T and Father Christmas


T was one and a bit when she first met Father Christmas.  She cried and let’s just say, made a bit of a commotion in her nappy and it wasn’t wee.  You get the picture.

1st meet with santa

I doubt if Father Christmas would want to sit too close to her had he known what happened.


Then my husband bought her a DVD and introduced her to Raymond Brigg’s Father Christmas.  She absolutely loved it.  I first wrote about it here and back then I even wondered whether he was a bad influence on my daughter.  She still says blimming sometimes and still loves to watch it over and over again.  I guess that DVD prepared her for her next meeting with the jolly/grumpy old man.  This time she was two and a bit.

I’m happy to report that no commotion happened.  This time she didn’t cry, but was really shy and he could could hardly hear her little replies (more like whispers) to his questions.


Yesterday, I wanted to buy some additional Christmas decors and decided to go to Trelawney Garden Centre in Wadebridge where they have lovely stuff, not knowing that Father Christmas was already receiving visitors.  So little T along with her best-friend F had the chance to have an early-meeting with him.  I don’t know whether it was because she’s older now or because her best friend was with her, this time she gamely answered his questions and nothing unpleasant happened, which is good because she doesn’t wear nappies anymore.

Hope everyone has a lovely week planned ahead of them! 🙂


  1. I’m glad this year’s visit to Father Christmas was a success for T & F! Also, I love that it’s snowing on your blog. Lol! 🙂

    • This was an impromptu Father Christmas meeting. T and F have another scheduled one with another Father Christmas. Hahaha. As for the snow, hey one can always dream! 🙂 It only snowed in Cornwall once, so it might as well snow in my blog for the whole month of December! :)) Hope you’re enjoying your trip Samantha! 🙂

      • LOL! 😀 I wonder if they’ll be able to tell the difference between the Father Christmases. It snowed while I was in Seoul, Dean! You should hop over there! 🙂 The trip is awesome!! I’ll be sad to go back home on Wednesday.

        • I doubt they’ll know! Hahaha. I’m glad you’re enjoying your trip. Always wanted to visit Seoul! 🙂 Someday! 🙂

  2. Brilliant! I have a great photo (to blog about at some point!) of what happened when we put the wee girl on Santa’s lap this year… 🙂 Glad this years meeting was more successful! #WhatstheStory #MagicMoments

  3. What a lovely post Dean. It must be so weird going to see Father Christmas for the first time. I’m sure it helped T had her best friend with her, they’re adorable together – I remember that post. Such great photos and I love your snowy blog. Thanks for sharing with #whatsthestory

    • I guess most kids cry when they see Father Christmas for the first time. Must be weird to see an old man in a costume! 🙂 Hope you guys have recovered from your tiring trip in Bruge.

  4. lol lol so pleased there was no incidents for you this time!! in all fairness santa is quite a strange fella!

    thanks for linking up with #MagicMoments xx
