    I'll just add another recipe I know he likes.

    Christmas cookies: Rum balls, maple shortbread and apricot blondies

    Toronto SunSurely the nicest task at Christmas time is making cookies. You may never steam a pudding, or make custard for a trifle, but cookies, now there’s an appealing project. Have fun in the kitchen!

    And yes, Dina, I do get some of the cookies. Here's a little secret: Santa brings back many of the cookies to share with the elves and I.

    How do you stay up all night? Are you tired afterwards?
  • 12/24/2013 5:59:43 PM via SMS Santa
    Hi Owen! Let's just say I typically spend December 26 with a warm fireplace, a good book and some hot cocoa :)

    Stella, who is 6 wants to know - "How do you and the reindeer go so fast?"
  • 12/24/2013 5:59:55 PM via SMS Santa
    Hi Stella! Reindeer are very motivated creatures and can do almost anything they set their minds to-- including flying as fast as they do!

    My favourite Christmas songs! At the very beginning of the chat, I included a list of my favourites (I do adore Justin Bieber!). 

    I'm sorry to hear that Santa hasn't sent you a letter back. I'll have to give him a little talk when we're finished our chat here.

    If you are tired you can spend the day at my house. My grandma is coming over and makes really good food.

    What do Santa and Mrs. Claus do during the summer?
  • 12/24/2013 6:12:09 PM via ScribbleLive Mrs. Claus
    A large portion of our year is taken up by preparing for Christmas Eve deliveries. But I do enjoy sneaking down south in disguise to visit people all over the world, and see what everyone's favourite toys are. Santa often joins me!

    What happens if you mix up my sister's and my toys? Can I trade with her?
