Try getting Father Christmas to drive children for ice cream and see
what he does. 

Fifth, Father Christmas, no matter where you see him, is always in a
hurry. He never seems to have enough time to spend with children. Sure,

"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye
may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth 
much." (James 5:16 KJV.) 

One righteous Grandfather is worth all the Father Christmases in the
