Being on Santa’s naughty list was one of the worst things that could happen to you as a child. One little slip up and say goodbye to that one prefect present you’ve been dreaming of all year long. What was it for Santa that pushed you over the edge and into naughty territory? Was it stealing some candy from the store, getting all F’s on your report card, shaving the cat, or throwing a Hotwheel at your sister and chipping one of her permanent teeth? (That last one was mine) Who does Santa think he is? Where does he get off playing judge, jury, and executioner with our holiday? Be good or you’ll get nothing but compressed carbon in your stocking? Geesh, hyper critical fat man. Well, I guess he DOES bring toys to everyone*. (some exclusions apply) So maybe we can cut him a little slack. And hey, maybe he can be reasoned with to get yourself back on his good side. So for this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” I asked you guys to try to make amends for you wicked, wicked ways with the hashtag #DearSantaSorryFor and WOW did a LOT of people have things to feel sorry for. We trended for over 9 hours in the US. Over 7 hours in the UK. Over 13 hours in Canada. And even trended worldwide for almost 8 hours!!!!!! I got to sort threw over 17,000 twets. Thank you all for playing, It was such a great Christmas present from you guys! So as a thank you I present not a top 10 but a top 12 Check out the list below and don’t forget to play along ever Tuesday and coming up Tuesday January 12th it’ll be our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of “Hashtag, You’re It”

#DearSantaSorryFor not believing in you. No wonder you became an isolationist people-pleaser with food issues. Self-esteem's a bitch.
