What Does Santa Do on Boxing Day? by Becky Plenderleith

Does he put his sore feet up? Does he sleep off the mince pies he scoffed on Christmas Eve? Does he give Rudolph and his team a well-earned slap on the antlers? Or perhaps he packs up his sleigh in storage for another year? Er nope !! To be blunt, Santa's had too many sprouts and he needs some fresh air (much to the relief of Mrs Santa!). Fortunately, he's also still got work to do; you see, it's not just children who like to see lots of shiny presents under their Christmas tree ...there are lots of little animals also rubbing their paws with glee. From the megaphone for the shy lion cub, to the electric toothbrush for the shark, to the fancy dress box for the chameleon, to the tap shoes for the foal, there's a thoughtful gift for everyone. Hmmmm - but what exactly is Santa going to give Rudolph?
