Plan for Santa Time

by Debra Sabrusula, Tastemaker in Residence


We began a tradition of putting all the presents under the tree after the children are in bed because Santa delivers the presents on Christmas eve at our home.

Many times, I found myself up till  the wee hours of the morning, arranging the gifts. Rather than staying up late, I now get up early, put the gifts under the tree, make a soothing hot tea, start the fire and enjoy a few moments of quite time before the chaos begins.

How is this possible? Santa now delivers each person's gifts in a large red cloth sack. As the gifts are wrapped, they go into the appropriate sack hidden until Christmas morning. 

Makes for a merrier Christmas!
