With uncertainty around COVID-19 restrictions between now and Christmas day, many Santa and Christmas experiences have gone virtual this year so you can still meet Santa but from the safety of your own home. We have done a roundup of a few virtual experiences below.
Worldwide Christmas Eve Jingle 2020, 6 pm
Everyone is been asked to go outside on Christmas Eve and ring a bell for 2 minutes to spread Christmas spirit and to help Santa fly that sleigh. With the added option of set Carols to sing after, it will create a wave of bells across the world.
After a tough year, it would be an amazing memory for the kids and communities. End 2020 with a bit of Magic, hope and togetherness! #christmasevejingle
