Merriment 5—Cookies for Santa

Years ago, when our boys were little, like most families we left cookies and milk out for Santa to snack on. After all, it’s a very long trip around the world and most fast food places close early on Christmas Eve!  Our boys, being the voracious cookie eaters that they were, would leave a pile, a BIG pile, of cookies out.  Poor Al would have to take a bite out of every cookie on the plate, plus drink the milk. At night. Before bed. And every Christmas Eve I would wonder if Santa Al would be able to GET to sleep!!  But he did…usually shortly before the boys woke in very early anticipation of Christmas morning!


HO HO HO !!  Santa Al gets to sleep in now!  Winking smile  —Jan  

By the way…the plate here is the one I remember my Daddy using ….ahhh….memories!

    That Santa is a HOOT! He looks like he just discovered the motherlode of cookies! Love it! We never had that tradition growing up, but I started it with my son….he would only leave one cookie – the one he thought was the most special and beautifully decorated. And carrots for the reindeer (his idea, not mine…) Bless those little souls. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
