Growing up I was always told that you had to be good or Santa would bring you nothing but Coal.

Well that was enough to scare any little kid into being good.  So, for years and years, I would be on my best behavior out of fear of getting coal rather then toys from Santa.

Well, the other day, my sister came over and brought me a bag of "coal" saying she thought I was being naughty and Santa asked her to give this to me.

My heart skipped a beat.  What!  Santa really did give coal to naughty girls and boys.

I sat the bag aside.  I didn't want to be reminded that I was not as good as I thought I had been.

Then I thought I should face the music and check out just what this coal is all about. 

Well, I noticed you could unwrap the coal.  So, I did.  Low and behold, it was yummy candy inside. 

So yummy in fact that I'm now going out of my way to be a bit naughty so Santa will bring me more.

I no longer have any fears of getting "coal" for Christmas...in fact, I look forward to it.
