Santa visits Hamilton Post Office

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

Santa Claus took a break from his busy holiday schedule today to spread Christmas cheer at the General Post Office in Hamilton.

Primary and nursery aged children, and all those young at heart, had the opportunity to have their photo taken with him.

The photos were printed on to personalised Christmas postcards, which could then be mailed in a special red mailbox in the foyer.

A spokesman for the Bermuda Post Office said: “This initiative is primarily designed to encourage children to write holiday greetings, to teach them how to correctly address a postcard, to experience the postal mailing process and to allow the children to have fun with Santa.”
