It's not the holidays without...
Give Santa What He Deserves
It’s just not the Holidays without…………the basic elements like... family, children, friends, laughter, and music. And of course it wouldn’t be a holiday without magic! You need Christmas cheer, joy, and the spirit of giving.
To get you in the best of spirits the little things always set the tone like candy canes, gingerbread homes, and mistletoe. Warm winter drinks like egg nog, hot cocoa, and apple cider keep smiles on everyone’s faces.
To make the holiday official you need Christmas carolers, Christmas lights, and a Christmas tree. Holiday Cartoon favorites like Charlie brown, Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, and Frosty the Snow man encourage the young and not so young to continue to believe.
Holiday parades bring families near. Annual favorites like Black Friday jump start the holiday shopping season. If you are in the music business you can’t miss a season without Christmas raps.
But to be more specific in my family our holiday food tradition is baking. We just do what Santa likes us to do! We must supply Santa with cookies, lots and lots of sugar cookies and a glass of milk.
For crying out loud why would Santa want to venture on a long, cold trip leaving the comfort of Mrs. Claus to juggle orders to elves and deer without an incentive? Come on people he didn’t get that belly and to be so jolly without some cookies. Keep the supply of cookies coming.
From my home to yours Happy Holidays and have a blessed new year! For those who believe remember what these joyous celebrations are all about!
