Mixed up gifts

What is the funniest gift mix up in your family?

I remember one year I got men’s jocks and my uncle got some sewing things (destined for my cousin) – my Grandmother had mixed up some gift tags. SO we all very cautiously opened our gifts from there on as we never knew exactly whose gift we were opening!

Meaningful letters

Writing letters to Santa is one of the main entertainments for children at Christmas. With over 120,000 letters sent to Santa last year through the Australian post it’s now time to start thinking what to write in this years letter to Santa.

Sometimes kids write amazing things in their Santa letters. Instead of asking for a toy or a play thing they sometimes ask for things from Santa that are more heart felt and meaningful. And sometimes they write something very funny and amusing.

Do you remember anything you asked Santa for in a letter? What about anything amusing or special your children asked Santa for?

Has anybody in your family ever kept copies of Santa letters as a memento?

Because it soots him!

It was nearly Christmas when Santa was walking into a building with a kind lawyer and an honest politician. They saw a $10 note lying on the ground and one of them picked it up – which one picked up the money?

Santa of course – the other two don’t exist!
