Virtual Santa ops!
Looking to get up close and personal with the man in red without risking the health of your family? This may the the year that technology saved Christmas. Book a call, write an email or set up a zoom chat with Santa Claus this year. And if all our wishes come true, they’ll be a vaccine next year, and in 2021 Santa will emerge from behind the camera to greet all the little girls and boys IRL.
