Santa came out of his North Pole hideaway a few weeks early to bring Christmas joy to our Happy House kids.
And the air of excitement was almost tangible as the kids waited eagerly for the arrival of this most special of guests.
There was an intake of breath followed by screams of delight when Santa came through the gates followed by two mischievous elves - Elf , the naughty one, and Safety, the playful one,

Then it was time for Santa to distribute the children’s gift. Every child waited patiently for their name to be called and very politely shook Santa’s hand and said thank you before walking off with their bag of goodies.

Then while some stayed in the banda to dance other kids went off in groups to take a closer look at their gifts, to try on new clothes or to read their book, play a game or just to take a quick nap.

It was the most wonderful day, filled with love. The kind of day that every child will remember and will tell their own children about in years to come.
