If you have a chimney there is very important information North Pole Flight Command would like you to know. The chimney is Santa’s preferred means of getting into a house and it is easy to see why: if Santa can land on the roof the chimney give him fast access without having to get a ladder or some other means to get to ground level.
Not everyone has a chimney, and that’s okay. But if you do have one and you do anticipate Santa using it, North Pole Flight Command reminds you of the following tips for getting your chimney ready for Santa:
- Santa appreciates a clean chimney. Recent advances in the technology of Santa’s suit means that Santa himself will stay clean no matter how dirty your chimney is. But there are no guarantees what will happen to the presents Santa brings YOU. So you might want to make sure your chimney is clean before Christmas.
- Using your chimney on Christmas Eve is okay. In fact, Santa prefers that you do. He always says a warm chimney is much better than a cold one.
- Hanging your stockings from the mantel on your chimney is still preferred by Santa. It makes it fast and easy for him to put goodies inside of your stockings. Sometimes Santa has to hunt for stockings and that takes a lot of valuable time.
- Some people put milk and cookies out for Santa right on the fireplace hearth. Because of the heat of the fireplace, this can sometimes spoil the milk or the eggnog by the time Santa gets there. If you put in on a table or somewhere else where Santa can see it, the milk has a better chance of remaining cold.
We hope you find this advice helpful and thank you for thinking of Santa when it comes to your chimney!
