What will you be leaving out for Santa this Christmas Eve?
Even if only one in 10 families in the UK left out an alcoholic drink, a sozzled Santa would be over the limit well before he could down all 1.7million drinks!
Families are being encouraged to ditch the traditional booze and leave out a soft drink to keep Santa safe on his sleigh this year – with an opportunity to get the right message across to children about drink driving!
This message, coming from 152 Hungry Horse pubs across the UK, isn’t just targeting Santa.
They have a little something for everyone….
Designated drivers enjoying Christmas celebrations get two free soft drinks and kids can colour in a special Christmas card featuring a sober Santa drinking a soft drink after completing his global delivery round which reads: “Dear Santa, please ‘go soft’ and drive safely this Christmas”
A spokesperson for the restaurant said: “Santa is our best-loved designated driver, and yet every year we ply him with alcohol during his epic global journey.
“We want him to stay safe on his sleigh and keep the right side of the law, and encouraging parents to ditch the sherry in favour of a soft drink this Christmas is a good way of getting the message across to youngsters without resorting to scare tactics”.
What will you be leaving Santa and his reindeers this Christmas?!
