Although Jersey follows many of the same Christmas traditions as the United Kingdom, there is one event that takes place each year that is very special. In early December, Father Christmas arrives at Jersey Airport, waving to crowds of excited children, mums and dads and handing out sweets before climbing onto his sleigh. This event is reported in the local newspaper, fuelling the imaginations of islanders as to the nocturnal activities of Father Christmas as he prepares for the 'big day' itself.
