For the fourth year in a row, Sacramento’s Citizen Hotel has revealed its Naughty or Nice Santa list.

“Santa goes through and decides who in the local and popular culture has been naughty and who’s been nice,” said Amy Dempster with the Citizen Hotel.

The Giants made an appearance this year.

“Twice world series champions in three years, how could that be anything but nice?” Dempster said.

How about the Space Shuttle Endeavor?

“You could see people all over Sacramento enjoying seeing the last space shuttle fly over,” Dempster said.

What about those infamous Maloofs?

“They certainly haven’t helped bring the new arena to the city and do what I think a lot of people in Sacramento wanted them to do,” Dempster said.

And that troublesome Prince Harry?

“What happens in Vegas is supposed to stay in Vegas, but when you’re a naughty prince and there’s cell phone cameras around, word gets out what you’re up to,” Dempster said.

Although, some of these are up for debate.

“I don’t agree with Prince Harry. I think he’s a kid and he’s growing into his own. So naughty? maybe not so much,” said Sherly Stine, visiting from Fresno.

And some may be a bit confusing.

“I dont know what Gangnam style is,” Stine said.

In the end, the Citizen Hotel is really just trying to bring some cheer to people who decide to shop downtown.

“We think the holidays are about coming downtown and seeing the displays, going shopping, going out to eat and bringing your family, so we hope we can be a part of that,” Dempster said.
