The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has officially announced that it is safe for Santa to visit this year.
Monti and lots of other children have written to him to make sure they won’t be missing out this Christmas. They have also asked how to keep Santa and the whole family safe.
Boris Johnson replied by saying:
Many thanks for your letter which raises the very important question of whether Father Christmas will be able to deliver presents this year in spite of Coronavirus.
I know millions of other children are asking the same thing. Just to make sure, I have put in a call to the North Pole and I can tell you Father Christmas is ready and raring to go, as are Rudolph and all of the other reindeer.
The Chief Medical Officer has asked me to tell you that, provided Father Christmas behaves himself in his usual responsible way and works quickly and safely, there are no risks to your health or his.
Leaving hand sanitiser by the cookies is an excellent idea to help prevent the spread of the virus – and using it yourself, and washing your hands regularly, is exactly the kind of thing that will get you and your friends on the nice list.
Thank you again for your letter and have a very Merry Christmas.
Get the cookies and carrots at the ready because Santa WILL be visiting!Embed from Getty Images Add a comment
