    Santa’s fucking dead!

    It says a lot when Christmas falls into a strange category of mild disappointment.  This week has seen two Lapland adventure parks close in spectacular fashion.  Christmas is supposed to be a time of magic if not for the adults but at least for the kids.

    Things have seemingly gone awry with certain aspects of these so called Laplands.  I tend to wonder what people were thinking as they booked their tickets for the Magical Adventure of Lapland in Dorset.

    Dorset come on….

    Dorset; Our own Lapland?

    Dorset; Our own Lapland?

    There’s not a lot that’s Christmasy about Dorset, but alas the adverts confirmed that indeed a field would become a magical land which would encompass the entire spirit of the season, full of snow and jolly Eskimos singing fabled songs to draw out the time between queueing for the Ice Rink and to meet the man himself, not Jesus, but Santa; the true reason for which Christmas exists.

    At anything up to thirty pounds the cost to enter this land is expensive at best, and when you see the reports of what the site looked like, you really see that a little magical design has been put into place on the website for these events.

    I think if I was a kid these days I’d be a bit disappointed if I went to a so called Lapland and there was a haggard women screaming outside the gate;

    “Santa’s gone home… SANTA IS FUCKING DEAD”

    This would put you off a bit.
