Why is Santa so jolly?
He knows where
all the bad girls live.
What could happen if we all decided to be naughty and leave Santa champagne instead of the usual milk and cookies? He’d probably lose his love handles, run Rudolph ragged on a wild joyride, and mix up the addresses of our chimneys. Nothing wrong with any of that–worst case, we just might end up finding better gifts under the tree!
Whether you’re traveling (with reindeers) or not, enjoy nibbling on these happy holiday travel treats:
