Some children leave cookies beside the Christmas Tree, along with a glass of milk for Santa when he visits them on Christmas Eve. Also, a carrot is left for Santa's reindeer. On Christmas Day morning, there will only be cookie crumbs, an empty glass, and the top of the carrot left, as Santa and his reindeer will have left the presents and eaten the snacks.

In the United States, it is customary first for children to give or send a Christmas gift wishlist to Santa. On Christmas Eve, then, they often leave out cookies and milk for Santa and, in some homes, carrots for the reindeer. Similar customs exist throughout Europe, where some drink and snack is left for the jolly gift-giver.

This depends on the familial traditions and country-wide traditions. In the United States, children generally leave out cookies and carrots for Santa and his reindeer on Christmas Eve. On Christmas morning, they wake up and run downstairs to see presents under the tree and stockings filled with surprises on the mantle.
