Holiday Sweets Could Drive Santa To Drink

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Leaving out holiday cookies and sugary candy for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve may drive Kris Kringle to hit the bottle.

According to alcoholism expert Kathleen DesMaisons, sugary snacks activate a part of the brain that is also affected by alcohol.

This means eating large amounts of cookies and candy this holiday can put you – and Santa – in the mood for a booze binge.

DesMaisons says leaving sugar-filled goodies isn’t a good idea and could lead to a drunken Santa getting a DUI when he drops off presents on Christmas Eve.

Say DesMaisons: “Leaving some cheese or scrambled eggs for Santa is great. He doesn’t get to eat any real food on Christmas Eve. With a long flight ahead of him, a home-cooked meal, instead of candy or cookies, will make him happy.”
