Near the outer limits of London, in Chesnaye, a caring father sought to cheer up his daughter after having suffered an unknown family tragedy. He did so by hand-wrapping individual Christmas gifts for the squirrels nearby.
Paul, the real-life squirrel Santa delivered the adorably wrapped packages of peanuts, almonds and cashews to the curious squirrels on their doorstep. He noted that “they got a real selection, so it was a special Christmas present!”
Paul’s daughter, Lucy, shared a few cute pictures of the excited squirrels opening their Christmas gifts on Twitter and her tweet went viral. She said “I find it really funny and I never expected so many people to see it.”
Paul admitted that the attention the tweet received online lent loads of cheer to his family’s Christmas this year. He also stated “my family is used to me being a bit nutty at times.”
