Santa's Around the World

Hawaiian Santa
Christmas is just a week away and children around the world are standing in line watching and waiting to see the man of the hour, St. Nick. Many locations celebrate with Santa as the main event and his appearance brings joy and wonder to the young and old. Read about the fun and fantastic things Jolly Old Saint Nick is doing leading up to the big night.
Santa in London
Every year Harrods’s in London holds a Christmas Parade. Crowds gather to catch a glimpse of Santa and Mrs. Claus waving from a carriage.  London welcomes the holiday with a scattering of twinkle lights and a lot of cheer.  Head here and check in at any of the Best Hotels in London where you will find fabulous perks and benefits.  The Four Seasons London at Park Lane is one option.  This splendid hotel was named Hotel of the Year for London in 2012-2013.  WhatAHotel! is also a Preferred Partner of Four Seasons which promotes our mutual commitment to exceptional quality. 
Santa in Venice
In other parts of Europe, Santa can be found doing a multitude of things and having some crazy adventures.  Sweden's Santa likes to go for a competition sleigh ride during the Winter Games in Gallivare.  In Denmark you will find 150 Santas dressed up and hanging out at the oldest running amusement park in the country and in Venice, Santa takes to the canals and distributes candy from a special Christmas gondola.  Europe seems to be scattered with Santas celebrating the season.
Scuba Santa in the Philippines
In the warmer climates, Santa likes to enjoy a different type of activity.  In Honolulu he can be seen in a canoe riding through the surf, waving to surfers and beach goers.  In Chile, he also takes on the waves but in a boat filled with his helpers where they head to shore to deliver gifts for the people waiting.  And in the Philippines, Santa heads underwater with some scuba gear in the Manila Ocean Park Aquarium.  The warmer climate must be a nice change of pace for Mr. Claus who is used to the cold and snow of the North Pole. 
These are just a few locations where Santa is found spreading holiday cheer.  His attendance brings out the best in people and creates excitement among children everywhere.  This just proves that no matter where you are, Santa is always watching.
