What do kids around the world leave for Santa?

In North America it’s a tradition to leave Santa cookies by the baker’s dozen along with a nice glass of milk to wash it down. This ritual of leaving out cookies and milk for Santa (and sometimes carrots for his reindeer,) has become a tradition , but it’s not the standard worldwide. Australia…Santa starts his Christmas Eve journey with a nice cold beer. Sweden…..The good children of Sweden leave out a rich cup of coffee with cream to keep him awake for the rest of his journey. Denmark…..he can find a bowl of risengrod, or rice pudding, waiting for him on Christmas Eve. The Netherlands….. The children in the Netherlands leave gifts for Sinterklaas’ horse rather than the big man himself. Kids leave carrots, hay, and water and in exchange are given marzipan, chocolate coins, hot cocoa and mandarin oranges. Germany…personalized letters. Ireland…..a pint of Guinness and mince pie. Chile….a spongy, rich cake flavored with rum and filled with dried fruits and nuts…Ed
