Santa with presentsMy mother took me to visit Father Christmas every year. My friends all think that it’s rather strange, but I adored this tradition. It was a magical experience for me.

Most department stores in town had a grotto with Father Christmas sitting and waiting for children to come and tell him what they wanted for Christmas. And we always left with a lovely little present in our hands!

If you’re in London next year and have a child with you, why not go and experience a grotto (link to: www.timeout.com) yourself? I would definitely go again! 😉
