Modern Santa For City Centre
Christchurchs city centre will see a new, funky Santa along the City Mall this year.
He will appear in the mall from 13 December until Christmas moving to a different site each day.
Christmas music will fill the mall from his travelling grotto.
He will have a special summer-grade red suit and a goatee beard, instead of the traditional full beard. He will also be proficient on roller blades, too.
He will have his own portable grotto and will be running competitions and taking Christmas orders. Hell have plenty of helium balloons and cookies to give away and also have cute elves.
The whole Mall show is part of the City Councils Christmas city centre decoration programme.
