The Brief: A trending Twitter hashtag invites suggestions about what #NaughtyKidsGet this Christmas and holiday season.


The #NaughtyKidsGet Twitter hashtag is a take on the Chrismas naughty-nice duality. Stories say that while nice kids get presents in their stocking, naughty ones are stuck with lumps of coal.

“He’s making a list,
Checking it twice;
Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town”

Posts and tweets that include the “naughty kids get” hashtag playfully poke fun of how modern “naughty” kids are punished and what they may receive in their Christmas stockings this year. While some of these memes note how misbehaving children are often pandered to or have their behavior overlooked, some styles of discipline directly address such behavior with old and new-school punishment methods.
