  1. The elves made Santa new mittens and turned his old ones into toy kittens #W8PAdvent @sueeves

  2. “Stop!” said Santa, “have you been good this year?”
    “Oh yes!” said Billy.
    “Then you shall have many presents!”

  3. St Nick was having trouble,
    His beard refused to grow
    But clever Mrs Santa
    Made a new one out of snow

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
