PHOTOS, VIDEO: Father Christmas Storyteller at the 2023 EPCOT Festival of the Holidays

    As part of the 2023 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, guests can enjoy Holiday Storytellers at various World Showcase pavilions. The storytellers each tell a different legend of the holiday season from their home country. At the United Kingdom Pavilion, guests can hear from Father Christmas as he encourages guests to sing along to classic holiday songs and tells the story of holiday season traditions.

    Father Christmas Storyteller


    Many beloved Christmas traditions originated in the countries of the United Kingdom. England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales gifted the world some of the most revered Christmas songs and carols including “Deck the Halls”, “the Twelve Days of Christmas”, “Here We Come A-Wassailing”, and many more!

    Throughout the United Kingdom, children await the arrival of Father Christmas – dressed in green robes, with a long white beard and a crown of holly – to deliver gifts and holiday cheer to children everywhere.

    Happy Christmas!
