    FOX NEWS FLASH Published 22 hours ago Santa's milk and cookies: The surprising history behind the popular Christmas tradition In the U.S. Santa eats more than 300 million cookies on Christmas Eve each year By Yael Halon | Fox News Get Fox Nation Access all Fox Nation previews Unlock By unlocking you agree to Fox Nation's privacy policy. Cookie Cutter Christmas  For decades, American children have been leaving out cookies and milk for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, but few people know how and when the holiday tradition began. In a special Christmas episode of Fox Nation's "At Home With Paula Deen," the celebrity chef breaks down the fascinating history behind the sweet tradition and how it inspired countries across the globe in a new episode of a "Cookie Cutter Christmas. "We can thank the Dutch along with other Northern Europeans for bringing cookies to America in the 17th century," Dean said. " After a change in import laws, inexpensive kitchen items like cookie cutters were finally allowed to be imported from Europe into the American market. From there, a bunch of new recipes started to appear and the cookies and traditions we knew from the Middle Ages began to evolve." According to one theory, the milk-cookies custom can be traced back to the 1930s, during the Great Depression. During that time of economic hardship, many parents tried to teach their children that it was important to give to others and to show gratitude for the gifts they received over the holiday. THE SURPRISING HISTORY OF THE UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER The custom eventually stuck, serving as an inspiration to countries across the globe who embraced their own versions of the popular Christmas tradition. British and Australian children leave mince pies and a glass of sherry. Children in Denmark leave a bowl of rice pudding, while those in Ireland leave Santa a good old cup of Guinness, explained Dean. "Hopefully one of Santa's elves are leading the sleigh after that stuff," she joked. "In America, it's estimated that Santa eats more than 300 million cookies on Christmas Eve each year," Dean said, adding, "no wonder he's got a little punch to him." https://www.foxnews.com/media/milk-cookies-santa-claus-christmas-paula-dean

    This retired couple made 1,400 toys to give away this Christmas Updated: 10:17 AM EST Dec 21, 2020 By Amy Chillag, CNN SHOW TRANSCRIPT A real-life Santa's workshop is churning out toys in Desert Hot Springs, California. A 26-year Army veteran and his wife have spent most of the last decade making toys in a woodshop behind their house. It's a labor of love that started as a hobby. "After retirement, I got bored and needed something to do," 72-year-old Mike Sullivan told CNN. The couple joined a woodworking club and one of their projects was to build toys for kids. "Christmas time, we had a chance to see the kids get the toys and see how much joy it was," said Sullivan. They were hooked. Seven years and thousands of toys later What started as a hobby seven years ago turned into a mission to give away their handmade toys to parents and their children. Mike and Judy Sullivan spend nearly every day in the shop. "We're both in good health and are able to be out here six to seven days a week for eight to 10 hours," Sullivan said. "It's so much fun, it feels like home here in the shop working things out." Sierra Sullivan Mike Sullivan, 72, says his two older brothers were carpenters who made him toys when he was a child. And it's something the couple, who just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, enjoy doing together. Mike buys the lumber, the drill bits and saws and makes the patterns -- cutting and sanding away. Judy is quality control and decorator. "I run my hands over all the toys and feel for something that's not supposed to be there -- a loose wheel or splinter," said Judy. She also spray paints and decorates. "The designs sort of come up in my head when I see the toys," the 71-year-old said. On a mission to comfort children in need This year, their toys were especially needed with so many parents out of work due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the economy. The Sullivans give away many of the toys outside their home in the Coachella Valley. They are extra careful scheduling folks at intervals to come check out the toys. "We try to enforce safe distancing and masking," said Mike. This week, they're delivering hundreds of toys to a kindergarten class, the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission and a church food pantry. They've mailed toys as far away as Indiana and Texas. Not only are the toys free, but the couple pays for the shipping although, they admit, that's getting tough. "As long as I can afford it, I can send them where I can," he said. Rescue mission development director Scott Wolf says the couple has donated their handmade toys for many years at Christmastime, and the kids love them. "We are going to give them to the kids in our family shelter to play with in their toy room and their playrooms." The Sullivans' toys will also be distributed to children during a drive-thru giveaway with social distancing, "making sure everyone is safe and happy and healthy." Couple's 15 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren are toy testers "All my kids and grandkids and great-grandkids get my toys," said Mike Sullivan. And sometimes they jump the gun. The couple makes trains, cars, trucks, pull and push toys (little alligators, elephants), ducks you put on a string and pull along behind you. They also make educational toys: alphabet puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, stackers with different size blocks on a pole. "They're constantly coming by the shop and toys just disappear with the kids." Judy Sullivan said they watch them play with the toys and see what they like and don't like about them. "If they drop a toy on the floor and break the head of a duck, we better reinforce that." While wood may seem old-fashioned, Sullivan's daughter, Sierra, says her 2-year-old son doesn't think so. "He's got all sorts of toys and his favorite thing he plays with is the train my dad made him and the stacker he carries around with him everywhere." Sierra Sullivan Some of the hundreds of toys the Sullivans hand make every year. Their grandchildren help by testing them out (and keeping them). Vietnam vet gets joy many times over Mike says while he's full of shrapnel from his service, that doesn't slow him down in the toy factory. "You have to adapt and overcome." He refuses to charge for his toys. Maybe it's because he knows what it's like not to have much money. "My dad was a miner, we were considerably poor," said the retired Army first sergeant, who grew up in Montana. His older brothers were both carpenters and made toys for him when he was a child. "Most of the things I got were handmade toys. They were wonderful toys, I know how much I enjoyed them and just hope that kids that get them now still do." His dad and brothers have long since passed away. "I'm the last of the family," said Mike, who fought in the Vietnam War and Desert Storm. But those memories stick with him and he inherited their love of wood. "We do it for those who are less fortunate than we are now." Their daughter says her parents spent $19,000 out of pocket last year on supplies (she does their taxes). The woodworking club the couple belongs to normally contributes another $3,000. But due to pressures from the pandemic, the club just can't chip in this year. "We don't go out a lot or spend a lot on things that are frivolous," said Sullivan. He says the hundreds of wheels and axles for the cars, trucks and trains are especially costly. With their kids' encouragement, they started a GoFundMe to help. Sierra Sullivan Mike Sullivan makes his own patterns and modifies others. He buys the lumber, wheels, axles and does all the cutting, drilling and sanding. Mike hopes anyone who wants a Christmas present next year will reach out to him, and he'll do his best to get it to them, wherever they are. He wants to buy a laser printer so that he can make double the toys they did this year. "We're a couple of old grandmas and grandpas doing what we do best," said Judy. "That's all there is to it."

