Where To See Santa In 2020

Yep, all meet and greets are off in 2020, but there’s still a way to see Santa!

Newsflash to all the Grinches out there: Christmas is NOT cancelled this year. Yes, even with the pandemic and all this craziness about the GCQ, Christmas is still happening, thank you very much — and there’s no virus that can stop it. Unfortunately, Santa and his elves are stuck in the North Pole this year — which means he won’t be able to make it to the usual meet and greets around town. Before you break the news to the kidlets, here are some virtual options that might just do the trick:

Portable North Pole (PNP)

Your good little girls and boys will love Portable North Pole’s personalized videos. The best part? You can personalize each video with your kid’s name by filling out a simple form. PNP will create a customized greeting based on all the info on you’ve submitted — easy peasy!

Catch a Character

If you’ve got a bunch of skeptic kids, they’ll need proof. And this is where the Catch a Character app comes in handy. All you’ll need to do is take a photo of your Christmas tree, living room or child’s bedroom and pick a Santa to use in your image. Psst… you can use this app with the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy too!

Jingle Ring

For a special treat, check out Jingle Ring’s Santa Claus visits. Not only can you have an actual conversation with the man in red himself (and Mrs Claus, if you want), you’ll also get a keepsake video plus photos. And, you can choose the language and Santa you’d like to use.

That’s Santa!

We understand that your kids have had enough of Zoom, but they’ll want to dial in this call! Through That’s Santa, you can book 15 or 30 minute live Zoom sessions to meet with Santa over your computer, phone or tablet. You can even invite other relatives to join in!

All this techy stuff too much for you? Well, we think nothing beats a good old-fashioned handwritten letter to Santa too. Let the festivities begin!
