I think most people would agree that Christmas time is a magical time of joy, happiness and family traditions. Ask any family that celebrates Christmas and they can all tell you at least one tradition that their family follows every single year to make their holiday season that much more special. Some people have very specific ways they decorate their trees, others love to sing carols, some write letters to Santa or watch a favorite movie and the list goes on and on from there. This year Hallmark is trying to help you add to your traditions with some fun toys based off of the new movie they have coming out called Northpole. On November 1st Walmart will be carrying an exclusive line of toys from Northpole brought to you by Hallmark so you can add some new traditions this year.
It may be the end of October but like many other children Christmas is already on my kids’ minds. So when I received some the Once Upon a Northpole Christmas book, the Find Me, Santa Snowflake and the Northpole Communicator my group was excited. These will definitely fit nicely into our Christmas traditions and add a new one too.
Every year we spend an evening decorating the tree, waiting to turn the lights on until everything has been placed. We love adding new ornaments to our tree each year and the Find Me, Santa Snowflake is going to be a perfect addition this year. With a press of a button it lights up changing colors to let Santa know where you are. There is even a spot to write your name(s) on it so Santa knows just who he looking for.
We follow-up our tree decorating with some Christmas stories and carols to really get everyone into the Christmas spirit. This year we will be adding the Once Upon a Northpole Christmas to the mix. My seven-year old has already been practicing reading it so he can do a good job when we decorate the tree.
This year we get to add an exciting new tradition that I have to tell you my kids are ridiculously excited about! We have a Northpole Communicator and starting December 1st we will get to talk to the Northpole. They can reach us and we can reach them as well. Each day leading up to Christmas this will happen and my daughter keeps checking in with the Northpole to see if it’s time. This one is going to be loads of fun for us and I just love anything that makes the kids giddy at Christmas!
