Santa Clause Traditions

Santa ClauseMy wife, Sally, is Scottish. I mentioned to her in passing one day that, when I was a kid, my parents would leave milk and cookies out on the kitchen table so Santa could have a snack when he showed up.

She looked at me with a horrified expression, then exclaimed, “Milk and cookies! That’s terrible!” She shuddered. “Santa’s a man, not a boy! In Scotland, we leave whiskey out for the poor fellow ’cause he needs something to warm him up on his journey.”
