Ho ho ho, it’s the week before Christmas and Santa’s probably already decided whether you’ve made the naughty list or the nice list this year. But I’m hoping there’s still a little time left to change his mind, so here are a few of the naughty and nice photos I’ve snapped on my travels.
Sticking used gum anywhere but in the garbage would definitely qualify you for the naughty list, but I promise I never, ever contributed to Seattle’s Gum Wall of yore (it had a major cleaning job done on it this past November so is looking decidedly less gummy at present).
Nice – or playing nice at least – this little raccoon in Central Park who won me over with his little button nose and giant paws.
Naughty and nice at the same time – a good old-fashioned southern joggling board in Charleston where nice young ladies and nice young gents could innocently get up to no good.
Which list will you be on this year, and would you like to create your own interpretation of this week’s theme? If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Naughty or Nice
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
- Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.
How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world. – Shakespeare
If you haven’t got anything nice to say about anybody, come sit next to me. – Alice Roosevelt Longworth
Had to laugh. At first glance, the top picture looked a lot like a wall of used condoms. I thought that was why it was naughty. 🙂
Haha Marie, that would have definitely made the naughty list. 🙂
(And so did I….
How naughty of us!)
Oh that’s hilarious, I’ll never look at that photo the same way again. 🙂

I’ve seen Rocky before; I’m a sucker for cute animals. The mind joggles over that board. https://regionalcognisance.wordpress.com/2015/12/19/naughty-or-nice/
Hi there Mick, love your post, so many cute little critters. That last little guy, he gets a nice vote from me, those eyes! xxx

Joggling boards always make me think of naughty children. My cousins and I used to line up on them and “joggle” them so violently that our bottoms (especially the people in the middle) would go flying up in the air, like we were little pancakes flipped by a spatula. Of course, our parents would scowl, and we’d bounce even higher.
Oh how much fun, wish they’d been around in Ireland during my childhood. 🙂
