Le père Noël veut d’abord te dire que Mme Claus, les lutins, les rennes et tout le monde, y compris moi-même, nous nous portons tous très bien ici au Pôle Nord.

Personne n’est malade.

HoHoHo to all my friends.

Santa wishes to tell you that Mrs. Claus, the elves, the reindeers and everyone else, including myself, are all doing very well here in the North Pole.

No one is sick.

September 26, 2018 - The leaves are still green and pumpkins are sprouting up everywhere, but Santa Claus is coming a little earlier this year to Ottawa.

What’s bringing the jolly fellow back so soon? Have there been an increase of naughtiness in the Capital region?

Nope he says, everyone is doing great, always ready to give out a helping hand to those who need it. Which is one of the reasons Santa is coming to Ottawa.

He will be at the EY Center, October 13th, to say thank you and his share his appreciation to all the volunteers and staff involved with OutGROW OutPlay - OGOP.

An Ottawa man who dons Kris Kringle's red suit for parties and events has crafted a special bench for this weekend's NHL 100 Classic game at Lansdowne Park.

Marc Bertrand assembled used hockey sticks donated by Carleton University and the University of Ottawa, along with ones he found discarded at arenas, to create the bench.

It will be used as a seat for Santa Claus outside the game between the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

La classique de 2017 représente le dernier rendez-vous marquant le 100e anniversaire de la Ligue nationale de hockey (LNH), en plus de se dérouler pendant le 150e anniversaire de la Confédération canadienne. Des raisons particulières de célébrer notre sport national, et le père Noël ne sera pas en reste avec sa contribution spéciale : un fauteuil fabriqué spécialement pour l’occasion… en bâtons de hockey.

Santa catching a stuffed bear for CHEO

HoHoHello All my 67s Hockey Fan!

I have been asked by the fabulous hockey team, the Ottawa 67s, to help them once again be a part of their annual Teddy Bear Toss for CHEO!

I am so exicted to be a part once again this year! Last year, we collected thousands of beautiful stuff toys and gave many children a super special Christmas gift last year.

Please help the 67s organisation once again this year by bringing in a new unused plush toy at the hockey game:
