Two more sleeps and he’s on his way

TWO more sleeps. Can’t you just feel the excitement?

The final countdown has commenced and’s reporter at the North Pole, Jack Frost Jnr, has confirmed that Santa is adding the final touches to his plans to travel around the world to bring joy and happiness to millions of children everywhere.

The last of the toys are being carefully wrapped by the elves in the bustling workshop, the reindeer are dozing all day to ensure they are fresh and ready for the big journey and Mrs Claus is packing the piping hot vegetable soup and sandwiches (hard boiled egg are Santa’s favourite) in case any boys or girls forget to leave out some milk and cookies or maybe a mince pie.

Santa is expected to arrive in Killarney shortly after midnight so he has advised the boys and girls – and their mums and dads – to be in bed early and be ready to wake up first thing on Christmas morning to see what he has left for them.

And Jack Frost Jnr can also confirm that there are no boys or girls in Killarney on Santa’s Naughty list this year so they can all expect their dreams to come true this Christmas.

Santa has a special message to any boys or girls who won’t be in their own homes this Christmas – it doesn’t matter because, with his magical powers, he will find them wherever they are.

Santa’s met some of the lovely smiling children on his last stop-off at his winter log cabin at Killarney Outlet Centre and he collected their last minute lists and wished them all a very happy, peaceful and loving Christmas.
