Christmas Eve Carols and who is that man?

On Christmas eve John Harris came and played carols for us on the piano. It's the 14th year that he's been coming so it's quite a tradition now and it is a really enjoyable occasion with everyone singing along and then enjoying sherry and mince pies. This year we had the added and unexpected treat of Rita's daughter playing along on the flute. Father Christmas put in an appearance with presents for everyone kindly bought by the elves (staff!). Sometimes we worry that Father Christmas might be a bit childish but it is certainly fun and brings a lot of smiles so never mind.  He will be investing in a new hat for next year.
