The Story Of Santa Claus

Santa Claus is an iconic personality during the Christmas season that both kids and the kids at heart love.

As the story goes, Santa Claus along with his his team of reindeer, deliver gifts to good boys and girls on Christmas Eve.

Santa is portrayed an older heavyset man with a white beard who carries a big red bag of gifts and has a team of elves working in his own toy factory at the North Pole.

A Cute Handmade Card Is A Heartwarming Gesture

Although technology has invaded our daily lives, giving cute handmade cards during the holiday season is still a tradition that is still practiced by many people.
