Mummy, why is Rudolph barking?
WONDER what they think of it abroad. Not the kerfuffle over Brexit, they long ago certified us insane on that one, but the British love of Christmas theme parks.
Make that awful Christmas theme parks. Once again, families are taking to social media to share their pain. They come expecting, as per the advertisements, a winter wonderland filled with reindeer, elves, and snow.
What they get instead is muddy fields, sparsely decorated barns and, for the truly lucky, a husky wearing antlers.
At one site in Wales, which charged £57.80 for a family of four, complaints were made about an “enchanted woodland walk” full of rubble and tree stumps, and a Santa whose beard fell off.
I swear it has become a competition to see who can have the most naff experience. So much more fun than queueing up in a department store to see some scary old man distribute overpriced tat.
Just think, if/when Brexit does occur, we can sell the rotten Christmas theme parks idea to the rest of the world. Ker-ching!
