An Australian family visiting Newport Beach for the holidays made sure that Santa Claus would know where to find them on Christmas Eve.

Tim and Vicki Brewer and their kids Tianna, 9, and Jed, 7, put their Christmas tree out on the beach as a signal to the big man in red.

The night before Christmas, the parents were out by the tree biting into carrots and cookies and making reindeer “hoof” prints in the sand to make it look as though Santa had really stopped by, according to Newport resident Kent Blasiar.

At 7 a.m. on Christmas, Blasiar said, he could hear the squeals of Tianna and Jed, who joyfully discovered the half-eaten goodies by the tree.
