Send your kids a personal video message from Santa

Last year, I used a service ( free ) called Portable Northpole TV but it doesn't seem to work anymore ( perhaps Santa ran out of bandwidth ).

A sample card is here.

Their website is: www.portablenorthpole.tv but somehows redirects to LeShop giving an error - http://leshop.portablenorthpole.ch/home


Anyway, I found an alternative at:

http://magicsanta.ca/

Help keep the spirit if Christmas alive and forward on to as many of your friends and colleagues.

There is also an iPhone app for it.

Works with US numbers ( worked for me from here as I have a US Google Voice number ). My 5 year old niece in WA loved it!

The alternative to a phone call is to have the personalised call from Santa sent by email as a recording.

Free Personalised Santa letters for kids link ..Brilliant !

Hi everyone

Im sure you have all seen the kids personalised santa video but wanted to also share this letter link with you also


http://www.freelettersfromsantaclaus.com/tellafriend.asp

My kids always write their Xmas list to Santa which we post with them of course and I use this site for him to reply back,

Ive been using it for 2 years now and you have about 5 letters to choose from and can personalise it.

My children find their letter under their pillow on Christmas Eve morning and get so excited to have a letter back from him

Happy Holidays

Caroline

Hi there,

Do you know that in Switzerland if you send a letter to Santa Claus by post (no stamp required) and you put your name and address on the letter, Santa will answer you back?

We did it with my son, and about a week later he received a (standard) letter, with a nice puzzle to colour. He was delighted that Santa wrote him a letter
