Competition: Where’s Santa?!

By Friday, October 9, 2015 413


The build up to Christmas has started. There’s no escaping from it. It’s October, the shops are stocking stockings and decorations. This means good ol’ Saint Nick is going to have to get back to work pretty soon. Our question is… What has he been doing for the last year? Has he gone somewhere tropical this whole time? Is he backpacking through Europe? Maybe he stopped over at Disneyland, the possibilities are endless.


That’s why we’re going to leave it to you to figure out where he might have been. Type in the comments section below where your answer to the question ‘Where has Santa been spending his time all year’ and the most creative, funny or obscure answer could win you one of our beautiful 7ft 2in Warm White Blossom Trees.


The competition will close at midnight on Sunday 18/10/2015 and we will announce our favourite answer and the winner the following day. We will also be awarding a 10% discount to the top ten answers to be used on their next order with us.

Good Luck!

    Santa spent January in the Caribbean on a jetski getting sunburnt, and was regularly seen in the media having swapped his reindeer for two little dogs called Squiddly and Diddly. Later in the year, Santa trimmed his beard to a more manageable length and can now be seen on our tvs every weekend on the run up to Christmas alongside Cheryl and co, tormenting parents across the land who have to sit through hour upon hour of bad singing!
    No need to worry though. The tv show will be over by Christmas, just in time for the big man to don his suit and boots, and work his magic for children everywhere!

    After spending the last three years chasing a Hobbit round in early December, this year Santa has been over to the Dark Side to make sure his presents are out of this world and have “Star” quality…….

    Santa told me he was on holiday in Grenada, the spice island of the Caribbean.

    Where else would he go for all the spices for those wonderful Christmas drinks.

    Despite everything Santa likes to keep warm, the red coat for winter along with the spiced drinks makes sure that he is able to deliver all those Christmas pressies to us good girls and boys.

    Merry Christmas one and all
