Christmas is a time to spread happiness and share joy all around. It's a time to exchange gifts and make each other feel special. Christmas is a particularly joyful time for children - unless of course, they have been naughty throughout the year. Of course, no child wants to receive coal from Santa. However, coal may not be the only incentive to keep the kids in line.
All around the world, there are many different Christmas stories, and some of them have much harsher penalties for naughty children. Take for example the Icelandic legend of Jólakötturinn, or the Yule Cat, who eats small children who don't receive new clothes before Christmas night.
