Tree Santa 23

One more day to go and things are looking a little sweeter in my neck of the woods. DH brought home a box of See's Candy's - a present from Dawn - thank you! Oh they were delicious! I felt very mean not sharing them with the kids but See's are just too good for children! Candy Canes are much better for children (and cheaper!). Candy Canes can be found in the UK but unlike the US its not traditional for them to be used as a tree decoration. Apparently candy canes had been around for years but it wasn't until around 1900 that they were bent into a cane shape and decorated with red and white stripes.
