Mother Christmas arrives to the Holiday Place for Secret Santa
As Christmas gets closer and closer, during this year's festive season staff at The Holiday Place have already received their Xmas gifts with a surprise visit from Miss Santa, in charge of giving out this year's Secret Santa gifts to staff members.
Bringing on a little holiday cheer for the festive season and spreading around the wholesome fun side of the Christmas spirit; this afternoon the team of employees at The Holiday Place were graced by the unexpected visit of one of Santa's helpers, Miss Santa herself, who came to hand out the gifts staff exchanged as part of this year Secret Santa, and to set them dares before they could collect their presents.
Miss Santa, a member of the staff herself, got all dressed up for her mission and cheered on with the usual "Ho ho ho" before entering the room and establishing the game rules for the present give-out. Armed with a little box of dares prepared by her little helpers, Leena and Sheena, (a couple of lovely staff members, who wrote the naughty challenges staff members had to perform in order to receive the gifts) she called out the names of the Santa "victims" who had to stick their hand in the box and randomly pick a dare.
The dares saw a member of staff challenged to sing a Christmas carol in front of the Operations team, while another had to do star jumps in front of the whole of the Reservations floor. Others got luckier and received a relaxing massage or a cheeky peck on the cheek while others had to run around the whole building or act as a fish. One thing was for sure, everyone had a big laugh and this year at The Holiday Place they were all thankful for their colleagues' Santa gifts and for Miss Santa's cheeky dares which made them all smile!
