  • Video: What kids want for Christmas

As we inch closer to Christmas Day, children all over the suburbs are hoping their wish lists haven't fallen on deaf ears. In what has become an annual tradition, we went to the mall and gave kids a microphone to find out just what they'll be dreaming of on Christmas Eve. And as usual, the kids did not disappoint.

Some had multiple requests, others were sure of just a few things they wanted. Some even came with lists a mile long. But they all brought a holiday-sized helping of cuteness. There's no doubt that goes a long way in ensuring Santa treats them all well this Christmas.
