everybody’s favourite bear.
This Christmas, let’s Spend it Well
When your outfit is a distinctive blue duffle coat and red bush hat, it’s hard to go unnoticed. This year, thanks to a new movie and his starring role in the M&S Christmas campaign, Paddington is more recognisable than ever.
How did you end up meeting Santa Claus?
It was sort of a wonderful accident. I heard a noise on the roof and there was Santa with a big sack of presents for everyone. I’d always wanted to meet him and I decided to help him out as he had a lot of presents to deliver.
What was he like?
He was a bit thinner than I imagined. It was funny that he left his sleigh and reindeers on the roof – mind you, Mrs Bird is always saying how hard it is to park in London.
