Santa Tram 2020

From: December 1, 2020

To: December 31, 2020



It is with great sadness that we must announce that we have received a letter direct from the North Pole from the big man in the red suit himself.

Unfortunately due to the Covid19 coronavirus situation worldwide, Santa has been forced to hugely cut back his number of personal appearances around the world ahead of Christmas this year. This is to ensure that he and his team and especially his magical reindeer can try their hardest to stay well so they are able to carry out Christmas deliveries as best they can this year.

Santa said that he is really sad not to be meeting all the children as usual this year, but he and his team still look forward to getting your letters at the north pole as usual. The elves will be keeping an eye out as always to ensure all children are being good using their secret cameras hidden all around the world !!

Santa says he hopes to return next year if it is safe to do so.
