Christmas Cheer

Since it’s Christmas, I’m taking a time out from my usual blog posts to give you two Christmas riddles just for fun. I found these when I was going through some of Mom’s things. They were in an old Christmas book that my sisters and I read when we were little. (Answers come after the shadow picture.)

1. This belongs to Santa Claus, but you use it more than he does. Yet you don’t borrow, steal, or buy it. What is it?

2. What gets filled every morning and emptied every night except at Christmas, when it is empty at night and filled in the morning?

1. His name.
2. Stockings (When I asked this to my grandchildren, they didn’t get it until I explained that in olden days, socks were called stockings.)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
