• In order to stay on the “nice” list and avoid your name appearing on the “naughty” list, make sure to be kind and helpful to your siblings, parents and friends. So no more making your brother cry or pulling your sister’s hair or driving your parents up the wall.  Santa has a very special “spy” bird called the Robin who keeps an eye on all the little girls and boys in the run up to Christmas Eve to ensure that they are on their very best behaviour.  All naughty deeds are reported back to Santa directly….. you have been warned !
  • Stock up on plenty of baking ingredients such as ginger, icing and sweet mincemeat to make plenty of yummy treats this festive season.
  • Santa Claus and his hardworking elves spend all year making the beautiful toys that will be delivered to all the good girls and boys on Christmas Eve. However, every year, they forget to pack the batteries with the toys.  So maybe it’s a good idea to stock on extra batteries as to avoid tears on Christmas Morning.
  • Don’t forget about the Reindeers – they work tirelessly on Christmas Eve and are so grateful for a drink of water and a juicy carrot.
  • Shop local this year, I had a browse around Enniscorthy yesterday and I was amazed and the wonderful shops in the town. Picked up some lovely stocking fillers for Santa Claus and the Elves.
