Free, Personalized Video From Santa to Your Kid Will Guarantee Good Behavior (VIDEO)

Mom Moment 6

santa clausBesides carting your kid off to the mall to "sit on Santa's lap" and making sure the cookies left out on Christmas Eve are gone in the morning, there's not a whole lot parents can do to reinforce the existence of Old St. Nick. (Although I did know one person whose dad hid outside her window, jingling bells, to approximate the sound of reindeer approaching. Don't think she really bought it, unfortunately.) Anyway, thanks to the magic of the interwebs, now parents have a new way to make the legend of Kris Kringle come to life -- and it's free!! God bless us, every one!

Portable North Pole is offering free, personalized video messages from Santa to celebrate the site's 5th anniversary, and hey, why NOT send one to your little guy or gal? If my kids were younger, I would totally do it. The "Santa's watching" warning would be even more effective! Alas, they're too jaded and world-weary to fall for such trickery and can only be threatened with juvie. (KIDDING!)

I did this for my 2 year old and she LOVED it. She was clapping and answering Santa. For sure doing this every year.

I would but my daughter has caught on to the truth and I would rather just let it go than try to perpetuate a lie that will only last a year, 2 tops and then I'll have her wondering why I lied to her even after she found out the truth. So now we are a family that believes in the SPIRIT of Santa Claus rather than actually believing IN Santa Claus. Works for me since now we won't have to share the credit for the gifts with a fat guy in a red suit.
