Why Should You Book A Virtual Visit With Santa?
Your child may not be able to visit Santa in the traditional sense this year with everything going on in the world. An online chat with Santa is just what they need to keep the allure of Christmas alive. As I mentioned, there are so many great options to help your child feel connected with Santa this year.
Even if you are lucky enough to see Santa in person this year – these virtual ideas are great for keeping in touch with the man with the bag in a whole new way. It will help add to the excitement of Christmas by having your child be in contact with Santa.
HOW CAN YOU BOOK A VIRTUAL VISIT WITH SANTA?
Below you will see all the great options to visit Santa online. Each experience is personalized to your child. You will be able to save the letters and videos Santa sends for years to come making this experience truly unique and special for your child.
VIRTUAL SANTA VISITS OPTIONS
ZOOM WITH SANTA
New for 2020 is Zoom With Santa. Here’s is synopsis straight from their website Santa Claus virtual visits
Zoom Santa visits are very different than the Santa visits you may be accustomed to, or at least they can be.
With Zoom Santa can have longer visits. Santa can spend more time asking and answering questions. Santa can even tell a story or sing a song… it is SO MUCH fun!
AND… again, the entire Zoom Santa visit can be video recorded so you the entire conversation can be enjoyed and shared for years to come.
When you schedule a Zoom meeting with Santa Ed, AKA, That Santa Guy on social media, you’re in for a VERY SPECIAL TREAT.
The portable north pole is something I’ve been doing with my kids for the past five years. Each year I schedule a call from Santa and a video chat. The video chat is a great way for the kids to relay their lists and wishes for Christmas. They have several packages to choose from that will help you make your child’s experience exactly what you want it to be. Each year our elves remind our kiddos that they have videos from years past that they can watch again. Even my son, who is 9 now, gets such a kick out of seeing all of his old Santa videos. This truly helps keep the magic of Christmas alive and well.
Another new option for 2020 and one at the top of my list is Jingle Ring. This service is set to go live on November 1st, but if you book early there is a discount code available. Packages include live calls from Santa and other personalized touches you kids will LOVE!
HOW CAN KIDS TALK TO SANTA?
We discussed three fabulous options for virtual Santa visits, but did you know that your kids can TEXT, EMAIL, and WRITE to Santa, too? For the year where Christmas is going to be anything but normal, I plan to go all out with the Santa communication. Here are some of my family’s favorite ways to talk to Santa!
Santa.com is a magical place on the internet. For a small fee of $9.99 you can get personalized texts sent to your kids daily during the month of December. They also have several packages that include letters from Santa and other fun goodies from The North Pole.
Another option, but not quite as good as Santa.coom is the message from Santa app. You can download the app on your phone to get fun and silly messages from Santa.
KEEP THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS ALIVE
This year especially, it is so important to keep the magic of Christmas alive. I hope you were able to find a fun option for a virtual Santa visit. Here’s hoping your child has the best Christmas ever. ‘Tis the Season for believing!
