We can’t stop smiling at this cheeky Santa: a grumpy old grouch who hides a heart of gold. Are you looking forward to Christmas Eve? Father Christmas isn’t! “Bloomin’ reindeer! Bloomin’ Christmas!”, he mutters as he gets ready to deliver presents. He’s not feeling jolly at all! But after his long sleigh ride round the world on Christmas night, something cheers him up at last… See how Christmas works its magic on this gruff old man in a funny and touching classic story.
