I’m Santa Claus.
I was born in 270 AD somewhere in Europe. My parents named me Nicholas. Later, because I always tried to show compassion and generosity to those I met, people called me Saint Nicholas. Over the centuries, I have been called by many other names: Father Christmas. Saint Nick. Sinterklaas. Kris Kringle. Or simply Santa. Mrs. Claus sometimes refers to me as her Jolly Old Elf.
As you can imagine, I have had a lot of experience meeting and talking with children. But this year, 2020, the whole world is challenged by a serious form of the flu called the coronavirus or COVID-19. To stay healthy and safe, a lot of families are, quite wisely, staying at home instead of visiting me at malls, parties and Christmas villages. So, I won’t be getting to meet with you all face-to-face as I have every year in the past.
I have created this website to make it possible for children of all ages everywhere to connect with me and have some fun. The website is called SantaOnline.net. It’s about meeting Santa online on the Internet.
At SantaOnline.net, kids from birth to 120 years old can:
- Schedule an online 1-on-1 live chat with me
- Watch and join in as I sing songs and read stories from my cozy cabin at the North Pole
- Bake a scrumptious cookie following easy instructions from Mrs. Claus
- Write me a letter or send me an email
- Sign up for a newsletter that will keep you updated on news from the North Pole
- Follow my progress around the world on Christmas Eve
- Play some fun Santa-certified computer games
I really care about kids and families. And I believe in and encourage values such as kindness, honesty and trust. All of the content on my website is child-centered and completely safe for children of all ages to explore and enjoy. You can reach out with questions about me or this site by sending me an email any time of the year. Just address it to Santa@SantaOnline.net.
I live at the North Pole with Mrs. Claus, a lot of elves and a herd of strong, flying reindeer. Throughout the year we work together joyfully, creating toys of all kinds to bring to children around the world on Christmas Eve. This year, 2020, because of the coronavirus, delivering toys is going to be pretty tricky. I’ll do my best to safely deliver what is on your Christmas Wish List, but I may have to use a little more magic than usual to put your present under the tree.
I’m sure you agree that the “Spirit of Christmas” is valuable throughout the year. That’s why SantaOnline.net will be thriving and expanding all year round, 24/7/365. Come back often to see what’s new, enjoy the familiar, or schedule an online visit with me to celebrate your birthday.
Thanks for stopping by.
