Open Letter to Santa Claus

Updated on December 24, 2016

Linda (Kaywood) Bilyeu is a published author; books are available on Amazon. She writes from the heart, there is no other way.

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!

The Chipmunk Christmas Song

Santa enjoys reading your letters. His elves told me so.

Way to go Santa!

      Leave it to you, Sunshine to get me into the Holiday spirit....which I was attempting to put "on hold" because I have such a hectic schedule. I didn't want to have to think about Christmas until about Dec. 23rd....Now, thanks to you, I've put everything ELSE on hold and I'm playing Christmas music, decorating the house and making a list and checking it twice. Thanks for rescuing me from being an OLD SCROOGE!! Happy Holidays to you and yours!

      Ha ha - this is too cute. Saint Nick comes tonight - well not for everybody - I guess it is mostly a German thing and since I am from Wisconsin we always did it. So my kids are getting a visit from old Saint Nick tonight. I think I am going to have them write letters to Santa so he can get their holiday lists. Of course, I already know what they are getting so we will see if that makes a difference! :)

      Such a cute hub and hope everybody is enjoying their holidays!

      Very nicely done....an awesome letter to Santa and some awesome videos that you have included. My 5 year old watched the Norad video and kept asking if it was Christmas yet....gotta love the excitement of a 5 year old weeks before Christmas. I sometimes think that the wait for Christmas is more fun than the actually event. Keep up the good work on your "Letters to" series. Voted up and awesome....the power of dreaming and hubbing.

      That was the best ever gift to put everyone in the mood. I loved that song---I think I will run outside and start singing it---and see how much attention I can get--maybe a red star on my head and Sweetie Angel with a Rudolph Nose. You think I might cause some ranchers and farmers to slow down on the hwy. Ha! LOL!

      Sunshine,

      Perhaps you could settle a debate my friends and I are having. My think Rudolph should be banned from t.v. because it is a primative example of "bullying." I think the fact that Rudolph proves his value, makes all the other reindeer "eat his dust" as he leads the sleigh and gets the cutest girl in the end, proves that just because you are bullied you shouldn't quit. What are your thoughts?

    • Sunshine625 profile image
      Author

      Linda Bilyeu 5 years ago from Orlando, FL

      I agree with you Tammy 100%! Yes he was bullied but he proved the bullies were wrong by being the head honcho and guiding the reindeer for Santa PLUS he got the girl. Sort of reminds me of a Sandra Bullock movie, she always gets the guy and always find her way out of the corner! Wow I bet Sandra never would have thought I would compare her to Rudolph! LOL Great question!

      Sunshine,

      I need more Christmas advice from you since you adeptly assisted me with me with my other Christmas deliema. I have a certainly family member who is.. well, a little smelly. Is there a "nice" way to let them know this? Is it inappropriate for me to buy them a bottle of Lysol and a hard brisled scrub brush for Christmas? Thank you for your Christmas expertise in advance.

      I'll be happy to assist you with your relatives issue ... suggest to them to shop my Avon store at www.youravon.com/lindabilyeu and also suggest they use the products sparingly since certain scents might be offensive to people around them. I hope this helps you and your kin. By the way might I add a ewwwww.

      Hmmmm Tammy, I'm going to say no to that BUT word from the North Pole is that even Santa likes the body washes and body mist sprays. We do have a footcare line that might help with odors from the between the toes. Might I add again another ewwwww.

      Sunshine, This year I am asking Santa that my relatives don't over stay their welcome this year, they don't leave wet towels on the floor, and they don't stink up the bathroom. Do you think that is wrong? Will he still bring me a present?

      Linda Bilyeu 5 years ago from Orlando, FL

      Absolutely you will still get a gift! I think Santa would agree with you on relatives who overstay their welcome and for them to pick up after themselves. BTW, he said they just might get coal in their stockings due to their their rude manners.

      Awesome.. I feel better now. Just one more question. I suffer from depression over the holidays due to all the memories that keep flooding me. I have been to therapy and they just couldn't help me. You see, I saw Daddy kissing Santa.. I don't know how to erase these images from my mind. Any suggestions?

      If daddy ain't happy then ain't nobody happy so if daddy's happy just be happy for him. Heck it could have been worse...it could have been a reindeer! Oh and spike the eggnog as often as needed!

