Santa’s Gift to Gloomy UK

Horsham, United Kingdom, September 10, 2008 --( In the face of economic doom and gloom in the UK families are still booking Lapland trips to meet the real Santa Claus, in their thousands.

Santa holiday specialist Esprit Holidays said “We have more early bookings for families to visit Father Christmas this year than ever before. Despite talk of tightening their belts people don’t want to miss out on the crucial time when their children are young when they can take them on a real once in a lifetime trip“.

Esprit Santa’s Lapland Holidays offers Lapland holidays of 1 - 5 days duration to Rovaniemi and Saariselka in Finnish Lapland, from Manchester, Bristol, London and Birmingham, inclusive of a family snowmobile sleigh ride and private meeting with Santa, a husky dog ride, a reindeer sleigh ride and outdoor thermal wear.

Esprit’s Moira Clarke continued “There is only a limited window of opportunity for families to take children out for a holiday to meet the real Santa. Waiting a year or two isn’t an option with this kind of a holiday and families are recognising that and prioritising a Lapland trip above other household expenditure”.

She added “However, people do need to be particularly careful when choosing who to travel with, in particular what is and isn’t included in the trip as extras can get expensive. A company such as ours will guarantee a good quality experience, with decent gifts for the kids, a private meeting with Santa, the use of outdoor thermal clothing and a range of activities included in the package”.
