Are your dogs aware of the five Christmas Eve rules? It is super important to follow these rules every year on Christmas Eve. Bailie and I decided we better post them for any dogs who may have forgotten, or are little puppies.
5 Christmas Eve Rules For Dogs
1. Hang Your Stockings
Make sure your stockings are all hung with care well in advance of Santa’s arrival. He will need a place to put all the stocking stuffers. If you have a cat like our cat bro Bert, Santa can’t leave stuff on the floor. Bert would break into our gifts during the night. Our stockings have been hung up in anticipation for weeks now. We didn’t ask for much this year, but we still don’t want the cat in our stuff.
2. Don’t Use The Fireplace
This point should be simple common sense. Santa is not going to jump through fire to deliver your gifts. We have a gas fireplace, so we turn it off early to make sure it is cool when the big guy arrives. If he burns his own behind, I don’t think he will leave any gifts behind!
3. Waiting Up For Santa Is Naughty
Never wait up, trying to get a glimpse of Santa Claus. If you are awake and waiting, he will not deliver, no matter how cute you try to look. The time to see Santa is before Christmas so you can tell him about your list. We visited the big guy a couple weeks ago, and we also got our nice list confirmations. If your cat waits up, I don’t think it is a problem. As you probably know, cats don’t follow rules. Cats do whatever they feel like at the moment.
4. Leave Treats And Drinks Out
Travel is tiring, and it makes a dog hungry, I know this because I travel a lot. Bailie has traveled even farther than I have. Can you imagine going around the entire world in one night delivering gifts? Wow! We leave out cookies and milk for Santa, but don’t forget the engines for the sleigh, the reindeer. It’s important for them to keep up their energy, so we leave out carrots, reindeer treats, and a big bowl of water for them. Santa and the reindeer always appreciate the kindness.
5. If You Hear Santa On The Roof, Stay In Bed
Every sleigh has a bad landing now and then when landing on so many rooftops in one night. If you are awakened out of your sleep by the loud thud of a sleigh, do not get up! Stay cozy in your bed, and pretend to go back to sleep. Santa doesn’t mean to wake any pups up, but it can happen.
If you follow these simple five Christmas Eve rules, Christmas morning should be a fabulous time of finding all kinds of gifts from the big guy in the red suit!
