Every Christmas, Maureen follows old Santa on his route, and if he doesn’t eat all the cookies left behind for him, Maureen comes in and cleans up any remainders.
She always figured there was no harm in it and she was sure the old elf knew anyway. He always seemed to leave one or two cookies untouched.
One year, as Maureen was following along well behind the sleigh, she noticed Santa’s sack had developed a tear and some of the toys were falling out. Oh no! Santa didn’t seem to notice. Some of the children might not get their presents!
