Kiwiana Christmas








I just got back from the Mt Albert Baptist Church Annual Christmas at Rocket Park. Tired but happy. My students and I must have given out 3000 goodie bags.

Santa came and he had stripped his thick suit for a singlet because it is so hot here. He also shaved off his beard either because of the heat or he heard that in New Zealand, men shave their beard for the movember cause for men's cancer. Along the way, he went to Germany and picked up a pretty helper, Anja Blaske. The elves were happy and couldn't wait to get out of santa's trailer. I suspected the reindeers went on strike because of the heat, and santa had to borrow a farmer's quad bike.

All very entertaining, James.

My students say, it is not Santa, It is his son. I could the kids to compare a traditional santa and a Kiwi/New zealand santa. Can you spot the difference?

Looks like a lot of fun, Ann! I can not imagine Santa without his beard though. For a good cause, i guess it was worth shaven the beard off. Have a great day!

love the Santa and his elves, that trailer full of kids is adorable. that is what our santa would have to wear here. he comes to our local park in a helicopter and gets off in the normal suit and almost has a heat stroke.

I bet it's hard for Santa to arrive from the North Pole in all the heat. :)

It's nice to see that Santa and his elves can show the children a great time even in the summer heat.
