Also, while food makes a great gift, please don't forget about those among you Southerners for whom a hot meal is a gift every day. My friends at The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, City Rescue Mission, Jesus House, Britvil Community Food Pantry, and Food and Shelter in Norman are among a few of those who can help get food to those who need it most. A little goodwill doesn't cost a lot, and the result is something the elves and I can't build in our shop.
Finally, I already can smell the cookies. Look forward to a glass of milk or maybe a cup of hot chocolate. But don't go to too much trouble. Even more than a good cookie (preferably chocolate chip), I like to know that you believe not only in me but in each other. Magic isn't just for jolly old elves like me; there's at least a speck of it in each of you.
