Sign outside Vero Beach house warns Santa Claus to stay away because of bad child

VERO BEACH -- A sign on 26th Street is drawing some attention for its warning to Santa: Stay away.

"Dear Santa, Please do not stop. Josh has been BAD!" warns the sign in front of a house on 26th Street between 47th and 52nd avenues.

The sign is a joke, Josh told a TCPalm reporter Monday. He is visiting his relatives, who live on the west side of Vero Beach.

Before he arrived, his relatives put up the sign to "rib" him, he said.

Initially, "I was angry, but now I laugh," the smiling boy said.
