What Would Happen If ..the Kids Ran Christmas?

The holiday season is a lot of fun for kids. Mine get hugely into the spirit of it all (even though I don’t play into it) and look forward to the 25th when presents, stockings and all that fun fills the day. My kids tend to go a bit ‘wild’ with all the excitement and fun that happens — over stimulated by all the music, lights and anticipation. Thankfully we tend to all do things strict to tradition — whatever the tradition is in our families.

Could you imagine though what things would be like if our KIDS ran Christmas the way they wanted? The craziness that would ensue for probably the entire month?

    If kids had Christmas their way, under their tree would be all the gifts on their wishlist and more. Imagine the fun!

    Oversized Christmas Trees
    Kids love Christmas trees. I bet if they had Christmas their way every house would have the biggest tree that would fit. Not only that but of course, they would not have to untangle any of the light strings.

    Houses Decorated Lke This
    I don't know about your kids, but for mine one of their favorite things about this season is the decorated houses. If they had things their way - all houses would be decorated enough to make you blind.

  • Huge Stockings 4 of 7
    Huge Stockings
    Stocking are typically an average size filled with trinket toys and small items. If kids had Christmas their way - stockings would be larger then they are and full of huge toys.

  • Cookies For the Kids 5 of 7
    Cookies For the Kids
    Kids like to leave cookies for Santa and his reindeer. If kids had things their way Santa would be leaving them cookies instead.

  • No Names on the List 6 of 7
    No Names on the List
    Kids are afraid of the naughty list. They don't want to be branded as bad and then not get any gifts. If they had it their way - there would be no such thing as a naughty list.

  • Elf on the Shelf Would Be Driven to Drink 7 of 7
    Elf on the Shelf Would Be Driven to Drink
    Oh if Christams was run by children I fear for the poor Elf on the Shelf. I swear he would be tortured, bothered and then driven to binge on alcohol and drugs.
