I need some advice regarding Father Christmas - thought of going away over the festive season with my daughter and grandchildren in tow. How on earth is Father CHristmas going to come down the chimney flue on a caravan? Any help in this matter would be very much appreciated.

Same way as he manages in houses without coal fires. He uses the letterbox. He is after all a magic figure. For a caravan I would suggest hanging the stockings in the awning and pretend the reindeer are outside. Therefoe when you make the midnight visit to the ablutions...you can do the needful.

Good news for Colin I was in Debenhams Bolton yesterday when Father Christmas came down the Escalator, looking at him Mrs Clause must have had him on a strict diet over the summer as I have never seen him so thin. I will be leaving him an extra mince pie this year.

My kids when they were young wanted to send him their christmas list and has we had no fire they used to put the list in a baloon and throw it out of the window. On Christmas day they were always amased that he brought the list and balloon back and left it under the tree ( I was once questioned by the police as to why I was climbing in to peoples gardens in the middle of the night, took some explaining)

What we do to keep the magic going they are now 30 and 25 and still want the magic especialy the stockings hung up, and leave a mince pie and Tiamaria ( used to be sherry but he does not like that now) with a carrot for Rudolf. They always go out to see the pieces of carrot left on the lawn with Rudolfs teeth marks,
