Socially distant Santa
Locator: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Children in Brazil are meeting Santa virtually
and telling him their wish list via video calls
(SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) SANTA CLAUS, EDI NOEL, SAYING:"They (children) come and the happiness is the same as when they saw me on my seat. Because, I think they're so used to the audio and video that for them this is normal: appearing on television or mobile phone."
Santa's village at the NorteShopping mall
is cleaned between each visit
and children must wash their hands prior to chatting with Santa
