Thanks to TokBox‘s cool new live video calling service, I can keep the mythology going by letting them call Santa themselves. Free. We upload a video message for Santa, and they’ll get an actual personalized video from him right back! I hope he mentions the part about how he particularly loves children who are nice to their moms.
In the meantime, I can send holiday-themed video mail to all of my friends and family, and each time I do, TokBox donates a nickel to charity. That probably offsets the whole blackmail thing, karma-wise. I mean, I’m sure it does. -Mir
Ed: Cool alternative particularly if the snow kept you from getting to see the real Santa this weekend like us. Sniff. Sniff. -Liz
