A website rather than an app Reroute Santa addresses the fear children have when they travel on holiday over Christmas – how will Santa be able to find them? On this website children can inform Santa of where they will be over Christmas and receive a letter back from Himself saying he’s made of a note of where they will be and that Rudolph thinks there’s a great landing strip for the sleigh nearby. Perfect!
