    When I was a kid, our neighbor loved to tease my dad and gave him an entire bucket of coal for Christmas as a gag gift. He used it in our fireplace. (He was in his 50's at the time [​IMG] )

    If your child still believes in Santa, then I wouldn't do the coal. I would've been tramatized if Santa really thought I was a bad kid. If she doesn't believe anymore, go for it, then it's just a family thing.

    Oh, I got one better than that. One Christmas I gave my brother a great gag gift- a (taxidermy mounted) chicken leg that looked like it was giving him the "bird" (middle finger)! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I don't think you should do that. Your child would be upset to find coal in her stocking. [​IMG] How about you give her something nice like always? That would make her happy. [​IMG]

    Some stores sell "coal" that is actually candy. My kids have gotten that in their stockings.

    When Steven was 3 I gave him lava rock,, no coal here,, he pulled it out and his eyes got huge, and he said "Oh mom,, poor Santa,, he murdered a snowman!" and I said what/?? He said "He put him in my stocking and he melted, all that's left are his eyes!"
