"Have the trendiest Santa in all of Hoxton write a personal Christmas ditty for your pal," said the message.
How could we refuse? A simple missive to Ho Ho Hoxton, and a few hours later we got this...a seasonal greeting from us, to you. Merry Christmas Londonist readers:
The trendy Santa, with his thick-rimmed specs, proto-beard and bright red fixie, is the brainchild of local digital media company Grape Digital. Get your requests in soon, before his sack bulges to unmanageable proportions.
