On this week’s segment of The Good Stuff, Jerremy and a host of other children share what they put on their Christmas wish lists.

Doug heard everything from cellphones to a hedgehog.

But some of these children are keenly aware of how Christmas and the holidays are about much more than just presents.

“I live under a roof and a good house with my parents. I have lived a good life and that’s what I am blessed for,” shares one child.

And another exclaimed, “Its about Jesus’ birthday."

On Saturday at 6 p.m. at Louisiana Boardwalk in Bossier City, Santa will flip the switch to light up the Christmas tree.
