Until Christmas Eve, Insensitive Santa, specialising in children on Santa’s naughty list, will appear at the Marketplace. He plans to punish those kids with his belt or bundle of birch sticks.
“There are no photos or gifts except coal,” one of his helpers told The Bendigo Standard. “Insensitive Santa comes from a time where you would get the cane at school and send your kids to bed without any supper.”
Insensitive Santa has changed the behaviour of at least 130 children.
“Every child, regardless of how naughty they’ve been, deserves the same opportunity to visit Insensitive Santa and feel connected during the holiday,” said Bendigo Marketplace Head Honcho John Rolls.
Every child will receive a lump of coal.
Bookings are essential.
