Zoom Call with Santa This Christmas!
We are working hard with our professional hire a Santas to save Christmas 2020! The public health crisis that has dominated this year in the UK and beyond is throwing all kinds of routines and plans out of action. And so we have decided the next best thing to meeting Santa in the flesh is to get him to Zoom!
See below some samples of our Santa’s in action!
What is Zoom?
Back in March when lockdown came to the UK, people who could work from home were told to do so. They still needed to keep in touch with colleagues and clients. There are many ways of doing this including real-time video calls.
Zoom is one of the platforms that has become popular as a result. It can be a direct online face-to-face conversation using your PC, smartphone or tablet. It was also popular because it can host conference calls. This means more than one person can join the Zoom meeting.
It can be used as an ‘audio only’ platform – like a phone call – or you can switch on the video for a brilliant video call.
Why we’ve chosen Zoom
Zoom is a platform that has risen to the challenge that the mass working from home in the UK presented it with. It is a safe, secure platform that also has a stable connection. There’s nothing worse than looking forward to a Zoom call with Santa to find that the connection is not good and you spend most of the time looking at a buffering Santa!
The benefits of a Santa Zoom call this Christmas
We know that the real thing is what children and families want when they meet Santa but this year, we’re doing things a little different;
- Safe – it just might not be possible for everyone to meet Santa in the flesh this year. We want to make sure that everyone is safe when they do so and one of the safest way in terms of health – yours and ours! – is a Zoom call with Santa.
- Convenient time – no more queuing outside the grotto, no worrying about social distancing, washing hands and so on… you welcome Santa via Zoom into your home at a time that suits you. Better still, keep it a surprise and you’ll have excited squeals of delight from everyone!
- It’s live! – this isn’t a recorded video: it is a real-life trained hire a Santa professional, holding a conversation with you and your children just as he would if he came to an event or you visited him in his grotto.
- Protected – all our professional Santa performers are DBS checked and along with a secure connection, you’ll have no concerns about safety or privacy.
- Quality – it’s the same great quality. Brilliant actors, great chat from Santa, brilliant red suit and the full white beard (and the twinkle in his eye that brings the extra sparkle of festive magic)
