I wish I could take credit for this cute idea but it comes from a friend and ex-co-worker of mine. When they were children her father on Christmas eve right before bed take the kids outside and give them each a starlight mint. They each made a tiny little hole and planted their mint (seeds) in the ground. They then went to bed. Their father told them that when Santa came he had so much magic it would make the mints grow. After they were asleep he replaced the mints with Candy Canes. She told me it was the first thing they looked for
in the morning and that told them that Santa had come. I love that
I've been an awful good girl,
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight.