      I wrote to Santa last year and he actually responded to me. I was thrilled. I asked him why he and Ms. Clause didn't have any children. He wrote back and said it is because he only comes once a year.. and that is down a chimney. I am still trying to figure that one out, but at least he wrote back. I am taking notes from your hub so I can write a better letter this year.

      One more question... my kids built a fabulous Snow Man in the front yard.. they added the nose, a top hat, a scarf, little rock buttons, and sweet little flannel pajamas. But they said that this Snow Man could talk. I raced out side because I figured like most kids they were pulling my leg. Sure enough, as soon as I got into the yard, the Snow Man was taking off the flannel pajamas. I asked him if he was hot but he said no. He said he was trying to drop his pants because the snow blower was coming. Do you think this is an enchanted snow man?

      I enjoyed reading your smart, cute and funny letter to Santa Claus. Being an Archies comics fan, your nice letter reminded me of its particular holiday series which often showed Santa's helpers - merry little elves and his wife, Mrs. Santa. An entertaining hub! Well-done!

      Thanks for SHARING. Funny & Awesome. Voted up and shared on Facebook.

      Ho-ho-ho, I ROFL for that 'Dear Santa Baby' start of yours, Sunshine!

      You're too cute, Baby!

      Down here Santa Claus is compelled to appoint helpers. His helpers meet him at a central point to receive their uniforms and the bags with sweets and presents.

      I am one of his appointed helpers, already (now in October) busy to generate energy to do my job to the best of my ability. Sometimes I have to do the neighbors as well, but I don't mind. I'll do ANYTHING for Santa Claus aka Father Christmas as long as I get a hug from each and everyone receiving a prezzy from him.

      Ho-ho-ho.....

      (ROFL!)

      I really liked this hub. I still enjoy listening to Christmas carols and drinking eggnog by the fireplace. Grandma got run over by a reindeer is a classic. Joy to the World as well as Rudolph is another favorite as well as And a Partridge in a Pear Tree. Thanks for the memories. All I want for Christmas is you. I don't know, I'm wondering if I should write a letter to Santa this year. I haven't been too naughty this year. Voted up!

      Remember how you challenged me to write a hub on tackling my tasks. Well, I wrote it this morning and for some reason, I deleted a capsule by mistake and the article disappeared. I didn't save it today like I usually do, but I was annoyed!

      Hey Sunshine! I need more of you here...yes, you! Sunshine! It's only November and we already have some white stuff on the ground here up north.

      So, I thought this letter to Santa is a little bit early but since we already have some snow today, guess it sets the mood. Besides, we have to give some time allowance for Santa to get what we wished for.

      What a fun hub! Totally enjoyed it. Up and awesome!

      Cheers!

      I always get depressed around this time of year because we live so far away from our kids, but this year is worse because there is one less family member (my mother) to share the holidays with and my husband is very sick. However, your story cheered me up quite a bit. Heck, I might even go out and take some pictures of the new-fallen snow and write a new hub! Thanks a bunch.

      I found this post very interesting and the ltlite essay charming. I always admire anyone who tries to conquer a second language. I know that your post isn't about that but really about these dreadful times when money isn't stretching not nearly as far enough as it should. We all have people from the far flung corners of the earth in our countries which in education alone is heaving at the seams and I always think it is right to encourage this. It is a sad argument but it is important for every country in the land to be familiar with every other country. Their people, customs, religions, hopes and dreams but for a few ot the reasons. We need to do this to achieve a really peaceful world because above everything else we need to build up tolerance. It is so easy and say no to foreigners having and enjoying our education system, health system and so on and so forth. This is perhaps a luxury thought that none of us can afford to have for we must make our planet peaceful and safe and work in harmony to make every life fulfiled, happy and content. It also helps us to conquer the major problems of the world: disease, poverty and global warming. Only then can our children and our children's children be assured of a good and healthy life.I think there should be another way though - perhaps there should be a world fund for education where all countries contribute and funds are made available to enhance all childrens needs. Countries get together to try to obtain peace perhaps it is now time to add education to peace.I hope you have a lovely Sunday ... we have had snow here and have been told the weather is going to remain terribly cold for the next two weeks or more. It seems so dreadfully early for Winter to be here ... it is quite a while until Christmas yet.

      I'm packing now for my trip to the North Pole. If you don't hear from me for a month......please contact the producers of "Without a Trace."
