Sioux City, IA (PRWEB) December 20, 2006
Crowded malls and long lines waiting to see Santa Claus are no longer necessary to get into the holiday spirit. The tradition of visiting Santa Claus is getting a stir, now parents have the option to 'do-it-yourself' even when it comes to Santa Claus. http://www.SantaSpeaking.com offers live personalized phone calls from Santa. All that is needed to talk to Santa is a computer to schedule Santa, a few juicy tidbits to personalize the experience and a phone number where the Santa believer can be reached. Santa Claus handles the rest -- no busy mall in sight.
Parents are jumping on board and taking the reins with the personalized DIY Santa trend from http://www.SantaSpeaking.com. They're allowed to personalize the whole experience from beginning to end, including the time, the place Santa will call and the details that Santa will mention during the phone call -- which can be anything to make the experience more believable in the Santa believer's eyes, including the so-called 'Naughty Activities' like fighting with siblings, not picking up toys or talking too much in class.
The benefits of the do-it-yourself phone calls from Santa Claus are numerous. "Number one, for both the parents and children, is the believability of the experience. Secondly, parents are enjoying not having to leave home, it's a hassle-free experience for families at such a hectic time of year. Thirdly, it's non-threatening, an alarming number of children see Santa at the mall as a stranger, the Mall Santa can be very scary to small children," says Brandon Lobaugh, from SantaSpeaking.com.
"Anymore it's hard for Santa Claus at the mall to impress children. Toddlers today are using the computer, kids are playing life-like video games and even the cartoons are getting more realistic. This young, media savvy generation is wise and discriminating -- wise enough to wonder why the man in the red suit at the mall doesn't really know what Santa should know. We're doing our best to make it better for the children and parents," says Anne Gaskell, owner and founder.
Calls are available November 24th through December 24th morning. Calls are $15 for 3-5 minutes ($5 additional after December 15th), keepsake recordings are available on CD and MP3.
