Everyone is excited that you’re coming to town for yet another year!
Thanks for being predictable so we can take the necessary steps to prepare for your arrival.
You know, Santa, we’re pretty good at hosting well-known people here in Tofino, so we’re going to do our best to make sure you’re not disturbed as you make your way around town spreading cheer and leaving gifts for the children. Just a warning though—if you do go out in public, it is possible people will be so excited they simply cannot hold themselves back, we know you’re okay with a selfie or two (right?).
We’ve got some extra rooms booked for your security and support staff (they don’t mind double-bunking, do they?), and some of our chefs have whipped up incredible west coast meals—the reindeer are going to love a taste of local lichen and seaweeds. We think the elves would appreciate a surfing lesson, so we’ve brought in some red and green soft tops and we’ve equipped the kid-sized wetsuits with special modifications to accommodate their elf-hats.
What about you, Santa? Have you got time for a surf? Oh—surfing is not your thing? Don’t worry, we can get you in for a side-by-side hot rock massage with Mrs. Claus. She’ll love it.
We appreciate all your hard work, Santa, but we are a bit concerned about your health. It’s important to us that you take care of yourself so you feel great and have lots of energy to tackle the mountain of gifts you and the elves need to prepare for NEXT year. So, to help you stay in shape and since you are not a surfer, we’ve arranged a guided tour for you up Wah-nah-jus (also known as Lone Cone), where you’ll have a spectacular view of all the chimneys in the region—so long as it’s not socked in and raining.
By the way, Santa, if you haven’t brought the right clothing for your Tofino trip, we can get you outfitted in gumboots and truly waterproof rain gear (warning: don’t bother with the Gore-Texx here, Santa).
Just one last thing, Santa. We’ll do our best to leave you on your own to enjoy everything this region has to offer, but if you happen to photobomb a wedding on the beach, we think you should leave your lovely red Santa suit on.
Mayor of Tofino
