Last week my town celebrated Lagniappe. From Wikipedia -Lagniappe refers to "a small gift given to a customer by a merchant at the time of a purchase" (such as a 13th beignet when buying a dozen), or more broadly, "something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure."

This was the first year we attended and it was fun. All the little shops were open and had some good sales. Many of them were serving a little treat to draw you inside the store. The kids got to enjoy some cookies and hot apple cider after their visit with the big guy.
The kids really enjoyed talking to him, and even Lucas warmed up enough to give the beard a tug. We got there too late to take a hay ride, or any of the other fun things, but the kids were in it to see Santa anyway.
