Ho Ho Holiday Sites – Sharing the Christmas Spirit for Free
By Audrey van Petegem, Senior Editor
Being around small children during this time of year, it is not hard to get into the festive mood. They see joy and wonder every where they go; from Mall Santas to Christmas lights strung about. To add to the magic of Christmas here are some ever-so-sweet sites, all of which are free to use. Yes.
Last year we mentioned www.NORADsanta.org here and we want to mention it again. We LOVE this site for its appeal to children while being educational, since it is part of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). Today is the first day to start tracking Santa. Don't forget to head to the North Pole village for a new educational game every day up to Dec 24th. It's like an on-line Advent Calendar.
Do you want to receive a phone call from Santa? Santa Claus will call you all the way from the North Pole for free. Really.Just go to ChristmasDialer.com, put in your phone number, choose one of three messages and Santa will call you within minutes. It is that easy!
Here is a chance to show your little ones that Santa does exist by creating a video of him in your own home. Simply upload a photo to theSantaVideo.com, pick a Santa and watch him unload the Christmas gifts and enjoy his milk and cookies. Merely fill out a two minute questionnaire and get the video for free. Just make sure your kids don't see you on this page or you will have gone ahead and burst their Santa bubble.
And let us not forget JibJab this holiday season. Get your family and friends on the Holiday Rocks video or the other JibJab Holiday Sendables! You can post it on Facebook for free.
So, here is to you and your family. May you also experience a bit of wonderment during this holiday season. Merry Christmas.
