Narnia Here We Come!

On Saturday we went to Downpatrick where they turned the St. Patrick's Center into the world of Narnia. The kids were met by Mrs. Claus where she told them the short story of how Narnia came to be. The kids were to find Aslan who would take them to Santa to change Narnia from being cold and always winter and never Christmas into a world of Christmas.
Mrs. Claus took them first through the wardrobe to find Mr. Tumnus. Mr. Tumnus asked the children to sing songs to call to Peter, Susan, Edmond, and Lucy so the children could help them find Santa.

Mr. Tumnas took them to Mrs. Beaver's dam where they wrote letters to Santa.
Mrs. Beaver took the children to see the ice queen in her ice palace. The ice queen gave each of the children real turkish delight. My kids had always wondered what it tasted like. They thought it very sticky and sweet.
Aslan was frozen from the ice queen's magic and thus the kids had to blow on Aslan to wake him up and then Aslan led them to Santa.

The kids loved talking with Santa and got their pictures taken and they each got a small present to take home. We also had cookies and juice. What more could you ask for. It was a great experience and well done.


  1. What a magical time for the children, Iva. So glad you shared this and the segments of the different parts of the story.
    Wish I were there....