    great deal?

    I agree that COVID aid should go to U.S. citizens, no one else. Also, the ARIA is meant to contain China expansionism, which is of great concern after what happened in Hong Kong. How and when it is contained is an issue for another thread. There's always Bing or Yahoo. Another good thread is what can this country do, if anything, to open up China. I don't know enough about the subject to even speculate.

    This is not the Debate Political Club. If you want to debate anything that is posted here, please start a thread there. I am trying to post accurate news & opinions about the election in this thread as a Republican. The MSM is so bias when it comes to Trump & Republicans, all you hear is HATE , HATE and MORE HATE!! Since we have almost a 70% to 30% Republican's voter edge in nearby counties, I think we should hear more of the things that are more important and TRUE about this election instead of the everyday MSM news "THERE IS NO SIGN OF VOTER FRAUD ANYWHERE"

    Anyone who supports this better not go into any stores, to church, family homes etc either. If they do they are hypocrites and they are dumb to think a store is safer than a restaurant where u are actually spaced out. There are a lot of dumb people out there anymore though.

    President Joe Biden

    This may start in the government, but will quickly spread to the cities, finally filtering down to affect YOU and YOUR way of life. Then those who thought it couldn't affect them will reel in surprise at the many ways it stops your normal life. Think of your children and grandchildren, who is fighting for them? Do you want your military might in the hands of someone who is already in cahoots with foreign powers who have vowed to destroy us? Why do you think an election is so important? Why do you think the presidential power MUST be in the hands of someone we can trust to give up everything to protect us, someone who calls on God for help and guidance?

    Not surprising. The yes percentage is about the same amount of this area fools that voted for Joe Biden.

    Fort Bragg soldier kills pregnant wife, turns gun on himself By Kenneth Garger December 23, 2020 | 9:32pm | Updated Enlarge Image Sarah and Keith LewisFacebook A Fort Bragg soldier fatally shot his pregnant wife — who was due on Christmas Day — before turning the gun on himself on Sunday night, according to reports. Staff Sgt. Keith Lewis, 31, allegedly carried out the fatal shootings while the couple’s 3-year-old daughter was with them at their home in Fayetteville, North Carolina, the Army Times reported. Keith Lewis was declared dead on scene. His wife, 34-year-old Sarah Lewis, was taken to the hospital, but she and her unborn child could not be saved. “It’s a complete shock. It’s like a horror movie,” Sarah’s aunt, Tammy De Mirza, told WRAL. “She was vivacious and fun and lighthearted and easygoing and really had a heart to be of service,” the aunt told the news station. Sarah was due to have her fourth child — and second with Keith, her second husband, the report said. The mother was also a member of the military until she had her first baby, family members told WRAL. Police in 2016 had responded to the Lewises’ home for a domestic dispute call, but no charges were filed, the Fayetteville Observer reported. FILED UNDER ARMY , DOMESTIC VIOLENCE , MURDER SUICIDE ,
