A Secret Gift From Santa Claus

We have a secret gift to share with you this year — and it’s right under your nose. Santa Claus dropped by the 1812Blockhouse office in November and invited our readers to his special collection of links to fun Christmas sites online. We will be adding additional links he gave us throughout the holiday season.

He shared these instructions on how to find these Secret Santa Links: “Where you see a black ball on this page, look for red on another page and click.” That’s it!
