Santa Claus Calls – Blog 1: Hark! Can you hear me?!

Santa Claus Calls – Blog 1: Hark! Can you hear me?!

With Santa, Mrs Claus and the elves locked down in the North Pole until sleigh travel is safe once more, Chill Factore has organised some very special Santa Claus Calls to the man himself so no little boys or girls will go without their Santa’s Grotto experience this year.

As we count down to Christmas, Santa will be giving us regular Yule Blogs to share his preparations. In his first exclusive blog for Chill Factore, Santa explains how he’s getting to grips with video calling technology…

Testing, testing. One, two, three. This is Santa Claus. Over!

Oh-ho-ho, hello there! Yes, it’s Santa here. I’ve just been learning how to make video calls. I’ve been getting some elf-help lessons from my fantastic elves. And do you know what? I think I’ve cracked it! We’ve had one or two technical hiccups along the way. My helpers have seen far more of my nostrils than they ever bargained for and Mrs Claus has told me off more times than I care to remember for SPEAKING TOO LOUDLY!

I expect you boys and girls – and your parents and carers – are already whizzes with this new-fangled video calling stuff by now, aren’t you?! Well, it’s taken a lot of brain cells to teach this old dog some new tricks, I can tell you. But I’m proud to say I’ve mastered it. Not bad for a 1,750-year-old, don’t you think?! Now that we’re ready, we cannot wait to welcome you and your family to beam in live and direct to my grotto!

We’re going to have so much fun! We have plenty of wonderful surprises in store for you and it’s a real honour to be able to bring you and your family together for some magical moments. Mrs Claus has sworn me to secrecy about what’s going to happen when we meet you virtually. But, seeing as she’s not here at the moment, and this is my blog, I’m going to give you a sneak preview anyway. Ho-ho-ho, here goes!

How does a bit of real Arctic snow sound to you? I know it doesn’t snow all that often where you live. But it’s the loveliest stuff, isn’t it? So if you can’t have a white Christmas, I’ll bring it to you! And have you been naughty or nice this year?! I’m sure I know the answer already but we’ll let my Naughty-Nice’ometer be the judge of that, shall we?! Oh, and there’s a very special reindeer who is desperate to meet you…

I do hope you can join me, Santa, virtually at my magical Christmas grotto this year. Of course, I will miss seeing you in person. But this really is the next best thing. Those clever little elves at Chill Factore have pulled out all the stops to help me be with you this Christmas. After a very peculiar year for all of us, I cannot tell you how excited I am to dust off my big red suit, trim my lockdown beard, and speak to all of you my friends!

I’m looking forward to seeing you soon.

Season’s greetings!

Santa Claus
