Bosco shares favourite Christmas food, songs and a special message for all the boys and girls

Bosco loves turkey, but knows a very smelly one that wouldn’t be tasty.


The famous puppet didn’t hold back when asked about this special time of the year, telling

“I love Christmas, I love Christmas trees, I love making decorations for Christmas trees. I love singing Christmas songs.”

Bosco burst into song when asked about favourite festive music:

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. I like that one.

And what about food? Cakes and chocolate didn’t make it to the top of the list. Bosco said:

“Do you know what I love the best? I love turkey, that’s lovely. Not Dustin, just ordinary turkey.

Not a noisy fella or a smelly fella just an ordinary turkey, cause Dustin smells. He’s very smelly.

And what about the big man himself, does Bosco still get a visit from Santa:

“Of course, I always say:

Dear Santa,

I’ve been good all year and please would you send me a big surprise.

Love Bosco

Finally, we asked Bosco to give a Christmas message to all the boys and girls in Ireland. But Bosco didn’t tell us the message, Bosco sang the message:

You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout I’m telling you why, Santa Claus is coming to town.
