Santa’s List Day is observed annually on December 4. While no one knows the true origin or creator of the holiday, Santa himself is the prime suspect. Throughout the year Santa and his elves have been busily checking on children all over the world and categorizing them by their behavior—naughty or nice. It has been reported that while Santa looks over his list on this day, he reviews and adjusts it all the way to Christmas Eve. If you fear your name may appear on the Naughty List, now is the time to do something about it. Visit the library and check out our self-improvement books. You have 20 days to get your name off the list. Good luck!
