Tel Aviv-Yafo, December 23 – After a year like 2020, even Father Christmas needs the opportunity to let down his hair (and beard) as he travels around the world to deliver Christmas presents.

In fact, four talented volleyball-playing Santa Clauses stopped for a game of volleyball at Tel Aviv-Yafo's Gordon Beach ahead of the holiday, taking advantage of the winter sun and outdoor culture in the city.

Tel Aviv-Yafo's reputation as a hub of outdoor activity has been strengthened during the COVID-19 outbreak, with residents and visitors overwhelmingly swapping indoor entertainment for the city's sandy beach, long promenade, picturesque parks and iconic boulevards.

Sharon Landes-Fischer, Acting CEO of Tel Aviv Global & Tourism: "The past year has emphasized the importance of enjoying the outdoors. With 320 days of sun every year, the warm climate of Tel Aviv-Yafo lends itself perfectly to open air entertainment – even at Christmas time. Tel Aviv-Yafo wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and we can't wait to be reunited in 2021."
