“I was just looking through my naughty and nice list and I noticed that the naughty list is getting longer; maybe this is because you’re getting a bit bored during this awful virus.”

Mr Christmas reminded children to do more nice things during lockdown, such as tidying their toys and helping parents or carers around the house.
