Regardless of what you believe in, it’s hard to deny the magic of the holiday season. I know there are varying views when it comes to telling your children about Santa, and while we can all be cynical at some point, I love to get lost in the season with my daughter’s and try to experience the magic the same way they do- for the first time.
My oldest daughter knows that her mommy is friends with Santa. She wondered why Santa would personally come to visit her each year and hand deliver presents, so I had to tell her the truth- Santa and mommy went to college together (well, it’s our truth anyway!) Santa also makes frequent phone calls to make sure the girls are staying on task and doing what they need to do to stay on the nice list, but when my oldest asked to FaceTime with Santa, I knew I had gotten in too deep! They would figure out that the man in the red suit was a relative before long, and this charade would be hard to keep up.
Thankfully the elves at Portable North Pole conjured up a great way we can keep in touch with Santa with a personalized video complete with pictures of the child! We’ve used Portable North Pole for 3 years now, and each year the girls get excited when Santa knows exactly what they want, what they’ve been up to, and listening to the naughty or nice verdict. After they watch their videos, the message remains with my girls- My oldest has to be more respectful “because Santa said so” and my youngest needs to get along with her sister. It’s real to them- because Santa really did know so much about what they have accomplished this past year!
To make a personalized video for your kids, head over to Portable North Pole. You can have Santa say your child’s name, or a pet name if you prefer- like princess, cupcake, etc. You can easily upload pictures from your computer or connect to Facebook and share those special moments- a birthday party, a vacation, an adorable picture your child made.. there’s so much you can do! Check out the video below:
