You Better Watch Out, You Better Not Cry…
Forget threatening to put coal in your child’s stocking, the multi-media world has made it THAT much easier to keep your kids on their best behavior in preparation for Santa’s trip down the chimney.
Portable North Pole is quite possibly the best/cruelest/innovative/funniest website I’ve seen in a while. Here’s how it works—you plug-in all the details on your child; everything from hair and eye color to how they interrupt their parents or won’t eat their veggies and of course, what they want for Christmas. The website will then create a personalized message from Santa with frighteningly accurate details to make your child think that Santa really knows if they have been naughty or nice! Want to make your seven-year-old, with the dirty mouth, fear for his life that he’s not getting the new toy he put on his Christmas list? Have Santa deliver the message himself. Absolutely genius!
I recall Santa writing me a note one Christmas morning saying I had been mean to my mom and I needed to be nicer in the new year…let me tell you, I was mortified! I can’t imagine how quickly a message from Santa via the web would have curbed my sharp tongue.
‘Tis the season to scare children and—better yet—lessen the amount of presents you’ll have to buy them!
