Everyone has different traditions at Christmas, different ways of celebrating. Opening a present of Christmas Eve or only Christmas day, leaving milk or beer out for Santa, cookies or carrots for his reindeer, big Christmas day lunches or dinners. Many variances but probably loads more similarities between families.
Big there’s one variance that I don’t like. It’s not a really huge issue and the stupid thing is that it doesn’t hurt anyone…it just bugs me!
I know some families give their children only 1-2 gifts and the rest are from Santa. I think this rips Mum and Dad off from being seen as awesomely generous parents! As far as gift giving is concerned, I believe Santa brings one present to each child. Just one.
Never mind trying to figure out how he gets to every house in one night with exponential population growth, or the effect of G-forces travelling at such great speed. He just doesn’t have enough space to fit 12 presents for EVERY child in the WHOLE WORLD into his sack on the sleigh… I don’t care how magical he is!
I remember having a Santa sack on the end of my bed as a kid and it was pretty big. Nowadays, they are enormous~Alex can stand up inside his! So perhaps I’m the odd one out here. Maybe I’m doing it all wrong.
So please tell me, how many presents does Santa bring to your house?
