Wink What does Santa get at your house?

every Christmas eve a mince pie and a shot of Whiskey used to put outside for Santa, then we would go to bed and try and sleep.

Now things have changed a little as I have my Own child now, and so it`s a sausage or cheese roll and a shot of Vodka.


what do You guys do?

Boring, milk and cookies.....

However I've seen that when he gets here, he gets into my liqour cabinet and throws some Kahlua and vodka in it.......

I've started marking the bottles before bed.

Well, that explains why Santa rarely made it to our house as a kid, he was passed out somewhere over the middle of the US. LOLOLOL

wow, yt. no wonder he's so freakin' jolly and red faced. ol' nick gets his bag on over england, then he comes here.

we're going to do the milk and cookies for santa, which will be partially consumed for authenticity, and a special note of thanks from mr. kringle.

not to forget the reindeer, we also put out carrots.

hmm, for more realism, i'll soak some raisins and leave them in a pile by the carrots...

The kids and I used to make chocolate chip cookies on Christmas Eve. They would put out milk and cookies for Santa and carrots/celery for the reindeer.

I hope he leaves Santa a glass of wine this year. I don't remember leaving anything for Santa when I was a child, but, I'm old.

Santa gets graham crackers and hot chocolate, the deer get carrots and I get to try and clean up the ash tracks from DH's big boot prints (Santa tracks) from the fireplace.

The tipple changed when I was little, sometimes a whiskey, probably that most often, sometimes a port, occasionally eggnog....but always a mince pie! And then the carrots...a bag full.....(there is more than one reindeer.) My parents had to draw the line when I said I wanted to leave sugar beets and a bale of hay too. :)
