End of the year is a special time with Christmas cheer and New Year just round the corner.
Malls wear a such celebratory look during the festive season that it is sort of imperative to go to these malls even if you don’t have to shop. Yesterday, I was at Hamley’s at Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj to greet and meet Santa at the Google Hangout organised by the store for all the three cities (Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore- it is where Hamley’s is present). It was a perfect evening and the kids enjoyed a lot at the Hamley’s store which was decked up for Christmas. The store is spread over two floors and Google hangout was organised on the first floor. Kids were pretty excited to see Santa Claus talking to them and answering their questions. Santa Claus too enjoyed talking with the kids and he promised to get them the gifts they had asked for.
Kids had really interesting questions for Santa. One of the kids asked, Why is his beard so long? another kid asked ,When does he get free time? How many elves does he have? Who is his wife? and Where does he live? The answers were as interesting as the questions and Santa said,”I never get free time as I have so many wish lists and I am busy distributing gifts.” Then he said that his wife’s name was Mrs. Santa and all the kids burst out laughing.
Children at the store also wrote letters to Santa and asked him for several gifts like Lego, i Phone 6, jewellery set, drone etc. The staff at Hamley’s too engaged the kids with their magic tricks, flying drones and the hover board.
The décor of the store was simply outstanding with a huge Santa Claus standing at the entrance of the store which became a perfect backdrop for the kids to get clicked with friends and parents.
I hope, this Christmas all of us get what we wish for. Dear Santa, are you listening?
