We’ve had lots of compliments about our Christmas decorations this year here in our Kensington shops, the centrepiece being a hug of bears.
Yup, that’s the collective noun for a group of Teddies. We know you’d always wondered, so there’s another mystery solved. Don’t say we’re not good to you.
We think they’re a rather handsome bunch. And so, over the next 12 days we’ll be introducing them one-by-one here on The Hornet. There will be a little biographical info on each, and a short excerpt from each bear’s letter to Father Christmas.
Lovely boy, Alistair. With a lot going for him. Terribly under-confidant. He’s determined to tackle 2015 head-on, however, and wants a new image. Here’s his letter to Santa
The Guv’nor replies…
Alistair, my dear boy. Always so apologetic. It’s a mystery to us, you know, because EVERYBODY loves you. We’ll certainly look out some cufflinks for you, and I’d be delighted to act as your personal stylist for the year ahead. Lovely boy. Isn’t he a lovely boy, everyone?
