A few years ago after watching the TV movie "Mrs. Santa Claus" with Angela Lansbury (GREAT holiday movie!), I realized that Mrs. Claus works just as hard as Santa! Why is she stuck home on Christmas Eve? Why should Santa have all the fun of delivering toys without her? Also, we want to show our kids that a married couple should be united in their goals.
On Christmas Eve, we set out carrots for the reindeer, as well as cookies and milk for Santa AND Mrs. Claus!
On Christmas Morning, when the kids rush in to find what Santa brought, they always check to see if the snack is gone and if Santa brought Mrs. Claus. Sure enough, both mugs are empty and the cookies are gone! How do we know if Mrs. Claus came along for the ride? Why, her lipstick is on the mug AND napkin, of course!
