A special visitor was on his way. With everyone on the dancefloor, jingle bells rang out at what seemed hundreds of decibels from the mouth of every child. This was followed by 'Where are you Santa?' All of a sudden, the sound of a bell could be heard from the back of the room. It was Santa Claus himself! He made his way to the Grotto with help from his head elf and sat down with a thump! Everyone enjoyed getting their gifts and having their photos taken with Santa. The younger kids being in particular awe of him. With Santa having ran through his Nice list this year, he returned to the North Pole, having really enjoyed his time at Norton House. The Children's Christmas Party was now in full swing as it was brother v brother on the air hockey, the eldest taking the spoils. Big Screen Games could be heard around the hotel as entire families discovered the 4 player setting! Mum and Dad against the kids. The younger ones enjoyed writhing around in the ballpool, covering themselves completely, much to the astonishment of some parents.
