I was never very happy with the idea of trying to bribe Santa to get more presents, but that did not stop me from trying. It was just too risky not to do it. Of course, the cookies I would leave out were never my favorites. Usually they were the oatmeal raisin cookies that my Mom would buy by the crate. Oreos were a rare commodity in my house, so it would have to be a big-ticket item I was angling for if I was going to leave a plate out for Santa.
