12 days of Christmas - skignz Online Advent Calendar

This year skignz used an Online Advent Calendar for the 12 Days of Christmas to provide you with information on the top people, places and things in the world. 

These ranged from holiday destinations to restaurants, hotels to events, all of which we believe would be suitably enhanced further if you used skignz. 

Revealing even more information that's both useful and interesting certainly enhances these wonderful places and their environment. 

The content could be historical, simply useful, reveal offers, show videos and also allow you, the visitor, to leave a small digital note, almost like signing a guestbook!

Take alook for yourself here...

The uptake we had was quite staggering, from an email list of just over 1,800 people, we had in excess of 900 people access the Online Advent Calendar, with over 500 accessing the interesting and useful content we provided. I

f you are reading this and you have decided to visit one of the places selected, please do share with us your experience and don't forget to use skignz whilst you are there!

Until next Christmas, may we take the opportunity to wish you all the very best for 2018 and a Happy, prosperous and healthy New Year.

12 'skignz' Days of Christmas - An experience your children will NEVER forget!

Tomorrow sees skignz launch their 12 Days of Christmas... leading right up to some 'Special skignz Magic Dust' we have 'sprinkled across the sky', right around the world for Christmas Eve.

This is especially so for those of you will young children who are still 'believers'

We 'believe', so we have developed two very special 'skignz' to help you get those little kiddie winkies to bed (no mean feat when their are 'off the scale' excited).

We at skignz also believe that: 

"If a picture speaks a thousand words... and a video speaks a million... then what does an experience represent, a billion? a trillion? or is it unquantifiable... beyond words..."

What is the 12 'skignz' Days of Christmas?
We have created an 'Online Advent Calendar' that you can visit each day at the following link 

Please don't forget, it's like any other 'Advent Calendar' in as much as there's no peeking on the days that are yet to come! (you can go back and look at previous days though).

What are we trying to achieve?
Every child has a wonderment around Christmas, Santa, his elves, the whole mystery. One of the customs is to put out a drink and mince pie for Santa, but since 1957 NORAD have provided children across the globe with regular updates on Santa's progress.

More recently a website ( was created that many a child keeps regular watch on Christmas Eve... all wanting to know when Santa will be in their Country, region, town and street.

Two things happen at this point... the children are 'off the scale with excitement' and parents try to usher them to bed as he's 'getting close'. remember from when you were a child, that Santa only delivers his presents when you (children) are fast asleep.

Ok then, how do you 'Calm the children down' and get them off to sleep in a reasonable time?

How are we going to do this?
Each day you will open a window and it will provide you with a little bit more information on 'How you are going to BLOW your children's minds on Christmas Eve, yet be such a powerful experience that they will WANT to go to bed IMMEDIATELY and go to sleep....!"

We will lead you on a 'step by step' process of downloading skignz, setting up an account, right through to placing the 'Special Santa skignzand how you will 'reveal' them to your children on Christmas Eve....

Where do the special 'skignz' come in?
If you follow all the steps in the lead up to Christmas Eve, which includes setup, checking and testing you will have created two virtual 'signs in the sky'.

The first is a Picture of Santa's Sleigh flying away into the distance...

The second one is a special 'Note from Santa', that is personalised with your childrens names on... explaining that he's just flown over (where you are and where you have placed the skignz and intend to show the children them).

It also says that he noticed that 'Lexi & Gab's' (insert your own children's names) are still awake and that he can't deliver their presents until they are fast asleep, encouraging them to go straight to bed, love from Santa.

*Please note that the two images above are actual images taken through the skignz app.

Then what?
You let your children follow the Santa through the NORAD website until he's close by where you are, then you go to the door/window to see if they can see him. 

At that point you say "maybe if we use our SmartPhone or Tablet it will help us see him". 

You then 'open the skignz App' and pan around like you are videoing the sky, where you will see the Sleigh riding away with Santa waving (We highly recommend you video or take pics of your childrens faces when they see this)

Then next pan across to where you have placed the second skign... 'Santa's Note' where you can read that Santa has left them a note and either let them read it or read it to them...

The children won't be able to see the skignz without the SmartPhone or Tablet, so you can say that Santa sent you a special camera to see him ;-)

And after that... when they are no doubt speechless... take them to bed!

We hope you enjoy this little magical experience we have created for any child anywhere in the world whose Parents or Guardians have taken the time to set this up for them... 

Afterall Christmas is all about children, especially those that believe... even the slightly older ones may question their beliefs ha ha ha or is that HO HO HO....

We hope you have a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
The Santa skignz team

PS We ask just one thing of those of you who have read this.. 

Please share with others across Social Media, text, phone calls, messneger etc... , so many more children get the chance to experience this as well. 

We want to reach as many children as possible across the globe.
