A lot of folks don’t realize this, but the house has to be a certain way before Santa will slip down the chimney and leave his gifts. I mean, no one has spoken to Santa about this, but mommies everywhere just kind of assume. So, we usually are up a little late on Christmas Eve making sure that everything is all set the way Santa would like it. This includes a clean tree area, stockings hung properly, shelves cleaned, and some wrapping paper made available in case he needs to wrap anything while he’s there (that’s why Santa’s wrap sometimes matches what mommy and daddy have.) Anyhow, it’s a lot of work and I think that mommies don’t always get the credit they deserve for it. So I wrote them this poem.
Actually, I had really meant to get the Mamas in my life some gift baskets with what they need to help them through whole Christmas holiday. I didn’t get to it, but I thought I’d share the idea in case there’s a lady in your life who deserves it.
There’d be a little package marked “For Christmas Eve” and you’d include some cocoa and little nip of something vanilla or peppermint marked “Magic, For Cocoa.” Then, there’d be a package marked “For Christmas Morning,” and that would have something with A LOT of caffeine. Like coffee or tea, depending on the Mama. Finally, there would be a bottle of wine labeled “For Christmas Night- Mama’s Christmas Cheer.” And of course, I’d print this little booklet for them. Enjoy 😉
