Santa's little secret

Australian man: I can’t make it on Wednesday (Christmas Eve) as I have to prepare the cheese sandwiches and whisky for Santa and carrots for Rudolph. I don’t trust my wife to do it right.

British man: Santa gets cheese sandwiches for Christmas?

Australian man: They’re cheaper than Christmas mince pies.
