So we don't have a fireplace, but we do of course have the wood furnace. My daughter is barely three months old this year but in the coming years I thought of starting the following the tradition: Our furnace is in the basement next to my workbench, so I thought what we would do is have her (once she's old enough) open the door to "leave it open for Santa" (no fire of course) and leave cookies and milk plus carrots for the reindeer on the workbench along with some wood next to the furnace. We'll tell her that Santa will come down the chimney, leave presents, and then start a fire on his way out so that we'll be snug and warm in our beds on Christmas morning. Anybody do anything similar? This is just too darn much fun. I post on a hunting forum a lot where guys set out their trail cams for Santa, dress up in a Santa suit and creep past it so wa'la-proof on Christmas morning!
