Santa’s House, Saint Martin’s heritage

MARIGOT: Everyone knows it, whether you live on the island or are visiting, the Santa House located at Cripple Gate is a ritual not to be missed.

It is always in the tradition of the end of the year celebrations that Bernardine and Monique Joe welcome the public impatient to discover this den dedicated to Christmas. Although the global health crisis means that visits are by appointment only and that it is sometimes necessary to be patient to gain access to the house, the public is always present to live this incredible and unforgettable experience which, each year, officially marks the beginning of the festivities.

The sanitary measures are highly appreciated by the visitors and the limited number of people present in Santa’s house (not to say “Lady Christmas”) allow to stroll in the rooms more easily and to take advantage of this moment to exchange a little with Bernardine who receives the guests in the heart of her house with a tray filled with small shots of rum and sweets to nibble. The outside illuminations as well as the passage leading to the entrance of the house will transport you in a fairy world, the children, as well as the adults, never cease to be amazed by it.

To pass in front of the Santa House is already a treat for the eyes. It is a delight to enter. The entrance is free but it is always greatly appreciated to leave a donation in the box reserved for this purpose to contribute to the perpetuity of this Saint Martin institution.
