Everyone knows that Santa only brings presents if you’ve behaved, but even so, kids tend to still act up in December. Maybe it’s the anticipation of Christmas or all of the extra activities that the holiday season brings, but parents may find themselves having to be more strict than they usually are.

One Australian mom found this to be true, and in order to get her kids’ behavior under control, she threatened to cancel Christmas. But she didn’t stop there. The mom wrapped up the Christmas tree and attached a note detailing just why she was threatening to cancel the holiday.

But when a photo of the tree found its way onto social media, internet users had many different things to say about the mother’s actions. Some praised her, while others had a very negative reaction to the idea of canceling Christmas.

The note, which is supposedly written by Santa’s “Elf on the Shelf” helpers, reads:

CHRISTMAS IS CANCELLED FOR NOW! IF you want me to keep visiting, a Santa visit + your free + presents back your behavior needs to improve.

The note explains that Santa is angry, and directs the kids to tell their mother that they’re sorry.

The kids were told that they have one week to improve their behavior.

If the note weren’t enough, the mom also wrapped up the Christmas tree, putting a halt to all holiday activities.

As you can imagine, people had mixed reactions to the mom’s actions.

People couldn’t decide if the idea was a great one or horribly cruel.

While some parents admit that they couldn’t ever cancel Christmas, they did say that they’ve used some similar techniques to get their kids to behave.

Others decided they didn’t have enough information to judge whether the mother’s actions were appropriate.

Of course, who’s saying that Christmas has to be canceled altogether? Naughty kids could just receive coal.

Hopefully, these kids improve their behavior and the family gets to enjoy Christmas.
