How to Get on Santa’s Naughty List

1. Being Selfish

Santa hates it when people are selfish. He really doesn’t like it when people are self-centred and only thinks of themselves.

He loves it when people are generous, thoughtful, and selfless. Being selfish is a sure-fire way to get on the naughty list this year!

2. Not Sharing

Sharing is a very important value to Santa. He thinks sharing is caring. If you don’t share, Santa thinks it’s quite selfish and nasty.

Santa will always put someone who doesn’t share on his naughty list! Santa is always impressed when people share with their family and friends.  

3. Not Eating Vegetables at Dinner

Santa really doesn’t like when people don’t eat their vegetables at dinner. He thinks every person should eat at least 5 fruits and vegetables a day.

Good Santa knows that vegetables make us happy inside and out! Don’t forget to eat all your vegetables at dinner, otherwise, you may end up on the naughty list! 


4. Being Unfriendly to Parents

Being rude or nasty to people – especially mom or dad – will most definitely result in your name being added to the naughty list.

Try to be patient in the face of adversity. Instead of responding with anger, take a couple of deep breaths, and choose kindness instead.

Santa will be proud of you for it! We should always treat people (including our parents) with love and respect!

Parents do so many amazing things for their children every single day. Santa loves to see children appreciating mom and dad’s hard work! 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
