In 2005 the Elves and I launched
SantaUniversity.com as part of a massive technology upgrade to my worldwide
communications systems. For many years, I had left letters each Christmas for good girls and boys all
over the country. While these long-standing traditional letters from me had brought smiles to countless children's
faces, they have always covered the same basic "good girl and boy" ground every year, and kids were starting to think
that there was something funny going on!
So, I decided to shake things up and retire the old letters. SantaUniversity.com gave me the opportunity to
offer high-quality, customized, and full-color Diplomas for all of the good children in the world, celebrating all
the great Christmas spirit they display. I also added "Naughty & Nice List" and "Gift Promise From Santa" certificates
for children and adults alike.
After the success of SantaUniversity.com, I decided to further embrace the Internet by
launching SantasBigList.com. My Elves worked day and night since for a year
to build the first FREE online Christmas Gift Registry that allows children to email
their yearly gift wish-list directly to the North Pole. Parents can also add their children to my yearly
Naughty or Nice Lists and purchase certificates celebrating their child's appearance on the appropriate list.
I have also become very concerned by the hectic nature of the Christmas shopping season these days, and wanted to do everything I could
to reduce the holiday stress level of all the families I visit on Christmas Eve. SantasBigList.com
allows any family to create a FREE gift registry available for viewing by any of their friends and
family (by invitation only). An individual’s gift registry also provides easy access to many online retailers, enabling
friends and family to quickly decide on a gift, purchase it, and even send it – all from the convenience of their home or office.
So take a minute to join SantasBigList.com and get a big helping
hand in making your Christmas shopping easier this year and for many years to come. I look forward to visiting your house this
Christmas Eve. Don't forget to get your Official
Santa Landing Zone Yard Sign to make it easier for my reindeer to see where to land at your house!
