A man loved by many around the world, a rotund, cheerful man with a full, white beard, holding a sack laden with toys for lucky children. Yeah, that’s Santa Claus. HERE!’s Editor-in-Chief, Ziv has been corresponding with him for a long time. Only recently has he successfully convinced Santa to come to Dongguan on December 21.
I am so thrilled and happy to be there with you to spread the message of love and goodwill on December 21, the day before the Winter Solstice, which Mr. Ziv has told me is a very important time and festival for Cantonese people. What a great idea to spend a special day celebrating both!
Santa Claus spends his time at the magical Arctic Circle every day of the year (minus one!) to take care of his mission in life; to enhance the well-being of children and the kindness of grown-ups, as well as spreading the Christmas spirit across the globe. This year, so you can have an idea of what Santa gets up to back home, he will be visiting Dongguan and appearing in the Christmas Village at 33 Town with Mrs. Claus and their elves!
And they won’t be alone, as a host of Dongguan businesses will be bringing you food, games, and entertainment, all wrapped up in the brightest holiday decorations. There will even be a special Christmas store where you can buy gifts for yourself and your loved ones. HERE!’s Editor-in-Chief Ziv commented “Here you can experience a real Christmas with Santa and his family.” And who knows, it may even snow to give us all a traditional white Christmas. Either way, it’s going to be merry and magical, so be sure you have your camera ready!
Come out and take pictures with Santa, play games, eat food, and join hundreds of others in celebrating Christmas! And keep your eyes posted, as we reveal more details about the festivities to come.
