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!

    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
