A Visit From Father Christmas


It is a bit of a tradition that Father Christmas visits the Market every year just before Christmas. You can usually tell that he is in the building from the sound of the bells on his staff, and by looking at the faces of the children who somehow aren’t quite sure what to make of him. Father Christmas likes to point out that his nephew, Santa Claus, is much more well known, although the young fellow is a little “flashy” for his taste.


But it’s not just children that get good wishes and a bit of candy – the adults get a blessing too, and perhaps a bit of an admonition to be a little “nicer” next year. Something we can all aspire to . . .
