RICK JACKSON: Girl power rules – at the age of two

Have your say

Okay, I know I wrote about this last year, but seriously, please do go and visit portablenorthpole.com.

You can set up a personalised video to be e-mailed from Santa for your loved ones, and it’s absolutely free (although you can upgrade for a price).

You put in the information about your child – or whoever – and Santa delivers a video encouraging better behaviour – or applauding it – and then takes the viewer on a tour of his domain.

I’m not one for schmaltzy stuff most of the time, but this is so worth the effort.

And I reckon it’s much nicer than a visit to a shopping centre Santa, as you can watch it again and again and again.

Who knew I’d be such a sucker for the man in red? I must be getting soft in my old age.
