About Christmas in the Sunshine

This Christmas Elias is going to visit his family in the Caribbean for the first time. He gets to go to the beach, play in the sunshine, and there’ll be a big party. It’s going to be the best.

But he has one worry – will it still feel like Christmas? After all in London it’s usually really cold, he gets to decorate the Christmas tree and drinks lots of hot chocolate. He’s definitely never left a mango out for Santa before.

Join us for this joyful, warm and festive story of celebrating Christmas and family, wherever you are.
