* Santa tries a hot air balloon.
In preparation for the Llangollen Christmas Festival Santa has been trying out some alternatives to his traditional sleigh.
Santa told us: “Sometimes I worry about how I’d manage if the sleigh broke down or something happened to the reindeer.”
He was recently spotted in a hot air balloon at Llangollen’s Balloon Festival and has also been seen around town about on a Segway.
The 101 Battalion Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers even let Santa try one of their armoured vehicles.
The reindeer needn’t worry about being replaced though because Santa has decided that the fastest, safest and most comfortable way to travel is definitely a sleigh.
Llangollen’s Christmas Festival will take place on Saturday November 26 and starts at 1pm with a parade through town.
You can see Sion Corn in his sleigh and then visit him in his grotto.
