The tweets from the Police Scotland account @InvernessPolice urge people not to fight, drink and drive or steal.

The words include: "He sees you when you're thieving, he knows when you're gonna breach."

Written in the 1930s, Santa Claus is Coming to Town features in Elf, a hugely popular Christmas movie.
