Kindness made Santa's Christmas

I have been a Santa for the last six years -- from Tallaght to Dundrum -- and now in the city centre.

I am writing to you because a gentleman was watching and listening to me talking with children and their parents and, when there was no queue, he came in to the grotto and said I was doing a great job and I must be very tired.

He shook my hand and in it he left a €20 note. It was the kindest thing that anyone has ever done for me in my life. I am writing to you in the hope this gentleman will see my letter of thanks.
