Santa’s Breakfast

It is the holiday season again, why not have some holiday humour.  This was pasted into a hand written recipe book from L.L. Scopes.  Part of the Waiuku Museum collection.

Santa’s Breakfast

Santa Claus’ dear old mother

           Last Christmas got a fright,

Santa went out in the evening

           And of course, stayed out all night!

She had his breakfast ready,

           But it very soon got cold.

Said she: “I wish dear Santa

           Would come in when he’s told.”

She had ham and eggs for breakfast

           And marmalade and toast;

And sixteen roasted apples

           (All the things he liked the most).

But just when day was breaking

           He hurried through the door;

You may guess that he was hungry,

           For he didn’t leave a core.

 Moral: –

So hang your stocking early,

           Don’t make poor Santa wait,

For when his breakfast is ready,

           You mustn’t keep him late.
