If You’re Going To Write A Letter To Santa, This Is The Way To Do It

lol | 12/18/18

Writing a letter to Santa is serious business. I hear he only gives present to children with excellent penmanship. Also, you have to say please and thank you in the letter or else he doesn’t even read it. The elf who sorts his mail for him is very particular.

Keep reading to see some of the greatest and funniest letters written to the one and only Santa Claus. You know, the guy with the beard who lives in the North Pole.

Ouch, Right In The Childhood

I mean, he kind of wakes up. He talks to Simba from the sky. You can’t play with my emotions like this, kid.

I just got over Bambi’s mom. This one is too much for me. Also, Simba’s dad has a name. It’s Mufasa. Don’t forget him.

Smart Kid

This little girl knows how to think ahead. Is there anything worse than getting excited to play with some brand new toy on Christmas morning, only to discover that you don’t have any batteries to go with it?

This is why you have to think about all the details.

I Think This Girl Wants A Cat

Well, at least she did her research. And I bet she learned something.I’m pretty impressed by how she was able to copy down the Chinese characters.

Do we think she’s going to get a cat this year? I think she’s proven that she deserves one.

Be Specific

I admire this kid’s specificity. He didn’t want Santa getting him the wrong version of whatever toy or gadget this links too. Also, it must have taken ages to copy down that whole link.

Hasn’t he heard of copy and paste? Does he expect Santa to type this whole thing into his search bar?

A Kid After My Own Heart

Now this kid knows how to make a Christmas list. Although, I’m not sure about that “not chocolate” caveat.

Chocolate is delicious and it’s a Christmas staple. What’s a Christmas stocking without at least a few chocolate coins? I don’t know kid, I think you need to get some new taste buds.

I’m Very Afraid

Um, that pony looks pretty angry. I’m a little bit nervous about these promised consequences. I am also impressed that this kid knows how to spell consequences. Well, she almost knows how to spell it, and that’s good enough for me.

You get a pony, you get a pony, everybody gets a pony.

Why Not 30?

I mean, if you’re going to ask for 29 dollars, why not take a chance and bump it up to 30? You think Santa has change in his coat pocket? He’s not walking around with dollar bills. He’s a busy man— tens and twenties or nothing.

In other news, this kid really likes gold.

She Took his Assignment Very Literally

When this kid’s teacher told him to write a letter to Santa, he wasn’t quite sure what that meant. He decided to give Santa the alphabet, because those were the kinds of letters he knew how to write.

This level of innocence could melt even the Grinch’s frozen heart.

This One Is Going To Be A Lawyer

The proof is in the pudding— the Christmas pudding, that is. This girl needed some hard evidence to solidify her belief in the one and only Mr. Claus.

Well, Santa definitely delivered. I don’t know about Adam, but this signature is all the proof I need.

Santa Is Not Your Maid

Santa is a lot of things. He sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake. He knows if you’ve been bad or good, but he won’t clean your room, for goodness sake.

At least Kim offered him some cookies and let him play her games.

I Don’t Think That’ Going To Happen

I like that Christmas is crossed out. That means that Shawn didn’t get Leonardo DiCaprio for Christmas, so she’s going to try her luck with summer vacation. I didn’t know summer vacation was a gift-giving occasion.

I don’t think Leo would appreciate being captured by Santa Claus.

She Said Please

You know, this kid asked for some high heels for her mom, so she’s already the coolest kid I know. Asking for a photo is just the icing on the cake.

I love that she left a phone out for Santa and made this request super convenient for him.

Do You Think She Wants A Pet?

I’m not sure what the difference is between a fuzzy kitten and a kitten. I think all kittens are pretty fuzzy. I’ve never seen a kitten that wasn’t fuzzy. Except maybe those hairless cats.

I guess she’s saying that she would be happy with any cat or dog, whether or not it’s hairless.

Take It Easy On Yourself

This kid’s penmanship is really impressive. Also, he seems to be quite thoughtful. He doesn’t want Santa to overextend himself.

It’s okay Santa, you don’t have to spend your time and energy making this kid a toy. He’ll just take a handful of cash.

We All Love Cookies

This is actually pretty poetic. I think I want this engraved into a block of wood or something.

I want to give so many cookies to my stomach (or my stumic). Chocolate chip, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, you name it. I’m sure Isaiah will get to eat some cookies on Christmas.

Flattery Will Get You Everywhere

This girl didn’t even ask for a present in this letter. She’s playing the long game. She’s going to send Santa a few letters filled with compliments before she tells him what she really wants.

I think it’s a good strategy. It’s been proven to work.

Thanks For Being Delicate, Sully

Sully is just looking out for Santa’s health. He has to hit up a lot of houses on Christmas Eve. If there are, let’s say, two cookies at every house, and he’s going to a couple million houses, that’s a whole lot of cookies.

A third cookie would just push him over the edge.

She Wants Rudolph

When I was a kid, I would never have even thought to ask for Rudolph. If someone had told me that was an option, of course, I would want to see Rudolph on my doorstep.

Lilli is thinking big. This is what being a kid is all about.

I Think Your Childhood Is Just Fine

If you’re asking Santa for Legos and two different kinds of onesies, your childhood is probably doing just fine.

Talk to me when you’re asking Santa for a quiet blender and an elliptical machine. That’s when you’re really going to need your childhood back.

Me Too, Sarah, Me Too

I think Sarah might actually need her childhood back. Calm down girlie, you’re young and it’s Christmas. You don’t need a boyfriend to have a good time.

I hear Taylor Swift puts on a great show, though. And if you get some clothes from Nordstrom you could wear them to the concert…
