Mrs. Claus is kindly answering some of your questions for me. Today, she answers a question that is near and dear to my… tummy! Why Does Santa Like Cookies So Much?
Keep reading for her surprising answer (with the secret reason) to this question from one of her fav people!
Well dear, that’s a great question.
And I will let you in on a little secret… I was not a very good baker at the beginning.
But you see, we do not have many people here in the North Pole. Or ingredients. So I did not know what to bake or how to bake.
So many, many years ago, Santa visited a friend from the United Kingdom on Christmas Eve. This was before Santa even gave away presents!
His friend gave Santa an unusual dessert called a mince pie. After the first bite, Santa’s eyes got big… He loved it!
So he begged for the recipe. Then, he found the ingredients so I could make it too.
So I learned the new ingredients and read the traditional recipe line by line. I baked my own mince pie. And guess what? Santa smiled and sighed. He loved mine too!
That’s when we realized I wasn’t a bad baker at all… I just had bad ingredients!
Why Does Santa Like Cookies? The Secret Reason!
That is why Santa loves eating your delicious cookies. Because he was eating bad cookies for years!
So Santa and I put our white-haired heads together…
How could we get better ingredients so I could bake better desserts?
Because we thought…
There must be cool ingredients, yummy recipes and different traditions around the world!
And today, Santa loves sampling new cookies every Christmas Eve.
But he fondly remembers the first tasty mince pie I baked for him.
Eating cookies at Christmas reminds him of this delicious discovery.
A small act of kindness from a friend opened up a new world of possibility.
So the next Christmas, I gave Santa an idea. To leave his old friend a small present to say, “thank you kind sir.”
And you know what?
His friend loved the gift so much… that Santa decided to start giving gifts every year.
And the rest is history!
All My Christmas Love,
🤶 Mrs. Claus
