Are you counting down the days until the jolly old fellow visits?

Santa's Advent Village takes you on a magical festive journey through a Christmas wonderland. Parents and children alike will just love sneaking around the village under the cover of night, taking in all the sights and sounds of this special Yuletide environment.

As children around the world send their letters and wish-lists to Santa, they are carried to the North Pole by the spirit of Christmas. The letters whizz though the cold night air and swoosh into the big funnel at the main sorting office, where the elves give them to Santa and start work on the presents. Occasionally, a letter is blown off course by the blustery arctic wind and ends up in the village below! Usually the elves will collect it and pass it on to Santa, but they are all so busy making toys, games and Christmas puddings this year that they don't have time!

The lost letters mean there is not enough festive spirit in the village and it must be restored. If there is not enough festive spirit on Christmas Eve, Santa and his reindeer will not be able to fly to deliver all the presents. Help Santa by hunting for his lost letters and posting them in his big red mailbox at the sorting office. As you help, every day through December, new seasonal items will be restored to the village until it is once again bristling with festive fun.
