Sightings

Virtual Santa

As the lockdowns began in March of 2020, Santas from around the world realized that the season would be dramatically different. Would children be able to visit Santa. What social distancing measures would need to be in place.

Because Santa knows how to get things done, an army of Santas, Mrs. Clauses, and some incredibly talented and resourceful Elves came together to build a means for virtual Santa visits over the Christmas season. Santa Mike RVA was honored to be a part of this process through Jingle Ring, an amazing company that did amazing things in a matter of just eight months. Stay tuned for next season.
