Christmas Eve

When I close my eyes and think about Christmas Eve, I wonder what Santa’s last meal would be before he set off on his gargantuan journey.

If I was Santa, I would devour hot, steaming sausages with creamy mashed potato topped with deliciously thick gravy. This main course would give me energy and keep me warm throughout the icy evening. For dessert, I would plump for a sugary biscuit (just like the one at school) to keep me alert should I have to escape from any family pets that might detect me!

What do you think Santa would eat for his last meal?

Try to use descriptive language.
