As reported to me by a mum in the clinic yesterday: her sister’s children were devastated after being taken to the local shopping centre to see Santa – just in time to see him being stretchered off into a waiting ambulance (he’d obviously had a funny turn).
I don’t remember ever particularly believing in Santa (I mean, I always knew all my presents were from mum and dad, aunts and grandparents etc), but I’ve seen it in little kids so I know the belief really is there. How traumatic a sight would Santa on a stretcher be?!
(I’m afraid I laughed at the thought. But do hope that he’s OK).
