Come and meet Santa Claus and his special helper Merry Elf! Merry Elf is one of the funniest of elves and Santa Claus has given him an important task: Merry Elf has to make sure that everybody has a Merry Christmas! We are very lucky to have him visit us in Vuokatti and meet all the families spending their holidays here with us. Before meeting Santa Claus Merry Elf plays with children and adults, maybe tells a story or two of his own Merry Chopper and of course always has some Christmas candies in his pockets to share.

After spending time with Merry Elf, every family gets to meet Santa privately, children get small gifts and the whole family is photographed with Santa – a nice memory to take home with.

This will be the best Christmas ever!
