Open Letter to Santa Claus
Have You Written Your Letter To Santa Yet?
Dear Santa Baby,
I understand this happy holiday is your busiest time of the year and I won't take up too much of your time. I'll make this letter short and sweet. At least I'll try to, I do have a tendency to ramble. This girl was wondering...is there an age limit for letters to Santa?
I hope not because I'm kind of older than a child, but I'm still a kid at heart. Does that count? I've also been nice. Most of the time.
Everyone is anticipating when Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. All the kids have been on their best behavior, hopefully.
They know you are making a list and checking it twice. It's a shame that parents could only use Santa as a threat just a few weeks a year. How about making this a year-long event?
On your Sleigh Ride around the world you will notice many areas where fun, festive celebrants have accomplished their task to Deck The Halls with boughs of holly!
You will most likely be singing fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la as you view the decorations. Your jovial journey will be glowing with lights to help guide your path.
Tis The Season
Most likely Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer will be leading the pack with his very shiny nose. He took a lot of slack and bullying due to his unique facial feature, but he held tough.
Rudolph showed the bullies that even though he might be different he can still be a success. Anyway, Santa while you are guiding your reindeer I ask you one favor...please be careful we don't want another Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer accident! Grandma's are super special and we need to have their back, not hit their backside!
If by chance while traveling the friendly skies you might happen to notice Mommy Kissing Santa Claus...don't panic! He's not an impostor or trying to steal your thunder! He's most likely daddy dressed as jolly St. Nick.
He understands you are overworked and underpaid and he's just lending a helping hand. Hopefully, that's what is going on, or Mommy is in trouble! Uh oh!
Do You Hear What I Hear?! It's the millions of people around the world hustling and bustling getting ready for your arrival! We are preparing our chimney's by removing the soot so you don't get your red suit dirty. We are planning on which cookies to prepare for you this year. Low-calorie and no high fructose corn syrup is a must!
Trust me while you are Up On The Housetop you will appreciate our thoughtfulness! We are also reminding the children that they better be good! We are wrapping gifts with pretty bows and adding your name to it. You have an amazing amount of helpers, including your adorable elves and most importantly Mrs. Santa.
I would like to thank you for your hard work and dedication in honor of your billions of fans. You are one of a kind...even though many people try to mimic you. No one can pull off a Ho! Ho! Ho! except the real Santa. I want to wish you good luck this Christmas Eve as you begin your trek in Australia and finish it off in America.
During this Silent Night there will be much Joy To The World. Many people will be listening for your Silver Bells. They will be wondering what surprises will greet them in the morning. So much cheer for all children worldwide. We gotta love it!
It's now time for you and Mrs. Santa to celebrate another successful holiday where you made many children (of all ages) very merry. I suggest the two of you now take some time to enjoy the holidays.
When you arrive safely back in the North Pole how about you two go Rocking Around The Christmas Tree? Eat, drink and be merry! Rest up for next year! By the way, I'll pass on a gift request...you obviously know why, since you know if I've been bad or good. Uh oh! Thanks for your taking the time to read my letter Santa, aren't you glad I didn't ramble!
P.S. Wishing all of Santa's "helpers" happy holidays! In all the rush of the season don't forget about you. Do something nice for you. Without you someone's Christmas might have less cheer. Show yourself how special you are. Enjoy making memorable memories no matter how you celebrate. Are you picking up on the trending "you?" ... Have yourself a Holly Jolly Christmas!
