Teen Pulse staffers supplied childhood photos and penned letters to Santa...
I know that in order to be a good person, I’m supposed to ask you not for fulfillment of my materialistic desires, but for world peace or a cure for cancer or something. However, I know you’re not a miracle worker. You are a guy who gives toys to kids, not a genie. So I’m not going to ask the impossible of you. Rather, I ask that you give my gifts to someone more deserving than me. However, if when you’re done, you happen to have an extra Kindle or something else that will satisfy my love of books, I’ll take it. Thank you in advance.
I understand you are busy this time of year, so I’ll keep it short and simple. All I want for Christmas is for the Los Angeles Lakers to win a 17th NBA championship. Kobe Bryant needs to break Michael Jordan’s records, so if you do this, it will help more than one person. Thanks so much!
It’s been a while since I wrote to you — if I’ve written to you at all. It must feel bad
to see another kid growing up and no longer wanting the toys you put under the
tree. But rest assured I’m back, hopefully for more than just this Christmas.
Count your blessings, think of all the kids who deserve your jolly, good goodness.
With each year that passes, your taste in presents is starting to look more and more like my mother’s. I won’t lie, I’m getting a wee bit suspicious here. But, my friend, I’m giving you a chance to redeem yourself now. I am sharing these gift options in the hopes that you will read this beautiful letter on Dec. 25, when it shall be published, have Rudolph wiggle his nose, and travel back in time, replacing the likely repulsive gift you will have given me by the time you read this with something that I actually desire.
First of all, the stuffed monkey I’ve been sleeping with since first grade is nearing disposal time. Please give him a makeover. I’d prefer if you don’t do it yourself. Tim Gunn is a good choice for that.
Secondly, you stalk — um, observe everybody, right? Could I maybe, possibly have one tiny lock of Gerard Butler’s hair and all the ingredients for Harry Potter love potion? I’ve been quite the good kid this year.
See, Santa? I’m not asking for much.
Farewell for now,
P.S. Please ignore my syntax. It’s winter break!
Dear Santa Claus,
This Christmas I would like:
• A genuine Red Ryder 200 shot carbine action air rifle
• A new pair of gloves
• A book
• A new pair of snow boots
• A headlamp
Have a very Merry Christmas and say hi to your elves for me.
Letter to Santa
This year, I want a few things under my tree. I would love some new yarn to knit cozy scarves and hats, and maybe a few new needles as well. I would love to have some books to read on stormy winter nights. Some new earrings would make my day, but most of all, I want my family to be happy and loved, whether it be the Christmas season or the middle of the year.
Lots of love and Merry Christmas,
I have been a good boy this year, so I was wondering if you could bring me a Lego Star Wars Death Star space station. Also, could you bring a squeaky toy for my dog Leo? That is all I want, thank you. Say hello to your reindeer and I will leave them some carrots and some cookies and eggnog for you. Merry Christmas!
Your friend Ben
Dear Santa Claus,
This Christmas, I would like a Nikon D3100. I’m not sure your elves are capable of that, but I suppose I’ll find out. As my sister mentioned, I’d also love some yarn for making cozy hats and things. One last thing I’d like is for you to give a little extra holiday cheer for those who are less fortunate than I am. Help them to see the true message of Christmas. That is where true joy and hope comes from.
This year I would like three things:
That pretty Steve Madden coat,
For people to embrace their dormant
and world peace
