Track Santa via NORAD!

Don't forget to keep an eye on Santa's delivery route!  You can do it in 3D if you go to the official NORAD Santa Tracker.

He's heading to Florida as I type this!

Unicorn Poop! Get It While It's Hot!!!

Wait... eeeeeeeeeewwwww...

Never mind.  That title was way better in my head.

In all seriousness, though, I did mention unicorn poop cookies in Santa's Letter, and I'm sure that you'd love a recipe, right?


So here's a recipe by Jabouty.  Jabouty's unicorn poop looks like this:

I'm not a big fan of almond, though, so I found another recipe at without it:

But then I thought, "You know, rainbows and sprinkles are awfully nice, but I want MORE!
And so...

I found

I'm in my own personal uni-corny heaven.

I think I have a lot of baking to do.  How about you?

Smashwords Edition!
     "...Every year there were fewer stockings for him to fill. Of those that remained, he could feel very little of the magical energy that was necessary to keep everything on The Preserve running successfully.
     The reindeer would be fine for at least a few more decades. He knew that. There were only nine of them, after all: The original eight, plus Rudolph. Thanks to good old Moore and his poem, they weren’t in much danger at present. Nor, of course, was he.
    But what about the others? He thought about how the unicorns were fading fast, only recently brought back from the edge of extinction..." (exerpt)

Why Santeclaus?

Where in the world did this crazy lady's wonky spelling of Santa Claus come from?!

Admit it.  That's what you're thinking.  You've read Santa's Letter, and you're wondering why I'd make such a crazy choice.

No worries... other people are thinking the same thing.  How do I know?  Because they've asked me that very question.

Clearly, the Veil of Logic is at work here.

It's a good question, actually, and one I'm excited to answer.

In 1821, a story called The Children's Friend was published by William Gilley.  It may be the first published account of a gift-giving Santa.  It's a spectacular story (poem, actually), and has some wonderful illustrations.

But don't take my word for it!  Read it yourself, courtesy!
