- Father Christmas arrives in his sled complete with reindeer. This is usually the highlight for all, both big and small. He tells his tale of the eventful journey over the mountains through the snow storm and everyone is given the chance to acquaint themselves with his reindeer. All children will receive a small Christmas gift from Father Christmas.
