Move aside Hollywood stars, Santa Claus is coming to town in Dubai
It's every kid’s Christmas dream - seeing Santa Claus in person delivering bundles of presents.
And now one UAE website is making that dream come true. For every order above Dhs300 placed on Mumzworld.com between now and December 30, Christmas shoppers can choose to have the gifts brought to them by the big man himself.
Friends Ryan McGorie, seven, Maxim McLaughlin, four, and William Norris, three, were delighted when Father Christmas delivered their big bundle of gifts to Ryan’s house in Dubai this week.
Lucky Ryan got a Spider-man stacking kit as part of a joint birthday and early Chrimbo present. The Spidy fan said he was really looking forward to seeing his picture in 7DAYS with Santa Claus - so he could be famous among his friends at Jebel Ali Primary School.
Maxim promised Santa he’d start eating his vegetables - while little William simply said: “I love Santa Claus!”
Ryan’s mum, Katherine, said the Mumzworld idea was “brilliant”.
However, 7DAYS can exclusively reveal that the Mumzworld delivery van was called into emergency action to bring the pressies to Ryan’s Jumeirah home... after Rudolph and friends were detained at immigration.
“I couldn’t get the reindeers through customs,” Santa admitted to 7DAYS.
