    The best Christmas show in Sydney town was at the David Jones department store. It was a veritable yuletide wonderland complete with Santa, his elves, screaming infants/toddlers and so much color and magic.

    Early to mid 1980s, the top floor of the Co-op department store on Upper Parliament Street in Nottingham - they had a Father Christmas as well. I remember visiting him at least once.

    Me & my brother went to the Santa's Grotto at Kendals in Manchester (now House Of Fraser) in the early 1980s.

    I have always wondered who exactly played the Father Christmas when they appeared in the stores. I assume that it was some retired former staff member who had some time on his hands and decided to earn a bit of money by doing that.
