Naughty or nice? Ask those computer elves to find out

STEVE CANAVAN: My condition is a right old pain in the neck

Have your say

The internet can be a wonderful thing, you know. A friend sent me a link to the portable North Pole this week and I simply had to share it with you.

If you’ve got kids, log on to and create a bespoke message from Santa to your loved ones.

It really is very good and simple. You type in a few details, tell Santa what you’ve asked your child to do (for example, stop sucking their thumb) and the website does the rest.

My three children have now had personalised video messages, which culminated with their details being fed into a machine by two elves to work out if they’ve been naughty or nice.

Honestly, it’s a super idea. And better yet, it’s absolutely free.
