I grew up with the custom of Santa bringing candy and leaving it in dishes through out the living room and dining room. This was one of the exciting things we looked forward to as kids. We didn’t have a lot of candy on a regular basis in our house so, this was a huge treat.
Santa brought us some candy as well. And believe me, Santa really tried to use constraint in buying the candy!
Well, after allowing the princess one free for all day on Christmas, we have been letting her have a few pieces each day. Which is hard when she is looking at it all day long. And the bigger problem is Troy and I! LOL In the evening while watching TV, it is way to difficult to resist! And you can easily eat it without even realizing it!
So, now the candy is all in the cookie jar. It’s harder to get to and you are aware of getting it. We all still pick out a few pieces a day but, no longer is it in our face!
Do you have Santa candy and if so, do you leave it out until it is all eaten or do you put it away?
