Santa Claus and his 'toys' which came to life, wishing the crowd a Merry Christmas. (Jeremy Tan / Dec 23, 2013)

IT’S nearly Christmas and at Santa Claus’ magical workshop, toys lie waiting to be packed into Santa’s bag and given as presents to kids all around the world.

Suddenly, a gust of wind magically brings Whimsy the Toy Soldier, Winkie the Marionette Puppet, Tootsie the Toy Snowman, Dipsy the Toy Bear and Twinkie the Toy Fairy to life.

The toys dance and cavort in celebration.

They proceed to sing a medley of joyful numbers such as ‘Jingle Bells’, ‘White Christmas’ and ‘Feliz Navidad’.

Then, with the clock ticking towards midnight, Santa makes an entry with his “Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas!” greeting.

He packs the toys into his bag and gets ready to deliver them just in time for Christmas.

This delightful musical themed ‘Let the Magic Spread This Christmas’ thrilled the shoppers at Gurney Paragon Mall in Penang.

The entire cast of the show also had time to pose for photographs with shoppers while Santa’s elves went around distributing candies to youngsters.

The shows, which were held in the past two weekends, continues today and tomorrow at 3pm and 6pm at the mall’s atrium.

Prior to the performances, at 2pm and 5pm, Santa Claus and Santarinas will also be making the rounds around the mall located along Gurney Drive to spread some festive happiness.

Tonight, there will be a Christmas carolling session at 7pm to get shoppers into the Yuletide mood.

This will be followed by the Christmas Eve Countdown at the mall’s Festive Square from 8pm till midnight.

Tomorrow, there will be a Christmas Day live band performance at the same venue, also at 8pm.
