Write some more lines for the poem inside our virtual Christmas card!

Just imagine what it must be like for Santa on Christmas Eve, flying around the world all night delivering presents, stopping at millions of houses and travelling really fast. What sort of things might get caught in his beard? Things from houses, things in the sky, things found on roofs, things to do with the weather …

Things To Find in Santa’s Beard

A thousand crushed and flattened flies

Soot from a thousand chimney pots

Dribbled sherry from a thousand stops
