Families across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire were waking up today to discover that a very welcome vistor had entered their homes through the night - as Santa Claus dropped off presents across the region.
Mr Claus, age unknown, worked through the night to visit the homes of children (young and old) and deliver presents for Christmas Day.
He was assisted in his efforts by a team of reindeer and a sleigh, who worked through the night to make sure nobody was left disappointed.
Today, Mr Claus was enjoying a rest at his home in Lapland, where he was beginning to tuck into the many glasses of sherry and mince pies gathered from peoples homes through the night.
He told us: “You should never drink and sleigh so I save all of the treats people leave me and enjoy them over the next few days before the hard work begins for next year.
“I hope everyone enjoys the presents I have got them. Clearly we are starting to come out of the recession so I’ve been a little bit more generous this year.”
Across the region families were this morning opening their presents, getting ready for a big Christmas lunch before settling down for the Queen at 3pm - followed by the obligatory afternoon snooze.
WE WISH ALL OF OUR READERS A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
