Guaranteed COVID Safe Santa Experience…


October 15, 2021 (Cherry Hill, NJ) – Ho! Ho! Ho … at Home this holiday season! Santa is making sure that everyone who wants to experience the magic of Christmas can do so, even if they are not ready this year to come to his workshop. Santa is offering Create Magic Holiday, the virtual Santa Magic experience with his partner Cherry Hill Programs (CHP), the industry leader in experiential photography that operates holiday experiences in hundreds of locations across the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. From December 10, 2021, to December 24, 2021, Santa can connect with children and families via a special, HD video call (Zoom) arranged through CHP, as part of its 2021 Holiday Magic Traditions bundle.

“Speaking personally, holiday traditions are so important to my family. Being able to ensure that everyone has this opportunity with Create Holiday Magic is incredibly special,” said John Barbieri, Chief Strategy Officer at CHP. “In these times, more than ever before, Christmas, and more specifically Santa, draws families closer and allows us all to step back from our respective day to day activities and get lost in the wonder and childlike innocence that is Santa Magic.”

Create Holiday Magic gives families security and comfort in knowing they can still provide their children with a more than memorable Christmas that will keep its magic alive for them. The Holiday Traditions virtual experience is the only package that includes a live video call with the most wonderful guy of the year – Santa! There are only 2,700 virtual conversations available. While the five-to-seven-minute conversation can be purchased and booked at starting October 15, 2021, the conversation itself will take place for two weeks only, between December 10, 2021, and December 24, 2021 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The Holiday Traditions package also includes unlimited access to My Photo Santa Magic, My Photo PETS, and Story Time (details to each item explained below) – all for only $59.99. ​

If a family is looking for a thorough online experience but not a conversation with Santa, The Jingle Bells digital holiday experience is the next best deal. It includes unlimited access to all the remaining experiences: My Photo SANTA MAGIC, My Photo PETS, and Story Time for only $29.99.

My Photo SANTA MAGIC gives guests an opportunity to create a personalized, virtual photo experience from anywhere, anytime by uploading personal images from any device that can instantly appear in festive holiday backgrounds. When not purchased in a package, My Photo SANTA MAGIC is $19.99. My Photo PETS lets people capture their pets in festive holiday backgrounds when they upload their favorite pet images from any device. My Photo PETS is also $19.99 when purchased on its own.​ Story Time brings everyone’s favorite Christmas stories to them read by Santa Claus. Story Time costs $9.99 and includes ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas and A Christmas Carol. Access to My Photo SANTA MAGIC and My Photo PETS is available through January 31, 2022.
