Brazilian children meet Santa virtually

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
