As the days until Christmas tick down, children across Craig and Moffat County are making sure they are ending up on Santa Claus’s Nice List. The Craig Press caught up with students at Ridgeview Elementary to see what they’re looking forward to the most this holiday season.

Craig Press: Are you going to make it onto Santa’s Naughty List or his Nice List?

Kash Eddie (3rd grade): I’ve been good this year.

Stella Trapp: (1st grade): I’m on the nice list.

Reid Tanton: (2nd grade): I’m on the nice list, too.

EllaMae Miller: (4th grade): I’m going to be on the nice list.

CP: What do you want for Christmas the most this year?

Kash: I want a PlayStation with Marvel Spider-man games — the Miles Morales one.

Stella: I want a blue electric scooter.
