CMC: Drinks For Santa

This is part of my Christmas Memory Challenge, a goal I set for myself to recall 25 things I love about Christmas. You can also check out Shannon's memories here.

Like most people I know, we were a family that left treats for Santa. When I was younger, we left the usual - milk, cookies, apple or carrot for Rudolph - but one year my stepdad suggested we leave a beer for Santa. I know now that he was joking, but as a young child I hadn't quite grasped the concept of sarcasm. So I put out a beer for Santa.

And then I put one out the next year.

And the year after that.

That's how we became the family that encouraged drinking and sledding.

And you better believe that when I have kids, we're leaving Santa a beer. Santa deserves it!

Hmmm....do you think Santa likes Baileys? Maybe I'll suggest that this year...

I'd be willing to bet Santa f*ing LOVES Baileys! ;)

So awesome. Maybe beer's the reason Santa's so jolly?

I think you might be on to something there!
