VIDEO: Santa arrives at Birr school in the most Offaly way!
Santa is famous for his mystical reindeer and flying sleigh - and of course that's the mode of transport he uses when he takes to the skies on Christmas Eve.
However, when in Offaly, the big man makes far more practical arrangements for getting around.
On Wednesday, he made a stop over at St. Brendan's Boy School in Birr, with a video of his arrival posted to Facebook by the school's parent's association.
The man in red pulled up his very own tractor - and it was green and red just for some added festive finesse. No matter how he arrives, kids are always happy to see him, and he certainly received a very enthusiastic reception at St. Brendan's.
