmas?

Try 'em out and see what happens!

Certainly, there are other holiday themed queries that Cortana can respond to, so the challenge is for you to find them all and share them in comments. Sure, Cortana's chitchat is a bit silly, but if there is one thing Microsoft has learned, you folks like interacting with your personal AI so they seem happy to oblige.

Thanks, anonymous, for the tip!
