As a family Christmas treat my Mum and Dad booked us tickets for a ride on the Polar Express. Now I am guessing that most people have seen the Polar Express film or read the book and if you haven’t you should!
We all turned up to the station in our pyjamas, just like in the film. Once on board there were lots of singing and dancing and story telling. The conductor came and stamped patterns in our ticket, just like the film, its all very magical. Hot chocolate and cookies were served by the dancing chefs just before the train arrived at the North Pole. It was lovely to see Honey’s little face when she spotted Santa.
Once Santa was on the train he spoke with each child, asking them what they wanted for Christmas and gave them each a silver bell.
When we arrived back at the station I brought myself a silver bell decoration which I thought would be a perfect memory of the trip which I could hang on my Christmas tree each year.
This was such a lovely family trip and we will definitely be going again next year.
Merry Christmas everyone and remember, the bell still rings for those who truly believe.
