I took my 5 1/2 year old twins to see Santa. He told them to leave him his favorite cookies - peanut butter cookies. My non-peanut allergy daughter said "We don't have peanut butter in our house." Santa told her that we will have to go and buy some. At that point I told him that my daughter was allergic to peanuts. He seemed suprised and then suggested chocolate chip cookies which my non-pa daughter hates. My daughters just kept looking at him stunned and finally Santa just said How about some sugar cookies. I was stunned at the whole conversation!

such a shame about santa....maybe its because an old man and the older generation just dont understand allergies. !
when my son was small we wrote him a letter and told him all about williams allergy and the fact that he didnt want any one in his house to have a walnut mixed in his pressies from santa ( in my day we had a small bit of coal to remind us that we hadnt been totally good all year, an orange and a walnut)
Leaveing a snack for santa does give us a small headache. we leave a glass of sherry and a mince pie. Which if you buy a pack are always full of nut traces. oh, and a carrot of course for the reindeer.

The Santa that we went to see said that his favorite kind of cookie was ROUND!
The kids all thought that was funny.

Our letter to santa was answered beautifully... they ask us to include some information about the child so they can personalize it.. I mentioned all her activities, her love of school and of course her peanut allergy. Included in the reply was a mention that 'Sparkle' (one of the elfs) was allergic to peanuts too and loved to eat healthy foods like fruit and vegetables etc.
Oh yes and we leave carrots for the reindeer too and a bucket of water (DD insists they are thirsty from flying!)
