Cool Yule: The Way Of Celebrating Christmas The Santa Way
Age can never come in the way of Christmas merriment. Here is a happy memory of celebrating Christmas in the shoes of Santa Claus by Arun Bhatia, an 84-year-old Silver Talkies member.
Christmas is here and it is that time of the year when we eagerly wait for the yum cakes and cookies, the illumined Christmas tree, colourfull balls and jingle bells, the star-shaped chandeliers and of course, Santa Claus with his bag full of gifts. Here is Arun Bhatia, 84-year-old Silver Talkies member, the king of good words and humour and an epitome of active and happy ageing, who has had the chance to play Santa Claus in one of the stores on MG Road Bangalore during 2008 Christmas. He shared his experience as Santa with Silver Talkies and here is all you need to know about the spirit of this octogenarian. And guess what, he is turning 86 in just two months and expects a surprise birthday party from us.
So — have you been good this year? Will Santa bring you a gift? Ho-ho-hope so!!
