Daily December blogging continues, please join me up to Christmas Eve as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, our Saviour.
Last night we took our 3 kids to visit Santa at a local garden centre. The “winter wonderland” is created by volunteers by a local children’s charity, and all profits go to the charity. It is on quite a small scale, but there are no mad queues and our kids enjoyed it. There were lots of individual christmas scenes, and a quiz for the kids to complete as they went round.
Here are a few pics from last night.
Our trip last night brought back some memories of previous encounters with the man in the big red suit, some happier than others!
When you think about it, we tell children to be wary of strangers, not to accept gifts from people they don’t know….then an stranger appears, and we encourage them to sit on his knee, chat to him, and take a present! Little wonder sometimes they are scared……I promise sometimes they do actually enjoy visiting him!
The kids finished school today, so after tonight’s birthday party for my eldest, I am looking forward to a few quiet days in the run up to Christmas. Just one more carol service (at our own church) and one more Christmas meal out.
