Meeting Father Christmas

All lit up for Christmas

I remember the first time I took my two girls to see Father Christmas at a local shopping centre. It didn’t matter to them that the reindeer were obviously made of plastic, as was the snow. For them this really was a little slice of Lapland right here where they lived. They dutifully joined the queue and waited patiently (well after all, impatient children get nothing on Christmas morning do they?) until they could enter behind that large red curtain to meet Santa himself.

The eldest was bold and spoke up clearly, the youngest at only around three was completely tongue-tied. I don’t know if they have remembered it at all but I will never forget it. I spent the whole 3 or so minutes with a very large lump in my throat and they told everyone they met all about it for days afterwards. Even now Father Christmas is a figure who is taken very seriously and although, obviously, they are way beyond believing in him, we still have to put out brandy, a mince pie and a carrot, in the fireplace each and every Christmas Eve. (You know, just in case!).

To help celebrate Christmas for all of us, DFS – the UK sofas and soft furnishings specialist have pulled together an amazing Christmas prize draw which allows you to win a 3-day stay in Lapland. Forget plastic reindeer you will meet the real thing!

The prize includes UK flights, sleigh and snowmobile rides, games with the Elves in their Igloo, a full-on Festive Meal, and of course, a meeting with Santa himself!

There are also 3 Sony home entertainment systems; including a 42” HD LED TV and a Sony 3D Blu-ray disc player for runners up.

In addition as part of the DFS Christmas Delivery campaign and in partnership with Arthur Christmas, DFS also guarantees your sofa to be delivered before Christmas on all orders placed before 25th November 2012.
