by Santa stops day be­fore busy

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

WITH just 24 more sleeps un­til Christ­mas, Santa Claus — one of the most pop­u­lar men this time of year – has been busy vis­it­ing all the good boys and girls of Plump­ton.

He has been re­turn­ing to Plump­ton Mar­ket­place for more than 15 years and while most of the kids are nice, Santa had a few chil­dren to add to his naughty list.

“I had a young boy who was im­pec­ca­bly dressed, he came up and sat on my lap, stared straight at the cam­era and stuck his mid­dle fin­ger up at it,” Santa said. “Most of the chil­dren are well be­haved, but Santa can get thrown up on from time to time.”

While tra­di­tional toys were trend­ing again this year — lots of boys and girls are ask­ing for Bar­bies or Thomas the Tank en­gines — dig­i­tal re­quests were also pop­u­lar in­clud­ing selfie sticks.

“Kids have been ask­ing for Bar­bies or for Thomas the Tank, but iPads and com­puter games are al­ways pop­u­lar,” Santa said.

Santa will be ap­pear­ing at Plump­ton Mar­ket­place from 10am ev­ery­day.
