Ho Ho Ho! You can send a personalized video message from Santa to a child or adult, complete with their name, picture, age, desired present and other information. Any child who believes in Santa would love to watch a video with Santa saying his or her name and other personal information, making it seem as if Santa were speaking to him or her directly.
You start by going to www.portablenorthpole.tv and entering the basic information about the child, including first name, gender, age, country of residence and other information about the child.
You can also request that a birthday video be created by providing the child’s birthday date.
One feature I especially like is the ability to choose how Santa pronounces your child’s name. I checked this out with my name and was able to get Santa to pronounce my name correctly by checking “Carolynne” instead of “Carolyn.” ( The latter choice made Santa pronounce my name as “Caroline”.) Make sure to use this feature so Santa gets the child’s name right!
You tell Santa whether the child has been naughty or nice, as well as what has been expected of her this year. You have a choice of including a present the child has asked for so Santa can mention it. If you don’t want Santa to spill the beans, just leave that box unchecked.
You can upload some pictures of the child which will be included in the video to enhance the feeling that Santa is really talking to the child.
Lastly, you enter information about yourself so the video can be sent to you via email. You have the choice of sending the video to another email as well. You can preview the video before you send it to make sure that Santa has all of his information correct!
Here is a sample video that was created by Portable North Pole for Christmas 2010 so you get a general idea of what the site provides:
The Christmas 2011 video is quite different but equally charming!
You can also send a personal Santa video to an older child or an adult. This video is very entertaining for everyone!
