Plenty of fun for everyone
SANTA CLAUS made a grand entrance last Saturday at Powerscourt Estate, Enniskerry, where he was brought by horse-drawn carriage, giving the reindeer a bit of a break for the day.
Crowds of eager children waited in the artificial ‘snow’ provided by Avoca Handweavers especially to make Santa feel a bit more at home, and everyone was wrapped up in their winter woolies even though the day was very clear and bright.
A choir of children entertained everyone with Christmas carols, and added to the festive spirit, while many of the eager children wore ‘Santa’ hats in red and white to pay tribute to the special guest of the day.
He arrived in a beautiful black carriage, with two men wearing black suits and top hats taking he reigns and a magnificent brown horse pulling the oldfashioned vehicle.
Santa was thrilled to be there, and all the boys and girls were amazed to see their hero in the flesh. He works very hard at this time of year and tries to get around to pay a visit to all the towns and villages in Ireland, he said, to remind children to be well behaved and make sure that he has the right orders for their gifts.
