It’s that time again for kids to mail some important notes and Christmas wish lists to the jolly man at the North Pole. Some ask for things that would be very difficult for Santa to bring ― sea rays, anyone? ― and some swear that they’ve been good kids this year (or, like, 80% of the time).
We asked the HuffPost Parents community to send in their kids’ funny, quirky, and adorable letters to Santa. Check them out, and add a photo of yours to the comments below.
My 3-year-old dictated and I wrote, but when I signed her name she was upset, so I taped her signature on.
My 6-year-old asked Santa for a gravity machine. She explained that it is a giant force field and when you step in it, you can float all over. I may need to call NASA?
My absolute favorite note is from 2014, when my daughter was 7.
It opens with “I have been 80% good.” Santa really appreciated her honesty.
A list from my 9-year-old. To clarify, the wit is for people with bad ideas, and he wants others lives to be better. He said his is great!
She was 5. Good question.
My daughter wasn’t the best at letter spacing. I swore it said “Christ ass.”
My son’s letter (LOL) after telling them a price limit of $30 and under.
7-year-old left this next to the cookies and small glass of eggnog.
My 3-year-old wants diamonds and chicken!
My 4-year-old boy decided that walking Santa through the Target toy catalog was more efficient than writing a list.
It’s my handwriting, but written exactly as my almost-3-year-old dictated it to me. She doesn’t even like broccoli!
My six-year-old’s letter he wrote yesterday!
Easy requests from my 7-year-old son.
My 6-year-old daughter requested a Louis Vuitton.
From my granddaughter, 7-year-old Elise — the first page of her letter to Santa.
My 3-year-old dictating to Poppy! Haha
My son has very simple tastes
Our 8-year-old wanted to tell Santa some jokes that he wrote himself. He said, “They’re probably not that funny, but Santa will like them anyway.”
Not a letter “to” Santa. but one “from” him. My daughter, Alice, crushing the magic of Christmas for her first grade class… one student at a time.
If only you could see this second grader of mine whine and complain about doing homework on school nights. Yet, he’s already concerned about a two week break without it. And apparently secure in the knowledge that Santa will bring all the toys and gadgets he’s asked for without having formally written to ask for them. Because look out (me) if he only gets homework!!!
