Santa was here...Now prove it with pictures!

As a child, I was convinced that Santa had been to our house simply because all the cookies were eaten and that nice glass of Macallan we left him was empty. (Our Santa drank highland single malt scotch whisky. What of it?) And there were presents.

Kids today are smarter than that. They have cell phones and Wii's. All I had was a Muppet album and a Jem doll that had little lights for earrings. Technologically advanced? Not exactly.

If you are going to keep running this Santa charade for as long as possible, better figure out a way to make your minis really believe. (I hear that the whole..."I'm going to tell Santa" has excellent behavioral modification results.)

Here's your weapon of choice: Capture the Magic.

Snap a picture of your Christmas tree setting. Upload it to the website and drop in one of their many Santa options and voilĂ ! Photographic proof that Santa had indeed slid down your chimney.

Here are some examples:

Disclaimer: I haven't used it, but a co-worker said it was so simple a monkey could do it. Which made me think it could be kind of tricky because monkeys are actually highly intelligent. But, then I remembered the co-worker is not that smart...so it should be a freakin' breeze.

Merry Christmas!

I am sitting here giggling at the thought of Santa downing single malt scotch as he goes about his merry business. That's my sort of Santa you grew up with . . .

Have a wonderful trip to the coast!

That is such a neat idea. I found it too late for Christmas but hope they do it next year. I saw it on Ned's sight and it looks very believable.
