For many families the Christmas holidays are a time when they can pack up the car and go and spend some time with family who they don’t get to see that often. They might be staying with Mums or Dad’s who don’t live together meaning children are away from their usual surroundings at Christmas which may be rather exciting but of course, they might question how Father Christmas will find them on Christmas Eve to leave them a gift or two under the tree.
Reroute Santa wants to put your children’s minds at rest with their new Reroute Santa service. This year they’ll be able to send Father Christmas a quick message to let them know where they will be. The service is quick, easy and free to use and will give your children peace of mind that Father Christmas knows they won’t be at home this year.
According to research by holiday lettings agency Home and Away four of out five children still write to Father Christmas with their Christmas wish lists but worryingly, more than half of them are worried that Father Christmas might lose track of them if they spend time away from home at Christmas. I can’t imagine how awful it must be for parents knowing that their children are upset and concerned that Father Christmas might not find them as all we want this Christmas is for our children to be happy and to see them smile.
How to reroute Santa
If your children are spending time away from home this Christmas, the Reroute Santa Service is quick and easy to use. All your child needs to do is give their name, their home town and the destination where they will be spending Christmas this year and confirm that they are over the age of 13 (if they’re not they will need an adults permission to continue) and with the magic of the internet, Father Christmas will receive a notification of their destination, be it Nanny and Grandad’s house in Birmingham or Uncle Joe’s apartment in sunny Spain!
Children can watch as the website sends off their notification to Father Christmas and once it’s been sent they’ll receive a personalised letter from Father Christmas to say that he’s received it and he knows where they will be. Children can even print off the letter as a little memento.
What a lovely little way to give a child peace of mind this Christmas? I know a couple of friends who will definitely give the service a go this week which will help give their child the reassurance that they won’t be forgotten on Christmas Eve.
What do you think of the service? Are you away for Christmas? Why don’t you give the Reroute Santa service a try!
