Santa Claus advises Irish children to go to bed early tonight, no peeping and no lego on the floor
Ahead of tonight's big trip, Santa tells us how Mrs Claus gives him a 'big feed' and if Rudolph misbehaves, his cousin Randolph is waiting in the wings.
Santa is urging Irish children to get to bed early tonight – and no peeping.
Speaking ahead of his mammoth global journey tonight, a relaxed Santa also urged Irish children to leave just one mince pie and a cup of tea under the tree.
Explaining his choice of food, Santa told how Mrs Claus felt he was treated a little too well last year and urged him to cut back.
Asked how he was feeling ahead of a busy night delivering presents around the world, Santa said: “I’m absolutely stunning.
“The time has flown in – just one more sleep ho ho ho. Time really flies doesn’t it?”
Mrs Claus plays an important role in the preparations for her husband – and she will be making sure he’s well fed before he heads out this evening.
“Mrs Claus is a fantastic woman – indeed as all women are – and she will have something ready. Our usual feed is milk and a mince pie, and cocoa as well. But she’ll have a special feed ready before the trip.
“Mrs Claus – she wags her finger when she says like a lot of women do – said that after last year, people were too good. They left out too much to drink.
“So she told me no more drink. A cup of milk, or maybe some lemonade, or some tea. But no more drink.
“So this year, I would like a cup of tea and a mince pie.”
Speaking about Rudolph, Santa said he has been training well ahead of tonight.
“Rudolph is doing well – the only thing though is that he’s getting old.
“And he can misbehave a big.
“But I have his cousin Randolph on call. So if Rudolph can’t do it, Randolph can.
And in a special message to Irish children, Santa urges them all to get to bed early tonight.
“I’ll be starting my trip very shortly.
“I hope you all have a lovely Christmas.
“Early to bed, no peeping, no traps.
“And by the way, no lego on the floor... that’s a very sore thing,” he added.
