What lengths do you go to......??

To keep Santa alive and well with your children?? I love Jeff's story as to what he and his family do (the faxes and the map on the wall and things) Annette with her magic reindeer food etc.

What do you do to go the extra mile??

One year we were staying with my mum for Christmas - I think my son must've been about 4 or 5. I waited until everyone was asleep, including my mother. I went downstairs and found the biggest pair of boots I could lay my hands on. I then went to the fireplace (the fire had been out for a while so it was safe) and placed the boots in the soot and then "walked" them from the fireplace to the tree (I made sure I used the old fireplace rug!) I strewed (is that a word?!) a few leaves and twigs around and put a torn patch of red material on the edge of the fireplace (where Santa had caught his pants)

It was completely worth the horrified look on my mother's face to see the wonder on my son's!!!!!! Even at 16, he still remembers that Christmas
