Santa Cruise

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a Santa Cruise. A one hour trip down the Sheffield canal from Victoria Quays in a beautifully decorated boat, where everyone gets in the Christmas spirit and even the driver sports a reindeer hat.

We usually go in a large group of assorted kids, grandkids, friends and their kids and grandchildren. Yesterday there were 16 of us, and the little ones love being at the front of the boat waiting for Santa.

Of course, Santa arrives

and everyone gets a present from his sack. The adults get a couple of glasses of mulled wine and a mince pie. There's biscuits, juice and colouring things for the kids and we all have a great time. The weather was great, cold but sunny, and there was the added bonus of ice on the canal for the boat to break through. There's even a bar if the mulled wine isn't enough. Lots of opportunity to have a chat with Santa and have your photo taken.
