During the Great Depression, in the 1930’s, parents used cookies to teach their children a valuable lesson in being charitable.
Parents with their children would bake chocolate chip cookies and placed the goodies in the stockings for Santa Claus and it would be accompanied by a glass a milk. In theory, the cookie would be removed by Santa Claus for a delectable treat prior to him putting gifts from the elves in the Stocking. The premise was to show the children that Christmas is all about giving and not receiving! These traditions are routine for us now, and we often do not think about how they began. We have to add that the fun part is to see how the traditions evolve. The cookies and milk is accompanied now with a letter often to Santa. It is fun to revisit how these traditions initially began and at RE/MAX Capitol Properties, it is a good reminder to us to remember that the season is all about giving back. That is the root of it all.
We love our community and to us the holiday season is most certainly about giving back. We invest in our community because we sincerely care about where we live and work. The holiday season is a time for us to stop and reflect on just how important this is!
