Santa likes to have a beer and cookies.  The reindeer like grass and carrots but theydo leave a lot of mess and glitter outside.

We haven't been leaving anything out so far (my oldest is only 3). I'll be reading for some ideas for this year though.

Cookies and milk. Celery for reindeer.

I don't get the beer thing. Santa shouldn't drink and sleigh-drive, dammit!

Yes, it does seem he'd be quite tipsy after a few houses.

Milk and chocolate chip cookies here - means I have to bake cookies on Christmas Eve because they'd all be gone if I baked them any earlier.

My kids are firmly of the belief that kangaroos pull the sleigh in Australia (thanks Rolf Harris!) so we just leave out some grass and water for them.

Ice cold glass of water - Australia is Hot and Santa would very likely be thirsty and one of my homemade ginger bread cookies.   DH usually guides their choice (he's the one who has to enjoy it later with a cuppa!)

Raindeer get carrot and we wash out and top up the dog water bowl so they can share that with the dog. (Luckily our dog likes to much on carrot)


Now that they are older and dont believe in Santa, they still do the Santa cup and biscuit thing as they think mum and dad deserve a cuppa and a bikkie laughing2.gif

Whatever treats I've made that year. Usually Christmas themed cake balls or gingerbread & a glass of milk. Reindeer get carrot. Santa may or may not have forgot to eat his treats last year. ph34r.gif

Normally a few chocolate/biscuits, a glass of milk and a carrot for the reindeer.

I normally chomp away at the carrot like a mad woman so it looks like a reindeer had a nibble at it!! biggrin.gif
