Santa Goes Virtual with Zoom Visits

(NewsUSA) - Santa Claus is coming to town -- via Zoom.

In-person visits with Santa Claus at shopping malls, or Santa breakfasts hosted by community groups, are likely to be casualties of the ongoing Covid19 pandemic in many parts of the United States.

Fortunately, Santa has gone virtual. The website brings the magic of Christmas directly to families in their homes. offers parents an opportunity to schedule an online virtual visit with Santa for their children. Kids can have the thrill of seeing Santa safely and conveniently.

"Your holiday visit has never been easier," according to the company website.

During the visit, Santa will meet a child or children from his Zoom studio at the North Pole. Children can talk to Santa, tell him what they would like for Christmas, sing their favorite Christmas songs, and even enjoy a reading of the classic poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas," also known as "Twas the Night Before Christmas." Parents can add to the fun by purchasing a custom message from Santa to encourage good behavior or just share holiday cheer.

Santa Sessions start at 10 minutes in length and more time can be added based on the number of children talking to Santa. Parents have the option to record the Zoom call for posterity, to share with the grandparents, or to embarrass the kids when they get older.

Santa also meets virtually with groups; he can join a Zoom call with a scout troop, school class, or other organizations.

A virtual Visit With Santa Claus is safe and easy, and can be conducted on a computer, tablet, or video-enabled smartphone. Booking a session is quick and easy for parents -- just click on the online calendar to select an available date and time slot for up to four children. Payment is securely conducted through PayPal.

The Visit With Santa Claus website allows the purchase of gift cards for Santa sessions that can be given to friends, family members, or families in need, and anyone purchasing an online Visit With Santa is automatically helping other children. Part of the proceeds from virtual Santa Sessions will go to support the company's annual toy drive.
