Forget snail mail: Santa and his helpers are tech-savvy now. At the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Destin, Florida, children can Skype with Old Saint Nick prior to their stay at the resort. A reservation at the resort is not required to Skype with Santa; it is open to everyone. Santa has already talked to kids in Africa, Sweden, and Canada!
Santa is available to Skype between 4 and 5pm central time on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in November, as well as December 7. It is free to participate; families only need a Skype account in order to book a time with Santa and discuss their Christmas lists.
Sandestin also offers a Santa Tuck-In, where Santa comes knocking at the door, offers each child a personalized gift and reads them a Christmas story. These visits will be available Fridays and Saturdays from November 25 through December 16. It costs $65 a child (and $15 per additional child). A portion of the proceeds will benefit Toys for Tots.
