Who are the founders of 'Santa's Enchanted Mailbox'?
Chris and Elisa Cirri are the founders behind 'Santa's Enchanted Mailbox'. The idea came from starting another Christmas tradition with their family, apart from Elf on the Shelf. Elisa's stepfather Dave, who is a contractor, made the prototype. Her brother, Steve, who is an engineer, perfected the model. Chris then tested the model, handing it over to his young son.
"He put a letter in there, raised the flag and his face said it all," Cirri said in a conversation with NBC. "He was just in awe. I knew right then and there we have to move forward with this." And thus, began a whole new Christmas tradition, one that the Cirri's wanted to share with families all over. "Christmas is all about magic; with Santa's Enchanted Mailbox there is no longer a reason for that magic to be left to the imagination. Santa's Enchanted Mailbox brings real Christmas magic right into your home! Thank you for allowing part of our family Christmas tradition to be shared with you and your family." they mentioned on their website.
