Dear Santa

I can’t believe I just did this, but I did. And it’s fantastic.

I received a request from Michelle to write a letter to Santa, from the perspective of myself as a child. So that’s what I did.

I wrote the letter by hand because that’s how kids write to Santa, especially kids from the 90s. I decided not to write like a child because it would be too hard to read and what if my handwriting never went back to normal?

Also, I decided to give myself a full vocabulary at the age of 7. Deal with it. I’m gifted. That being said, I kept referring to Santa as Santana, just because.

The full transcript is below the photo, followed by some final words and a challenge for all of you.


Dear Santana,

My name is PauL. I am 7 years old. I am from Canada. I am short but my Doctor says I’m growing. I live in a house next to other houses. 

I just realized I did not indent the first paragraph. My teacher is going to be mad. Give her coal. 

For Christmas I want more Thomas the Tank Engine toys. Just like last year. I also want Lego. I want the Lego that comes in the big bucket from Toys R Us.

Lego my Eggo Santana.

And then I want board games like Sorry! and Monopoly and Trouble and Mouse Trap and Jenga. Make sure these gifts are clearly labelled for me so if my sister runs off with the board I can say it’s mine and she has to give it back.

I want hockey cards. I want Pogs. I want the Fisher Price BBQ set from Toys R Us. Did you know the BBQ makes a sizzle when you press the button?

I want mini sticks with a net and a ball. I do not want hockey skates because I just got a new pair and my feet won’t grow again until May my Mommy said.

I also want mint chocolate in my stocking. Don’t tell my parents. Thank you Santana.


P.S. I have been a good boy this year. 

Honestly, that was a lot of fun to do and if you’re reading this, I want you to do it too! Write a letter to Santa. Post it on your blog. Feel like a kid again, who has nothing to worry about except their siblings stealing their toys from them.

Don’t let me down. Don’t let Santana down, either. He sees you when you’re sleeping, you know.

    Love This, this cheered me up on a miserable morning!
    Santa used to forget wrap some of our presents and my sister would try to steal mine too, if she liked it enough Mum would say – ‘I think Santa meant that for you all to share’ What? no – it was clearly on my side of the sofa!!

    I remember getting annoyed when I was a kid. Because Sorry! and Trouble are basically the same game.

    I love the fact that you actually wrote this out by hand and I’m surprised that you had the same witty and sarcastic humor even then. 😉 This certainly made me laugh and I may actually write one myself!

    This is absolutely wonderful. The “Lego my Eggo” and “Give her coal” parts were nice touches

    This is too cute. And I think you’ve inspired me to write my own Santa note.

    Love it! I may take you up on this and do my own letter to Santa but if I do, as a rebel, I shall do it after Christmas which will probably drive poor old Santa up the wall (and then up through the fireplace, up to the roof and there to wonder if radiators count. Er…)

    This is great. May Santa grant you your wishes. Hey! How come pizza isn’t on your list?
