Portable North Pole - Messages from Santa




A few years ago, someone shared a website with me during the holiday season, and said I had to check it out for my daughters.  So, I did.  I found that I could make a video for each of my children FROM SANTA CLAUS!  I knew immediately what a special memory that would make, so I made the videos and excitedly told my girls, that Santa had left them a special message. They were over the moon excited!  Their very own video message from Santa. THE SANTA. Just for them. It was precious.

Thus, a new tradition was born.  I was so excited when the next year I found a new video to send.  My girls loved it.  They have been receiving special videos from Santa for a few years now, and look forward to it each year.

The website, is Portable North Pole.  What is amazing about this site, is that it is so personal, it helps Santa to say your child's name and even checks pronunciation.  It is so customize-able for each child, it's simply amazing the thought and detail that went into this site.  Not only that, but each year, there is a completely FREE video!  There is the option to sign up for a paid account, where you would have access to seven different videos as well as the option to receive a phone call from Santa.  I definitely think it's worth it to sign up and be able to send your child more than one different message, and especially if you have more than one child, to send each child a different message... but the free video is always great!

I made my girls videos this year and with the premium service was able to make them each their own special, different videos. It was so neat to hear them chat with each other about their messages from Santa.  My youngest got to tour the North Pole's post office, and my oldest got to see her very own Elf!  They were each a big hit.  I love how easy they are to make, and that you can include photos and information about your child to really make it personal.  They LOVED seeing their books on the shelf with the books of other people in our family and people they knew near theirs.
