Thought it would be nice to have a christmas activities thread
Thought about taking DCs to the North pole - did anyone do it last year - what was it like - santa any good , is the ice skating for a 5 yo

Also more for adults older DC saw this Trinity street 16th December which looked lovely

Mill Road Winter Fair is usually good

We did the North Pole last year with 7yo and just 5yo. Unless you're a good skater, it's worth getting a penguin that they can push along and keep them upright. Waterproof trousers, or a change of trousers also a good idea!

Expensive but memorable, I'd say.

Do you have to pay extra for penguins
Yes I loved the winter fair - although I am not sure the DCs enjoyed as much? Any views on the best santa - noticed there is one at the tourist infomation office this year

I think you pay to reserve a penguin, but if you're off peak you might get lucky.

Thanks, DiskFix, I'll see if I can get DD along to that.

Hmm, age 12 and up to take part? She's not a bad singer herself...
