Who Is the Real Santa Claus?

Characters: Melchior, Befana, Pascual (a new character from Ecuador) and Santa Claus.

Come meet Santas from around the world who will tell you how they celebrate the holidays in their home countries. Enjoy a jolly tour of world holiday traditions! Who knows? Maybe you’ll discover who the “real” Santa is!

Meet Pascual, our new Santa Claus all the way from Ecuador. Inspired by Christmas stories and traditions from South America, Ecuadorian author Miraya Bayancela has written a story that will immerse you in holiday traditions from the world over.

Meet our Christmas characters—virtually! Appearing live, our four Santa Clauses will meet your students and tell their stories, on-screen. Students will also be able to ask questions and speak to the real Santa Claus!
Our interpreter-guides will moderate the activity and make sure everything goes off without a hitch!
