1. Please provide up to 12 family names, including the child's first name to appear on the stockings across the mantle (left to right) and on Santa's list of who has been nice.
2. There will be exactly the same number of stockings across the mantle as the number of family names you provide. For example, if you provide 3 family names, there will be 3 stockings.
3. Santa's "Nice" list will start with the names you have provided and add other names to fill the page with 12 names. If you provide 12 names you will recognize everyone on Santa's "Nice" list. If you provide fewer than 12 names you may not recognize all of the names on Santa's "Nice" list because we all know the world is filled with nice people even though we may not know their names.
