Oh No! There's a problem in the North Pole. Santa's Sleigh won’t move. There's no Jingle in any of the Bells! Chief Irish Elves, Fluffy Fiona & Nollaig Shona, need your help to get the sleigh moving, so Santa can get gifts to children all over the world. Shane in the North Pole comes to the rescue with Christmas songs and sounds ... Join in at home or in school, create your own sounds and let's see if you can save Christmas and put some Jingle back in the Bells again. Expect to see plenty of snow and some crazy elves, as you sing along and get into the magical spirit of Christmas with this gorgeous online experience, with live footage from Lapland.
