Youngsters take heed because Santa’s List Day is December 4. Santa’s elves are getting impatient, so get your requests submitted before Santa has a mutiny on his hands.
What does that mean, you ask?
It means if the elves have to wait too long for your list, they’ll be faced with overtime conditions that might prompt a mass labor strike in Toyland.
In other words, you won’t get the goods. This is not the time to hold back in an attempt to appear humble or polite, no matter what your parents taught you.
Santa has had his eyes on you all year. Submitting this list is not going to make or break the deal for Christmas morning, so pick up your crayons and start writing.
The same goes for you grownups. Don’t pressure the elves to harness psychic powers and visualize what you want for Christmas. Such abilities could prove to be very faulty.
Take the guesswork out of giving by creating a wish list at one of the many online stores. Granted, this is not as magical as the days of writing to Santa’s elves with your crayons.
However, your friends and relatives will appreciate the ideas and you might avert the gift of a gaudy sweater or hideous knick knack your aunt found in the back of her storage unit.
Getting back to those elves, kids, it takes a lot of labor to construct Fingerlings, Barbies, bikes, and electronic gadgets. So it would be in your best interest to take Santa’s List Day seriously.
On Christmas Eve, to show your appreciation to the elves for getting all those gifts on the sleigh in such a timely manner, reward them by putting out an extra plate of cookies.
Leave a note for Santa, instructing him to take them back to the workshop. It will be an appreciated bonus with which the elves can begin their eleven-month vacation.
