The other morning my daughter and I were having a conversation at breakfast and she mentioned something about sending Santa a Christmas Card. My reaction, “Umm, you didn’t send Santa a Christmas card, you sent him a list of things you want.” “That’s not the same thing.” Her response, “Well, I told him Merry Christmas.” Ugh!
After having a conversation about why we send Christmas Cards to our friends and relatives, I started thinking about how we can show Santa a little more appreciation. Of course, Santa delivers toys to good girls and boys all over the world and does it out of the goodness of his heart. But, that doesn’t mean he’s not deserving of a little acknowledgement for his efforts and maybe even a Thank You!
This year we’re going to start a new tradition of leaving a Thank You note to Santa along with his cookies and Coke :). And, we’re also going to leave a little something for the reindeer. Pulling that sleigh all over the world is not an easy job and deserves a few props too! Of course, I had to create some “Thank You Santa” stationery and a “Reindeer Food” tag for the occasion.
