Texting St. Nick

    Santa knows when you’ve been naughty, he knows when you’ve been nice.  And now Santa can tell you exactly how naughty or nice you’ve been via text, twitter, or personalized video.

    Comment and share your thoughts about keeping the magic of Kris Kringle alive on Sixth Square.
