Does Santa Mouse visit your house on Christmas Eve? Being small, he is often overlooked, but he travels around the world with Santa Claus every year. If you leave a piece of cheese along with the cookies and milk and reindeer food, perhaps he’ll leave something for you. My sisters and I had a tiny Christmas tree in our bedroom. On Christmas morning, we would awake to find little packages tied to the branches, with little tags on the packages, addressed to each of us in the tiniest handwriting. My mother first introduced me to him through the pages of a book. I loved the story so much I had the entire thing memorized by the age of 2, reciting it with the same inflection as my mother. He still visits me, although he must be extra careful as I now reside with a few cats!
