December 4: Santa’s List Day

“He’s making a list,
checking it twice,
Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.”

December 4 is Santa’s List Day, but it seems there’s some confusion as to what that actually means. Some people say that on December 4 Santa Claus finalizes his list, but that doesn’t make much sense to me. If the list is finished on December 4, what’s the point of being good the next few weeks? 🙂

What think you?

To celebrate, I just found two versions of “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town” from fun Christmas movies: first, as sung by Fred Astaire at the end of the 1970 film of that name; and, second, the group effort at the end of “Elf,” since, as we all know:

“The best way to spread Christmas Cheer,
is singing loud for all to hear.”
