The last two weeks, we’ve been visiting Santa at our neighbour Collins Square. This involved discussing road safety before leaving the service and walking to Collins Square to take pictures with him. The children were extremely excited to go and as soon as they saw him, they asked Santa plenty of questions such as “how do your reindeers fly?” “where are your elves?” “what are you doing tonight?” to which Santa relied “my reindeers are magical” “my elves are busy making presents for all the good boys and girls around the world” and “I’m going back to North Pole tonight.” We’ve also experienced the gift of giving to support the homeless and at risk youth of Melbourne. The children gave the wrapped gifts to the lovely ladies at Collins Square to put under the giving tree. We also took photos under the giant Christmas tree there. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas with lots of love and happiness J
