When are they coming to Australia?
The department store man in Australia’s state of Queensland has just had his annual Christmas in-store appearance.
The man is part of the Australian Department of Culture, Arts and Heritage’s annual Christmas shopping spree.
“It’s really exciting,” said the man.
“When I first saw it, I thought it would be just a little bit silly and I’ll just leave it at that.
But then I saw that it was actually a little more serious and a little bigger than expected, so I thought, ‘what the heck, I have to do something.'”
The man, whose real name is Simon, has been taking part in the Christmas shopping season for nearly two years, and is now in his 20s.
“I’ve got about 30 other men, I’ve got to take care of them, I’m really good at it,” he said.
“The first year I was a bit bit scared to take part, but then it got easier.”
A lot of people have told me that I’m just a good customer and they’re quite excited about the occasion.
“Simon said the department store was “one of the nicest things I’ve ever had”.”
Simon has been part of a “citizen’s Christmas” campaign in Queensland for the past five years. “
I think I’m a bit spoiled here, but I’m still going to do my bit for the community.”

He has also visited the department stores of the State Government and other businesses, and has helped to organise events to promote the theme.
“One of the big reasons I decided to get involved was to raise awareness about how important it is for people to be part of this Christmas shopping,” he explained.
“Because we don’t get a lot of holidays out of it, it’s important that people are engaged with their local community.”
