Santa and Zeb Maher, 4, were doing the Christmas countdown in Gol Gol’s Wilkinson Park this week … and it was soon just one sleep to go.
They shared the excite-ment and anticipation of a festive season that has seen Santa still keep up a busy round of appearances across Sunraysia.
Not even COVID re-strictions have stopped Santa criss-crossing the Murray River and the good word is his sleigh and reindeers were the all-clear to work through Christmas Eve to deliver gifts of joy.
On Christmas morning, Zeb and children every-where will eagerly unwrap presents while Santa is probably looking forward to a well-earned rest.
