London–based Kate Abbey, an Accredited Photographer with the Association of Photographers has created an unusual project after asking primary school children for their thoughts about Santa (Father Christmas, in some regions) and how he carries out the mammoth task of delivering presents.

What's most interesting is that Kate's series includes images with and without the children's quotes on Santa, which adds interesting context when you compare them (example below).
