  • The Best: Christmastime favorites

    When my daughter was little, we would make a special treat for Santa Claus every Christmas Eve. We would put the treat on a Spode Christmas plate near the stockings, and we would all be so excited on Christmas morning to see only a few crumbs left on the plate. We knew by the overflowing stockings that Santa had come, but we were so glad we had been able to give him a little sustenance to help him get through his long night.
