Some ways to get on Santa's nice list are to always be polite, say "please" and "thank you" and help out with household chores, even without being asked, according to Claus.com. Making special Christmas cards or gifts for friends and family members during the holiday season may also help.
Santa is generous to those who are generous themselves. A sure way to be placed on Santa's nice list is to donate to local charities in the forms of money, food, toys or clothes, especially during the holiday season. Singing Christmas carols and spreading Christmas cheer also help people get on Santa's nice list.
