Uncle Holly Saves Christmas by Kathleen Franklin
Uncle Holly Circle 1963
Father Christmas And Uncle Holly is a happy collection of seven songs with a simple story revealing the well-kept secret of Father Christmas' twin brother. We meet the army of red and green elves and learn about the secret snow tunnel. How do the elves spend their Christmas morning now all the toys are finished? Father Christmas And Uncle Holly is intended for children from all ethnic backgrounds in toddler and play groups, nurseries, kindergartens, reception classes and at Key Stage 1. It is also suitable for older children with learning difficulties.
This was a day of feverishly anticipated awe. The Tube train journey and thrill of what was to come had my stomach in knots. The scenes were a source of pure magic as I stood in my best velvetcollared frock coat, nose pressed close fogging up the windows, eyes two buttons of wonderment as I looked in jaw-dropped glee. Simply heaven. A pineapple juice and a lamb chop smothered in mint sauce for me made it a day that would rival a fortnight in Narnia. I walked along Oxford Street recently and the windows were cold, archly glamorous displays of designer labels — symbols of hard-to-achieve aspirational lifestyles devoid of warmth, magic and wonderment.

It was just up to the creative team to make his comeback tour perfectly Selfridges; the rest would come. For exactly years, the Oxford Street institution has been a yearround focus for window shoppers, but the festive season is the bighitter. On a regular day, , people will see a Selfridges window, but you can add 30 percent to that estimate at Christmas. Every inch of the shop was decorated for the celebrations that first Selfridges Christmas in London. Customers were given mince pies, choirs sang, Father Christmas distributed gifts and the staff got a bonus, plus a card from Mr. Selfridge himself.
