For most of us, Christmas can be a tad stressful. And companies that assault us with terrible ads, grating songs and depersonalized cards only make things worse.

In the spirit of the season, I went on the air with Mark Brennae of CFAX 1070 and created a Santa’s list of wishes for brands that want to brighten, not dampen, the mood of their audience at Christmas.

Hope some of the tips help your brand this holiday season!
