Toys and Father Christmas
The Salvation Army had to apologise following the embarrassing blunder

Parents at the ‘Winter Wonderland’ day took to Twitter after discovering the free gifts for kids included novelty phallic elastic bands.

Parents in the villagers in Pill in Somerset found that some of the goodies given to their children by the Salvation Army Santa on Saturday were distinctly adult-themed.

Salvation Army Officer Nicholas Ward later posted an apology for the error, stating: “It has come to our attention that some children received inappropriate toys from Father Christmas at tonight’s ‘Santa’s Grotto’.

“We are very sorry for this and will take this issue up with the Christmas Lights committee, who provide the toys for Father Christmas to distribute.

“That said, we would like to thank Santa for his time and for all the families who shared in our Winter Wonderland.

“We hope you had a good night and please accept our apologies for any offence these toys might have caused you and your children.”
