Toot your ho, ho, horn for Santa this Saturday

It’s that time of the year again when Santa visits the Cayman Motor Museum to happily sit for photographs and listen to children’s Christmas wishes.

This Saturday, 1 December, Jolly Old Saint Nick himself will appear in the flesh, and take a seat in the 1905 Cadillac bedecked and festooned with decorations. The car sits next to the facade of an old-style Caymanian house, which will also be sporting wreaths and lights aplenty. It’s the perfect setting for your Christmas photo and with so much to see at the museum, a great way to spend the day with family.

Santa will be there from 11am to 3pm, and all photographs will be taken by the museum photographer. The cost is only US$15 and includes free entrance to the museum. There will also be gingerbread and hot chocolate for children, and gluvine for adults from noon to 4pm with the purchase of an entry ticket.

The museum has spared no expense when it comes to decking the halls and walls. Huge Christmas trees share space with a fabulous collection of automobiles that will delight any car enthusiast. In fact, there is something for everyone to see in this large venue, including artwork, antique coffee grinders, and an authentic 1950s diner. It appeals to all ages and should not be missed by visitors or residents.

This is the second annual visit of Santa to the museum. Turns out that he had such a fabulous time last year, he insisted on coming back again in 2012. Santa is actually a bit of a car fanatic himself, and although he loves his sleigh when he needs to fly around the world, he’s quite keen on a red Ferrari when getting from A to B in the North Pole. That is, when Mrs. Claus isn’t using it.

So make sure you stop by the Cayman Motor Museum this Saturday to get your photograph taken with Santa and give yourself some time to browse the amazing vehicles inside. It’s a great way to start getting in the Christmas spirit!
