2020..the year of Zoom.
Everyone’s zooming…your coworkers…your friends…Grandma.
Even the big guy….
>>SANTA (21) I have some really great elves in the IT Department up here at the North Pole and they’ve set me up with a wonderful computer so I can Zoom, straight from the north pole into good little boys’ and girls’ homes.
And when santa isn’t behind his Windows…talking with all those good little boys and girls.
He is still..behind a window.
>>SANTA (0105) I’ve decided to visit Bethlehem on Saturdays from 1-5 in the afternoon, but they’ve got me uh…in a window..(laughs)
>>NAT (FROM VIDEO OF LITTLE BOY) “That is so beautiful. I want a drone! Ok–did you draw that on your own?
There’s no sittin on his knee this year…but even behind that window…and mask…Santa is still finding a way.
>>SANTA (0115) We can still talk I can still hear.
And he can still pose for photos…so tradition isn’t completely out the window…though..it kind of is if you catch my drift.
And when he does get out on the town…he’s wearing a mask..and so is everyone around him.
Santa wishes it wasn’t so…but he’s got a lotta people to look out for
>> (0123) We’ve got to keep everyone safe. I don’t want to bring any issues back to the north poles, we need my elves to keep making toys, mrs. clause to stay safe and well.
So if you decide to chat with Ol Saint Nick
Just keep in mind…he’s still got that book.
(0412) well I’d love to look you up in the nice book…if that’s okay, we’ve got santa’s nice book right here.
He looked me up.
It’s kinda a personal thing..so I’ll just leave that one up to your imagination.
