Day 24 (continued): For Santa

Another Christmas Eve tradition is to leave out a mince pie and a little drink for Father Christmas, and a carrot and bowl of water for his reindeer. Thish year Shanta had Ginger Wine whisch he enjoyed muchly (hic!)




Another badly-photographed page, sorry! Gosh, anyone would think I'd been at the ginger wine myself! ;-) *edited to say - updated now with a better photo!

The background is the back of the Crate Paper, with a large (in focus!) photo attached, an offcut of stripy patterned paper edged with my threading water punch, and Me & My Big Ideas alpha stickers for the title.

Not sure the ginger wine is a good idea for Santa....sounds like he may never want to move on from your house!!!!
Love the page though.

I thought Santa seemed a bit wobbly by the time he got to us! That's a great memory to record

Ginger wine...hmm I've got some in the drink cupboard... why didn't I remember it - then D wouldn't have got the drink, I would!
Great Page (glad the photo was in focus - at least you took it before the wine was gone...)

Now wonder Santa is the shape he is if everyone is leaving him mince pies and something warming! I miss those little traditions that we had when the children were young. And our 'Santa' misses his glass of port as well ;-)

I love this, we were never allowed to leave Santa alcohol as Mum didn't want to promote drinking and driving! So Santa had a coffee left for him to sober him up!
