Santa's little helper seems rather...umh...big, Chris.
Chris: Santa's little helper might have been helping himself to sweeties methinks Ray!

are the stairs into the grotto steep.... I think the 'little helper' fell down a few times..
Could you bear the excitement and did you go in??
Chris: I didn't go in Astrid because Santa's little helper had eaten all the sweeties
This definitely has a Christmas Market feel to it, Chris.
Chris: Taken in downtown Bath last year Ginnie, a lure for the kids

H&M sounds familiar like some other things, but the fool looks wonderful! I hope this is not a German Christmas Market!
Chris: Not at all Philine, this is traditional UK rubbish through & through

I know - you just couldn't keep away, Chris!
Chris: I cannot control my cravings Lisl

"Santa's Grotty" surely? I hope this chap is not typical of the those fine people in the National Elf Service? I'm pleased that the festive sheds in Winchester have finished but the boating lake-cum-ice rink remains, I believe.
Chris: In Bath all the sheds have been swept away and the purveyors of over-priced seasonal tat are all abroad soaking in the sunshine

Even if there were sweets inside, he is blocking a double doored entrance very effectively.
Chris: The scene lacks any sort of jolliness for me Louis
Do you suppose he was told to stand in this strange elf position? His feet look so odd.
Chris: Maybe he has been constructed from spare parts

Good grief, I hope he doesn't sit on Santa's knee.
Chris: Poor Santa if he does!
Santa's grotto looks closed Tiff, yet one of his little starving elves is posted outside.
Chris: Do you feel the need to feed him Chad? If so maybe burger 'n' fries, extra large, might be in order
This is the most depressing grotto I have seen in a long time
Chris: Frightful isn't it
Chris: My feelings precisely Frank..
Santa's Elf is either well padded or .....?
Chris: He looks as if he is the spirit of over indulgence doesn't he..
There's still leaves on the trees as if to emphasise that the bareness of Xmas spirit captured here! smile
Chris: Quite right Fred: a complete absence of Christmas spirit..
Santa's elf has been into the Christmas pudding Chris... quite often....petersmile
Chris: He certainly has Peter!
Is this the Elf from Elf and Safety, keep well clear.
Chris: Good advice Martin!
