Sharing stories at Christmas

At Love Santa, we love Christmas and Santa and all the magic that goes with those celebrations. We love to share that happiness and to hear people’s stories and ideas.

So we invite you to tell us your favourite Christmas story on this blog – whether you just make others smile or you share a great tradition/idea, your contribution will brighten the Christmas magic so what are you waiting for?

Simply share your story by writing it in the form. We’ll check it is ok (just to keep out any spammers and non-family friendly content) and make it live so your story is shared.

Christmas and Santa humour

There are many jokes and funny stories relating to Christmas and Santa so we’ve started a new category dedicated to thsoe funny bits of Christmas.

You can add jokes and riddles, poems and stories, as well as the real life thigns that happen to us around Christmas that make us laugh (including the thigns kids say and do!)

Here are a couple of jokes to get you smiling…

What do monkeys sing at Christmas?

Jungle Bells, Jungle Bells

Why does Santa have 3 gardens?

So he can go HO Ho Ho

Why does Santa always go down the chimney?

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!

Christmas Trees

What sort of Christmas tree do you have?

There is nothing like the smell of a real tree in the house – it is fresh and very Christmassy. I think the Christmas tree smell is so related to Christmas for us in Australia as it isn’t a common smell for us – and it is very different to the smells of our bush and gum trees!

Not everyone likes the pine needles across the floor or having a bucket of water in the lounge room, so some people prefer an articifical tree. Over a period of years, the artifical tree is the cheaper option, too.

Personally, I love the real tree – the smell, the sense of Christmas – but have an issue with killing a tree just for my pleasure so we use an artificial tree in our house. However, we also decorate trees in our garden for the real tree affect.

I just saw a collection of Christmas tree stories in this blog, too. But I would love to hear about your Christmas tree preferences and memories – maybe an Australian collection will be very different from a northern hemisphere one?

Christmas Memories and stories…

Christmas brings many images to mind – rushing around getting gifts organised, preparing food, visiting family and friends, decorations everywhere, end of year projects/assignments being finished, cricket season, and so on.

There are so many different ways to celebrate Christmas, too. Especially when you consider the variety of family size and structures now, and how many people don’t live close to family.

This section of our blog is for sharing those traditions, ideas and stories that have made our Christmases what they are. Hopefully, reliving the memory will bring a smile to your face and the face of others. And it may just start a family tradition for others, too.

Favourite Santa stories and memories

From the time we’re one or two years old until we’re about 10, we get a special visit from Santa on Christmas Eve. We also see Santa at special events, shops, parks and in books and movies.

Some families have special traditions for Santa – like leaving the same snack every year, hanging up stockings, finding presents under the tree or on the bed. We love hearing about these traditions, so pelase share them in this category of our blog.

Your special stories can go in here, too – those one off things that happened that hold a special place in your heart.
