Santa Claus is coming to town! This classic holiday song has been a favorite of mine (and so many other children and adults alike) from the very first time I heard my mom sing it to me. It has remained a dearly loved song as I have shared it countless times with my own family and so many nieces, nephews, and friends too. The original song was written in 1934 by Broadway composer John Frederick Coots and lyricist Haven Gillespie, and it was an immediate hit! Over the years it has been recorded by various artists including Big Band musician Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra in 1935 and in more recent years by "The Boss" Bruce Springsteen and of course, the ever popular version by "Songbird Supreme" Ms. Mariah Carey. During the holidays (and depending on the situation it may not have even been the holidays!), my mom would remind my siblings and me that "He's making a list, Checking it twice, Gonna find out who's naughty or nice." Well this little reminder was definitely a catalyst to be extra nice so I wouldn't find any coal in my stocking on Christmas morning! Zoey's Attic Personalized Shirts & Gifts has had lots of fun making shirts and gifts for the holidays with this "naughty or nice" theme.
