A story in the Express today about a cranky Santa amused me (not so much with the part about the ailing parent).
Santa, played by fireman Bobby Arjoonsingh, later said he waited for the children to come out and meet him for a full five minutes in the blistering sun.
When he did meet them there was no hearty “Ho, ho ho!” greeting. Arjoonsingh said this was because he was tired from having to tend to an ailing parent all night.
He walked past the children ringing a bell and after spending some time with them distributing gifts he left quickly as if to say, “Christmas will have to wait until December.”
