Join Captain Calamity for a 'Santa-mime' adventure in a whimsical performance that will leave you in stitches. The laughter-filled show is sure to entertain and distract you from the elf chaos.

Participate in heartwarming workshops to create acts of kindness that will melt the green and grumpy one's heart. Craft beautiful hearts and inscribe them with messages of goodwill before posting them through his postbox at the mills. And remember, we won't call the green and grumpy one by his name as Santa disapproves!

Compose a heartfelt letter to Santa Claus and drop it into his postbox. Share your wishes for a peaceful and joyful holiday season, and who knows, Santa might just have a special surprise for you!
