Meet Santa virtually

Location: London, England

Entertainment company Ministry of Fun

has created Santa HQ

an app that offers kids to 'meet' Santa online

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TRAINER AND MINISTRY OF FUN FOUNDER JAMES LOVELL, SAYING:''And I feel this year we have to accept that Christmas is going to be a bit different. And that's why we've created the Santa HQ app. It's I'm not kind of thinking of it as a sort of second best thing at all, because actually, children spend a long time looking at iPads and talking to their friends through their smartphones, et cetera, et cetera. So actually, for a child meeting Father Christmas on a screen, it's actually quite a natural and normal thing.''
