Just before Christmas me and my family went to Centre Parcs and we went to Santa's grotto. We were waiting in an ice tunnel which was like it was real. There was Olaf (from Frozen), a penguin and a polar bear. Penguins and Polar bears do not live in the same place, so you don't normally see them together.
The santa's beard was real because obviously it was itchy and when he pulled it, it didn't come off. He had a brighter beard than I would expect, and the books looked like they were painted to the wall which looked like they weren't really real. It was a good idea, but don't try it.
I would like to go back for more fun adventures.
