Did your child ever freak out when it was finally his turn to sit on Santa's lap? Or did you ever skip the whole experience because the line was too long?
One tech company is pitching a way for kids to meet with Santa that will avoid those problems.
Video conferencing provider Paltalk.com has figured out how to let children speak with Santa Claus via video chat. These video visits will run every day, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Pacific time, starting Dec. 15. Families can log on to see and talk with Santa (children are supposed to have an adult with them at the time). A company press release says "the video chat room is constantly monitored by administrators to ensure the safety and well-being of all users."
The service is free. To access it, log on to this link.
