Why the Holy Family Shop is closing at the end of August

HAGUE, Netherlands — The family shop where children dressed as Santa Claus and a dog helped keep the Christmas lights on is closing this month.

The shop, called Holy Family, has been around since 1989 and has been popular with children since its opening.

In 2016, the family bought a new store to continue running the shop but closed it in May.

We are very sad to announce that we have decided to close our shop.

This is very sad news.

We have been a part of this family for over 50 years and we want to make it clear to everyone that we will always be there for you.

More to come.
