Christmas Is Coming!
Rumour has it that Christmas is on its way and to welcome Christmas,oh and a certain jolly fellow dressed in red,to our area,the town threw a big Christmas countdown celebration.
There were reindeer,real ones,the cast of the pantomime,which is Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs,Fireworks,groups singing and of course Santa.
We went down with our friends and one of the main things we wanted to do was to see the reindeers.
Well it was jam packed full!We walked round the age of the crowd and tried to gingerly squeeze our way into a spot where we could just see a bit of a reindeer,any little glimpse of a reindeer would do.
The cheer went up and we stood on our tiptoes and craned our necks hoping to catch sight of one of Santas magical reindeer,people started moving and we managed to edge closer to the front,this is it I thought,
"Are they there?" I said to the boys.
"Er they have gone" said a voice.
We turned to see a security guard looking at us.
We had missed them,Santa's reindeer had gone!
As we stood trying to think of something to cheer the boys up,we noticed people moving barriers and after a chat with the security man we found out that the reindeers were coming back and you could go to see them.
One look around though told us that the que was going to be long,very long,nearly impossibly long!
We stood talking and then realised that the barriers were being pointed in our direction and as we watched the barriers were built right up to where we were stood.
Blow me down,we were first in the que!!!Even the security guard was laughing.What a bit of luck!
Walking through those barriers was daunting,everybody was watching but we were so excited!Chipmunk and his friend stroked the reindeer and I took a hasty photo and then we went.
What a thing to remember...
We were the first people to stroke Santa's reindeer!Yay!
And the reindeer were in question were Dasher and Prancer.
