The Virtual Chat with Santa occurred at 2 p.m. on December 11. You can watch a recorded video of the live event here.
Ever wonder how Santa preps for the holidays? Curious to know how many elves work in the North Pole? Scratching your head about how St. Nick distributes all those presents in just one night? Submit all of your burning questions to Santa himself, and tune in on Tuesday, December 11 from 2:00 to 2:30 p.m. Central for a live chat to get all the answers!
That’s right! We’re excited to announce that, for the fourth consecutive year, the man in the red suit will make a stop at TCEA’s headquarters to host a free, live chat for students around the world. So make that mug of hot cocoa, get yourself a big plate of sugar cookies, and read on to find out how your class can take part in this merry occasion.
Come One, Come All
The Virtual Chat with Santa is intended for kids of all ages (and adults, too!). This event requires no registration and is broadcast through YouTube. You do not have to be a member of TCEA to join in the Yuletide fun. If you’re an advance planner like Kris Kringle (he makes his list and checks it twice, after all), you can submit your questions ahead of time using this form. Like to ask your questions on the fly (just like those reindeer would)? No problem! Santa will also accept questions live during the chat. (Just so you know, if you submit your questions in advance, Santa may give you a shout out by name during the live event!)
Do you know someone who might want to break down their classroom walls to talk to an expert on sleigh bells, toys, and holiday magic? Spread the word and make sure all Santa fans know about this fun event that comes but once a year.
Spreading Good Cheer
Santa won’t just be answering questions. He’ll also be doing what he does best: getting everyone in the spirit of joy and giving. Don’t miss an opportunity to hear one of Santa’s favorite holiday stories read by the man himself. He’ll also give an exclusive update on the latest happenings at the North Pole. Don’t you want to snag the inside scoop on Mrs. Claus and the elves? You can learn all the latest reindeer games and gossip by joining us live.
How to Join
Are you ready to get jolly? Bookmark this post because a direct link to the live chat will be available on this blog on the morning of Tuesday, December 11 starting at 9:00 a.m. Central. Make sure to test it out so that you know you will have access. If you are unavailable to attend the live event, a recording of the chat will be available shortly after it ends. If your students submitted questions in advance, they might still get to hear their questions read and answered.
One more time…Join us on December 11 from 2:00 to 2:30 p.m. Central for a live chat with the North Pole’s most famous resident (and a great TCEA friend). We hope to see you there!
