From Christmas wish lists to carol singers, Santa has a lot to listen out for over the festive period – especially with dozens of kids visiting him in his grotto, telling him what they want for Christmas!

This is why it is vital he makes sure his hearing is on top form - children will be very confused on Christmas Day if they wake up to a blue boat instead of a new coat or another pair of socks instead of the new Xbox!

That’s why, Specsavers stores across Edinburgh are urging their local Santas to get their hearing checked before they embark on their delivery rounds this year. Something as easy and simple as popping into Specsavers for a quick hearing test will ensure Santa will know his Dancer from his Prancer and his Eggnog from his Yule log.

Good listening is part of Santa’s job spec

Jonathan Bell, Audiology Director at Specsavers in Edinburgh said: ‘Our audiology services are available to everyone, St Nicholas included!

‘It’s crucial that people aged over 55 get their hearing checked every year. As we know, Santa lives forever and good listening is part of his job spec. His elves and Mrs Claus have nagged him to come to us and we remain hopeful he will visit us soon.’
