Why cookies and milk?

  We all know that we leave cookies and milk for Santa and maybe a carrot for the reindeer. Ever since we were little we have been doing that, but have you ever wondered why we did that? Well, I have, so here is a little background knowledge about it. Back in the ancient Norse mythology, Odin, a norse god, was to said to have an eight legged horse named Sleipnir which he rode with a raven on each shoulder. During the yule season kids would leave out food for Sleipner in hopes that Odin would stop by and give presents in return for food. But over the years, it has changed to what it is today. All around the world it is different.
