Christmas Eve and Thomas was responsible for leaving a snack out for Santa – cookies, brownies that we made a couple of days ago, a cup of milk and a beer. The beer is an Australian tradition that we started this year, inspired in part by An Aussie Night Before Christmas and also by the fact that the poor guy probably needs a cold one by the time he reaches us in the Pacific Northwest. I mean think about the miles he’s put in. He deserves it.
Thomas took his job very seriously. The cookies spelled out a special message. Oh, and the carrot is for the reindeer.
