Our kids are told to be good all year round but at Christmas-time they actually listen, because we’ve pretty much imprinted on them that they'd “better watch out” and they'd “better not cry”, because Santa Claus is coming to town.
In December they make a certified effort not to be on the naughty list as they start flipping through the pages of the latest toy catalogue. And some even write a little letter to Santa reassuring him that they’ve been nice, accompanied by a list of everything they’d like to see under the tree on Christmas day.
