Please note that the pressure mounts and mounts as Christmas draws near and you don't open the present. Coal is carbon, and under enough pressure it becomes diamonds. Wait for Christmas and you'll have diamonds -- big ol' rocks!

We were always told that the penalty for not believing in Father Christmas or doing something wrong in the run-up to Christmas was to find coal and ashes in our pillowcases (we didn't have stockings - you can get more in a pillowcase!). I assumed it was spent fuel from the sleigh.

What kind of sleigh runs on coal, Anne? Who ever heard of a steam-sleigh? & what then would the reindeer have been for?

Mind you, we had pillowcases too — greedyguts or what! I wonder Father Xmas would ever visit such greedy children as you & me at all - except perhaps, as in the German tradition, to get the birch from his sack for our bottoms instead of the prezzies for our stockings...!

I hope you're not expecting me to have been logical or scientific about how the sleigh was powered ... I just thought that if Father Christmas had coal and ashes to distribute it must come from somewhere. And we didn't consider that we were greedy, but pillowcases were simply the normal thing for us to put out on Christmas Eve, a tradition that obviously came from our parents. It was only later on that I realised some people really did use stockings.

Michael, I did indeed realise your post wasn't entirely serious ... but I was also intrigued at my own childhood logic (or lack of) and the memory that pillowcases were so much the norm in our house that stockings seemed amazingly exotic. Mind you, I had friends who received Father Christmas presents that were mind-bogglingly expensive by comparison with what we had in those pillowcases - every family has its own traditions, clearly.

Dear Santa,

I hope you're feeling better.

My present apparently came Friday night, delivered by elves while I was out at the FSGW open sing. Since it came earlier than expected, Hash & McGhee the house brownies who are guardians of my townshack and who know the drill, got Molly-kitty to let them in and they saw to it that the elves and reindeer were well provided for, as promised. Apparently they partied quite loudly for some time and I heard about it from the neighbors the next morning, so I covered for them and had to take the blame for it all, as well as having to do a little clean up. Apparently, elves like single malt and Buddy Guy & Junior Wells on the box cranked up to the max!

I may use my UK atlas that a friend gave me while I was over there to narrow down the whereabouts of my Santa, but promise the present will wait to be opened on Christmas morn.

So thanks in advance. I'm sure it will be wonderful, as I've been doing this for a few years and my Santas haven't let me down yet. I've gotten to meet a lot of them at a later time and they've been fine folk without fail. I hope I've done as well for my Santees. This has become a fun and cherished tradition for me.

Very relieved to hear the package made it despite the recalcitrance of certain reindeer and one or two elves - You gave them single malt? That was indeed a foolish, if generous, decision. You realise now they are never going to be satisfied with the standard issue supermarket sherry? I'll never hear the last of it. However I know you acted with the best of possible intentions. Or perhaps the single malt was consumed in an excess of party excitement?

At any rate, I hope you enjoy the contents of the package and that you have a very merry Christmas indeed.

Dear Maire-aine--My box arrived! I am delighted! We opened the outside box and I am saving the wrapped things for Christmas, which will really mean 12/29, because we are going to our daughter's house on the 22nd for the holiday. You hit all the nails right on the head with the other stuff. We love maple syrup, and that jug is just right to go along to Pittsburgh for the Christmas waffles, and we love dried cherries. We haven't had Michigan's version of either, before. The calendar makes it look like your community is the place to be for fun and culture. Thank you, thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity, and I'll write again after I get to open the surprises.--Love, Jenn

Other than a large goofy reindeer head for the front doorknob and a little prickly hedgehog ornament that poked out, the rest of the goodies will wait for the Day. And there's simply no clue as to who you could be......

The maple sugar candy is proof of a divinity. I bought some artisan bread for the spread, Will try it later. The refrigerator magnet is on my fridge, next to one that Sinsull sent me a few years ago. The ocarina sounds fine. Thanks, BG. It's all greatly appreciated.

Ahhhhh, Sarah!

I'm glad to see that if you were overcome by temptation enough to open your box of local treasures upon arrival, you were also overcome by joy ("gobsmacked", as it were) at the contents! I find cheap but wonderful goodies all year round and put them into a large box to be redistributed when Holidays and Birthdays come around and that way I can deal in quantity as well as quality and actually have some things to give that I might actually believe in.

If you are on Facebook and look up Severn Savage, you'll find far better photos to draw your cartoon portrait from than the one on Mudcat.

PM me at some later time to let me know which recordings you liked best, as I gave you a fairly wide range to sample.

Enjoy!
Santa

I enjoyed the correspondance and clues.
