Letter to Santa – The Finished Product

So today I wrote my letter to Santa Clause and will be sending it out in the mail tomorrow.  I chose a very lovely stationary with snowflakes and Christmas trees.  It ended up taking 3.5 pages but not because I’m greedy.  My handwriting is atrocious and very big, so it takes up a lot of room on unlined paper.  Below is a picture of the finished letter and a translation underneath so you can see what I wrote.

My very pretty letter to Santa

Dear Santa Claus,

I know that it’s been a while since I wrote you a letter, probably almost twenty years, but it’s never too late to catch up, right?
How are the reindeer? Are the elves surviving these hard, economic times?  I hope so, they always seemed like such a jolly lot.
Anyway, I don’t want to take up too much of your time, so here is the list of things I was kind of hoping to get for Christmas.

  1. A new boxspring for my bed. It was damaged in a freak accident and now my side of the bed dips. This makes for a most uncomfortable sleep at night.
  2. A pug named GIR so the Peep can have a friend and stop torturing the boyfriend on a daily basis.
  3. Fuzzy dice to hang from the rearview mirror in my car. Because Bob the Car is just that classy.
  4. A belted sweater for the boyfriend because I can’t find them anywhere. His favourite colour is orange.
  5. Another Snuggie. I know that I already have one, and I love the way it’s warmth and coziness invades me while it steals my soul, but I can get cold at work and would like to have one there as well.
  6. I’d really like someone to make a She-Ra movie. There are no good cartoons left in the world and that was one of the best and greatest roll models for girls and she was the best. Boys got a He-Man movie and I’m still waiting for my She-Ra film. I’m sure you have connections in Hollywood and can make this happen.
  7. By the way, since he doesn’t have opposable thumbs, Mr. Peep would like cat food that is easily opened so he doesn’t have to wait until the boyfriend and I get up to eat his tasty breakfast. Because, trust me, Mr. Peep is not impressed with his humans sleeping in.
  8. I know that this is a very nerd-like request, but please bring back Buffy and Firefly. Please????
  9. A new duvet would be lovely because the boyfriend stole mine two years ago and I haven’t been able to snuggle into it’s pillowy goodness ever since. I miss my duvet, Santa, a lot and I’d be very appreciative to have another one. We don’t share blankets very well, so no, that is not an option.
  10. Lastly, Santa, I would like a winter coat. I used to have several and somehow, they have all disappeared. It may be the boyfriend’s way of getting me to buy a new coat as the old ones were ten years old. I live in Southwestern Ontario. It’s freaking cold here and the moderately rated one I have isn’t really cutting it.

So, in closing, I would like to thank you for your time and tell you that its been wonderful writing you a letter again after so long. I hope your trip is good this year and Merry Christmas to you.

Thanks again,

Shannon.

Letter to Santa – A Prelude

This year, I was discussing with a friend about how much fun it used to be to write letters to Santa every year and get one back in the mail.  Then, at the very same time, we both stated out loud the address to which you sent them at the same time and laughed and I had a brilliant (if not somewhat childish) idea.  I’m going to write a letter to Santa Claus this year.  I may be 27 years old, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to partake in the fun and joy it always brought me as a kid to sit there and write that letter and then, like magic, get one back in the mail, written specifically to me, from the big man himself.

And so, I went to the craft store on my lunch break yesterday and got my hands on some very pretty stationary and I’m going to do it.  This weekend, I shall sit down and hand write a letter to Santa and mail it off on Monday.  Then, as I did when I was but a wee tot, I shall wait every day in eager anticipation for my return letter.   I will, of course, be sharing the entire journey with you all, from what my letter said to what I got in return, so you can eagerly await it as well.

If you are feeling a hankering for some good old fashioned child-like fun this Christmas, don’t hesitate.  In case you had forgotten, the address is as follows:

Santa Claus
North Pole
H0H 0H0
Canada

So go ahead and write a letter, ask about how the reindeer are doing and if the recession effected the number of elves he had in employment, I certainly intend to.  Maybe I’ll even leave some milk and cookies out this year.  Why should kids get all the fun and magic and leave the adults with the stress of shopping and decorating?  I say, “No More!” and I’m taking back my magical Christmas.  I fully encourage you all to do the same.
