Dear Santa

I decided to join Mama Kat's weekly writing assignments. If you would like to start you should check it out here. She gives you several topics to choose from and the one I choose this time around was the letter to Santa.

Dear Santa,

As I'm sure you know, the economy is bad and I'm assuming your workshop has been experiencing the financial struggles itself. Seeing as how you might be unable to deliver all the material goods that many people are asking for this year, I would like to ask for something different. This year, I ask of you to open people's eyes to the true meaning of Christmas. Please help them to feel the spirit of the season and remember why we all celebrate it in the first place. Help them to be aware of others around them who might be suffering more difficult times than themselves. Encourage them to give to those who are less fortunate, even if all they have to give is just a little spare change or a helping hand. Open their eyes to see how important family and friends are as they make their rounds of visits. Although people might not have as much to give materially this year, please help them to remember that there is more to life than just stuff and maybe people will remember what this season is all about.



  1. That's a lovely letter but Santa's a materialistic bastard.

  2. What an unselfish and beautiful request! Loved it.

  3. Aww Laura, this is a beautiful post!!!

    You gave me tearly eyes..... I remember when I watched the movie "elf" for the first time - they talk about the true Christmas spirit.

    You are sooo right!

  4. ...and I will say that it touched my ego. 'twas such a beautiful post. :)


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
