The image of a child carefully crafting their list of desired goodies in a letter to Santa is an iconic part of Christmas. Whether you’re out trying to check off everything this weekend, or keeping that note in a treasured place for the future, this is a time when an email isn’t as touching as a handwritten letter. Comic Sans certainly isn’t as cute as a child’s notes and drawings.
When it comes to the jolly man himself, that letter to Santa is a hallowed pre-digital tradition – even the US Postal Service has been delivering notes to the North Pole for more than a hundred years.
If you’re a parent, we have an idea you’ll love. Have your child (or children) write their letter to Santa with a Livescribe #smartpen. If you’re feeling extra sneaky (or naughty, for that matter) start recording a pencast and ask them to record a special message for Santa. You can save that pencast to play back in the future, and even email yourself the list, so you can enjoy their drawings while in line at the store.
Make sure you sync these pencasts and letters with your Livescribe+ app before they ask to put the letter they wrote in an envelope to mail. The upside? You’ll not only have cherished memories safely stored for years to come, but you can also send these treasures to your relatives near and far to enjoy.
Happy Holidays from the team at Livescribe!
