Don't Forget the Milk & Cookies

If you have been good this year, tonight Santa will climb down your chimney and leave presents under your Christmas tree. (If you don’t have a chimney, don’t worry – Santa uses magic to change your air-conditioner into a fireplace. If you don’t believe me, check out Disney's The Santa Clause.)

Santa gives you presents. Did you know that you are supposed to give Santa something? In North America, most children leave some milk and cookies for Santa on a table near the Christmas tree…

Santa has milk & cookies at every house
he visits – that’s why he’s so fat!
In Australia, Christmas is celebrated in the middle of summer. Instead of milk & cookies, Australian children usually leave Santa some beer and fruitcake. It’s true!

Also, in Australia it’s too hot for Santa to use reindeer. Instead, he uses 6 white kangaroos known as…

The 6 White Boomers

Of course, there’s no such thing as a white kangaroo...

Or is there?!

Have a very merry Christmas!

And don’t forget the milk and cookies!
