The season of giving is just around the corner, and with the year we've had, what better way to welcome Christmas than to spread cheer. Throughout the world many families are changing old traditions and adapting to these strange times, but the language of children is universal. It's no secret that children can be unforgivingly direct and honest, but quite often they remind us about single-minded pursuit of dreams and above all the quality of empathy.
Make sure to bring your Christmas wish-lists addressed to Santa to put in our post box! We'll make sure Santa gets them in time for Christmas.
Please address your letters to:
We bring you these 10 letters from around the world to kick off the festive season. Comment below your personal favourites or even your own letters!
1. The humble letter from a 7-year-old in 1915
In 1915, seven year old Homer Mellen from London, Ontario, only wanted a "box of paints, a nine cent reader and a school bag to put them in", only asking for "candy or toys [if santa has any] to spare"
"I want ducks with no teeth.
PS: I'll take geese if it's a hard task - but remember, no teeth!"
Who can blame her?
3. Amazon is taking over
This child decided he should make it easier on Santa and provide a link to a $28 remote controlled car.
4. Not the letter that Father Christmas normally gets...
"Will you bring me the presents I wish for this year? Last year you disappointed me. If you disappoint me this year as well, I'll lock the door so you can't let any more Christmases in. From Martina"
5. The kid who asked Santa to find a Christmas cure
"Dear Santa, This Christmas I would like one specific thing this year. My dad has a really bad brain tumour & if you could, could you please find a cure for him to make him better & I will be the happiest boy in the world! :) Merry Christmas! Yours sincerely, Ronnie Harris!"
6. Scary Santa Claus
"Do you think Mrs Santa can come instead of you? I'm so scared of you. Sorry. From Jonas"
7. The Italian kid who asked to donate her gift to African children
"I know that you are listening, Santa. You can give the gifts that I asked you to those black children with big belly, but very skinny that I saw on TV. I have the toys of last year and I still like them. Don't forget! Bye!"
8. Starting out early
"When you're finished, could I perhaps become the new Santa? Your friend, Callum"
9. 8-Year-Old-Boy Asks Santa to rescue his sister from school bullies
Ryan's letter went viral and the twins were guest in a TV show named 'Good Morning America', where they met Big Time Rush Band.
10. When Kennedy answers to a letter from kids worried about Santa
"Dear Mr. Kennedy,
Please stop the Russians from bombing the North Pole because they will kill Santa Claus. I am 8 years old. I am in the third grade at Holy Cross School.
Yours truly, Michelle Rochon"
I was glad to get your letter about trying to stop the Russians from bombing the North Pole and risking the life of Santa Claus.
I share your concern about the atmospheric testing of the Soviet Union, not only for the North Pole but for countries throughout the world; not only for Santa Claus but for people throughout the world.
However, you must not worry about Santa Claus. I talked with him yesterday and he is fine. he will be making his rounds again this Christmas.
