  • Does Santa leave presents wrapped or unwrapped at your house?

    I've heard both options and wondered how this plays out. They've always been unwrapped at our house, and when I was a kid. Is this normal or is Santa just being lazy at my house?

    We wrap ours that go under the tree but the ones in the stocking are unwrapped.

    But now that I think about it, I would have saved myself a hella lot of time late last night had I NOT wrapped them.

    And then I would have had time for more important things.......like raiding this board ALL BY MYSELF!!! amirite, dewars?!?!?

        Oh yeah, we do the special paper (and then destroy all remains, as Sam would sleuth it out the next year) along with the different hand writing.

        And since Sam was extra questioning this year, we went above and beyond. First my husband took nibbles off the carrots that they left the reindeer and scattered them around our front yard. And then I actually went outside, dug up mud, and tracked it thru my foyer. I got my floors muddy.....ON PURPOSE!!!!!! Then we knocked over a kitchen chair on the way to the cookies (Santa was hungry....Washington is one of the last stops, you know?). And Santa left a note for the kids thanking them for the treats and welcoming Max to the world.

        It was quite a production.

        Can't wait til next year.

            We go to sililar lengths. I eat most of the cookies and milk. We use special paper, and I put reindeer ""hoofprints" in the snow this year. My girls always put popcorn out on the porch for the reindeer along with a bowl of water. I always crumble up some of the popcorn on the porch (reindeer are very messy eaters) and pour out some of the water. They get a kick out of it.

            I like the mud in the foyer bit , may have to try that one next year.

              I'm sure there's some buzz kill people that scoff that "misleading your kids" with this but it's fun as hell and they love it.

              I remember one Easter we were all staying at a place on the lake at Hot Springs when our kids were little. We found some guy running around in an Easter Bunny outfit and had him stop by. His costume looked like he drug it out of his dusty trunk and was in pretty bad shape. But damn, the kids were speechless when the "real" Easter Bunny stopped by.
