Over the coming days, Fixando expects to 'arrange' for around a thousand Santa Clauses who can "guarantee a response to customers looking to bring some additional magic to Christmas events," according to a report by Notícias ao Minuto.

Between November 1 and December 6, the demand for Father Christmas for events and parties grew by 20%, compared to the same period in 2021, and "about 83% of requests registered this year did not get a response".

Fixando's analysis also reveals that it is "in the district of Lisbon (43%) that the highest number of requests for this Christmas service is concentrated, followed by Porto (17%), Aveiro (10%) and Braga (8%)".

"Average income of €135"

Alice Nunes, new business director at Fixando, points out that "this is an attractive opportunity for those who like to work with children ", and the requests for hiring Santa Clauses translate into "an income average of 135 euros per service, with an average duration of 2 hours".

Of the registered requests, 45% are for personal/family Christmas parties, followed by 15% for company events, 10% for school parties, 9% for trade, and 6% for Christmas fairs.
