The article title probably got you thinking: Why?
You’ve been good this year, haven’t you? You’ve spread goodwill, helped out various causes, engaged in selfless activities, and shared your successes with the less fortunate.
So, why on earth would you end up on Santa’s naughty list? You’re not being naughty. In fact, you’re so good people even praise you for it. And as luck would have it, you only to end up in Santa’s naughty list? Is that kind of a thing now? Where good guys get penalized for being good?
Let me tell you “in detail” why you are on Santa’s naughty list this year. Hear me out for a bit because this is something you don’t want to miss.
Clues To The Reason Why You’re On Santa’s Naughty List:
1. It’s for something you didn’t this year but last year. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be so sure why you’d be on Santa’s Naughty List as early as January!
2. It’s for something you’ve been doing for a long time now and you have absolutely no idea of it!
3. It’s something really important. This is not a drill.
The Reason Why You’re On Santa’s Naughty List:
Are you familiar with the slasher/thriller movie “I Know What You Did Last Summer”? Yes! I’m talking about that movie starring Freddie Prinze Jr, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Sarah Michelle Gellar. I know the flick didn’t really make it big out there but it sure has a pretty catchy title!
Let’s just say that what we’re going to talk about today is sort of a rendition (or should I say parody?) of the title. I’d like to call it Santa’s version: I Know What You Did Last Christmas.
Referencing on the same movie, the characters were dying one after another because of something they did last summer, right? Most of them didn’t even realize what it was they did! The same goes for you. But don’t worry; you won’t end up with the same terrible fate. You just won’t be getting presents this year – that is, if you don’t do something about it.
You are convicted of the crime: Conspirator In Producing Festive Waste.
If you wrapped dozens of presents last with no regard as to what type of material you used to wrap them, cooked excessive dinners that only spoiled the day after, and decorated your house with lots and lots of disposable plastic decorations, then you really are a conspirator to the crime.
According to Serenata Flowers, in the UK alone, we produce truckloads of festive waste and we don’t even know how and where they get dumped or whether they’re recycled for a better purpose or not. This is what earns each of us a place in Santa’s naughty list. We’re all naughty, whether we’re aware of it or not. This year, make it a challenge to do better. Try to celebrate a zero-waste Christmas. Use biodegradable gift wraps (or just don’t wrap presents at all!), prepare food that is sure to end up in everyone’s belly, and use green and natural decorations. There are many things you can do to improve your celebrations at home. Also, don’t do it just for Christmas but for other holidays as well!
