Stumbled, twists and turns, Melbourne has entered Christmas month...

And Christmas 2020 is destined to be different!

A photo of a child and Santa Claus recently posted on social media by social queen Roxy Jacenko deeply confirms this.

The mother wrote: "What will a picture with Santa Claus look like during the pandemic?"

She attached a photo of her two children and Santa Claus about 1.5 meters away.

Fans thought this photo was funny, and the star Laura Hazzouri even said: "This must be a joke."

A netizen joked: "This distance exceeds 1.5 meters, Santa Claus is very cautious."

One lady said that this was a "sorrowful and sad" day.She added: "I hope that in the years to come, we will laugh when we look back on the past."

The most memorable year

In fact, every Christmas Australian parents like to take their children to look at Christmas windows with different themes, and then take a picture with Santa Claus as a souvenir.

But under the new crown epidemic, can I still take photos with Santa Claus and me?

Photographer Meredith Bauer said that after the outbreak of the new crown pandemic, they began to discuss plans for safe photography this year with the theme of Christmas.

"Fortunately, this year we can really provide Christmas shooting activities."

"At this time last year, we were still fighting against wildfires. Who would have thought that we could still deal with the new crown challenge this year? But we have adapted, haven't we?"

Ms. Bauer said: “We must use props very creatively to maintain a safe social distance, to ensure everyone’s safety while still having fun.”

In order to maintain a safe social distance of 1.5 meters, the photographer specially arranged a Christmas table photography theme: quite a feeling of having a picnic on the beach with Santa Claus, and customers can legitimately keep a good distance from Santa and take pictures.

At the same time, all the photo props and scenery need to be sterilized materials. The photography team also gave this sterilization process a very interesting name'Santa-tiser'.

And Santa Claus said that these Christmas photos remind people that this is a very challenging and unusual year.

"I want to say to all children that you must save this special photo so that you can show it to your children and even your grandchildren. This is a year worth remembering."

Photographer Gillian Cox said that it took a lot of time to develop a safe photo plan during the COVID-XNUMX period.

"Including the Santa Claus in the photo, he will keep a social distance with customers. Nor will he provide props like in previous years.But we welcome customers to bring their own such as Santa hats or surfboards. "

"We will also provide photo activities without Santa Claus for those who are more physically vulnerable."

She said that they will also provide interesting photos with the theme of the new crown to commemorate this year.

"Our scene this year includes a complete Christmas tree. Santa will hide behind the tree and look at the waving family."

"We can also ask Santa Claus to hold a ruler with a distance of 1.5 meters from his family, or wear a mask."

"The seemingly clumsy picture of Santa Claus represents the truest year and is full of fun."
