1 Day to Christmas Countdown! - Reindeer Food on Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is finally here and at our house, we are especially excited about all the festivities in store. We also started a tradition last year of not only making cookies for Santa, but also something special for all of Santa's reindeer. Besides, without the reindeer, Santa wouldn't be able to travel around the world delivering all those gifts! Reindeer Food is the perfect snack for the reindeer to spot your house and to also enjoy while they wait for Santa to finish putting gifts under the tree. On Christmas Eve before going to bed, simply sprinkle the Reindeer Food outside where the reindeer may be waiting while Santa is inside doing his work. (We also throw in a couple of baby carrots for good measure!) These also make cute little gifts for the young ones to keep the holiday spirit alive...

Here's wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
May your holidays be filled with love, laughs and lots of food...

Reindeer Food on Christmas Eve

1/4 cup quick oats
1 tablespoon glitter
Baby carrots (optional)

Combine oats and glitter in a small bowl.

On Christmas Eve, sprinkle mixture outside where the reindeer can see it sparkle at night and nibble on it while Santa's inside delivering gifts.

Add a couple baby carrots outside if desired!
