This year, the end of freedom of movement in the UK has put a real crinkle in our Christmas plans. We have all felt the pinch of achingly long border delays and supply chain catastrophes as well as food and petrol shortages.

And naturally, we also we really feel for all the foreign workers who used to help make our season bright. Of course, given his importance, our greatest concern was for the most important foreign worker of all, Father Christmas.

We decided to give the jolly fellow a video call in Lapland to make sure he was able to make his way through all that governmental red tape.
