August 29 – a visit to Santa’s farm

Santa keeps a farm in Southwestern Ontario where he grows all his crops for the year. Below is a list of items he produces and who uses them.

  1. Sugar Cane – Grown under the bright lights of a factory building.  Santa uses the sugar for his cake and confections on Christmas Eve.

  3. Sugar Beets. – Another source of sugar for Candy.   The elves also go CRAZY for them.
  4. Watermelon – Grown for the Labour Day picnic in September.  Used in various games during the party and to eat of course.
  5. Pumpkins – As Halloween nears the Elves dress as ghouls and ghosts and pumpkins are piled high in the streets.  There is a giant Jack O’Lantern wall on main street on Halloween night to scare away the bad spirits.
  6. Cosmos flowers – Used as currency with the Fairies.
  7. Wheat – For flour for Molly’s cakes and confections.
  8. Peppermint – Molly uses it in candy, cakes, gum, bubbles and potpourri for the Christmas gifts.  She also chews leaves of it as she walks.
  9. Grapes – To make the wine to celebrate New Year’s Eve.  Santa grows both green and red grapes.
  10. Blueberries – For Christmas morning pancake breakfast of course.
