A Child's Letter to Santa

A Child’s Letter To Santa

Dear Santa, it is almost time,
For your very stressful day,
To harness up your reindeer,
And to head out on your way!

I hope you’ll get a little rest,
And try to stop and pause,
For some precious quality time,
With dear, sweet Mrs. Claus!

I know the elves are working,
To get all done up right,
Avoiding any disappointment.
As you embark tomorrow night.

I wonder, in amazement,
How that sleigh holds all those toys,
Bringing thrills of such delight,
To a world of girls and boys.

Does your tummy ever ache,
From eating all the treats?
Left for you by the tree,
Milk, cookies and lots of sweets.

Will Rudolph and the reindeer,
Tire as they prance along?
Do you keep their spirits soaring,
With a merry Christmas song?

May moonbeams light your way
As your sleigh glides through the night,
Over shifting desert sands,
And snowdrifts shining white!

As children try to sleep,
And turn restlessly to and fro,
Is it their imagination,
Or do they hear a faint,”Ho,ho!”

  1. I wish one of my childhood letters to Santa had been so good. All I ever did was list what I wanted. Maybe if I had done it like this I would have gotten the Legos I always wanted.

  2. Oh, I could not remember anymore what I asked of Santa then :) maybe, just a lot of time to play outside :) the days were always short then :(
