Santa’s List Day

santas-listDecember 4 is Santa’s List Day! Everyone has deadlines – even Santa Claus.

Today is the day that Santa is finalizing his list and checking it twice. His helpers have been diligently keeping tabs on you and everyone you know and are now reporting back so the man in the red suit himself can make his final revisions. The question now is – have you been naughty or nice?

If you have not been on your best behavior this year, don’t expect much to pop up under the tree for you, aside from maybe some sad looking sticks or a box full of coal. As for all you good kiddos out there, the moment you have been waiting for is fast approaching, so we hope you have been dropping the proper hints about that perfect present you’ve been dreaming of. Hope may not be completely lost for you if you haven’t been the nicest. You’ve still got 21 days until the most anticipated day of the year, so go out there and do as many good deeds as you can! Perhaps you’ll redeem yourself… you never know who is watching!
