Christmas Eve

Many years ago it was Christmas Eve and before going to bed I mentioned to my dad that we should put milk out for Santa. Dad said beer was a better idea. He told me that he was sure Santa preferred beer.

I told him that you were supposed to put milk and cookies out for Santa. Dad informed me that everyone put out milk. Santa would appreciate beer because it was something different.

I hope Santa liked the beer.

Merry Christmas.


  1. I told my kids Santa liked good whiskey. I kept a decanter under the cabinet and after I had a glass or two I would pour all but 2 or 3 shots into the decanter. I would leave the almost empty bottle and a hand written note thanking them for the libations. When they were 9 and 11 the note mentioned that milk gave me gas.

  2. I can't even begin to imagine how poor ol' Santa can manage to consume all that milk and cookies anyway, so I'm sure he appreciated a more adult nip. Our kids always insisted that he preferred a can of pop (and we never drank it so where that came from I'll never know!)
