Tis The Season

-A A +A

As a way to get into the holiday spirit, Teen Pulse staff members wrote letters to Santa Claus. They wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Dear Santa,
It’s me again, and I’ve got a few wishes for Christmas this year.
At first I wanted a pony, but I figured that wouldn’t fit very well into your bag of toys, so I settled on something more reasonable.
I instead wish for that pair of camel-colored boots I found in Dillard’s a few weeks ago, a sparkly headband, and a voluminous polka-dot scarf — preferably in red, yellow, pink, white, or all of the above.
I hope that’s not too much to ask for. Try looking at discount stores to get the best deals.
Merry Christmas!
Alexandra Helen


Dear Santa, 
I know I haven’t been the best boy, but I hope you will give me something other than coal this year. Anyway here goes. I’d like:
• An Erector set
• Lincoln logs
• An iPhone 5
• A pogo stick
• Your autograph
I hope you have a good trip. If you have to get me coal, at least I’m helping keep the industry alive.                                                                        

Merry Christmas!

Dear Santa,
Hey bro how’s it goin? Creepin’ on kids every year, coming into their houses, eating their food and leaving boxes under trees must be pretty exciting! Anyway, I understand that our relationship has become estranged over the years, but I’m looking forward to reconnecting with you so I can get presents! I don’t want much. But if you could bring me British actress/model Keira Knightley, I would be very thankful. I understand that many children ask for unrealistic things, but I think this one can be done with a little Santa magic. If for some reason the Keira plan doesn’t work out, you can bring me Spanish actress Penelope Cruz. Either would be fine with me. Thanks a bunch!

Your friend, Sebastian Garcia

Dear Santa,
I was going to ask you for a really nice coat that is super expensive and some new oil pastels, because I sort of destroyed the ones I own the other night, but I decided against asking for those things.
I am going to ask you instead to help those in need. All I want for Christmas is for the people that don’t have a roof over their head or have fallen on hard times, to find food and shelter so they can stay warm and fed during this Christmas holiday.
Also, please help the families in Connecticut with the tragic loss of their children, because they will not be able to spend Christmas with their beloved child.

Sincerely, Elizabeth Hjelvik

Dear Santa,

I’m pleased to inform you that after many years of just getting random (but likable) gifts, I have finally created a legitimate Christmas list. Of course, as the best and only man who does what you do, I am going to you with my list. However, I will admit the items are not cheap, but nevertheless, I have faith.
I’ve been waiting for this for quite a while, I want to get the Dark Knight Trilogy on Blu-Ray. Jumping from that to the next item I really want a blazer. Yes I have winter clothes, but it’s that time of year, I feel my request is reasonable. Plus things go on sale during the Christmas season, I don’t see any huge gravity in this.
But I digress. I also admit this is probably the shortest Christmas list ever, but given the price tags on these items, it’s understandably a hull. In the end I will say, I believe I have been good, and I’m thankful for those who are good in the world.

Happy hunting, Andrew Li

Dear Santa,
I know that you know I’ve been a really, really good boy this year (if you don’t count the times I wasn’t a good boy). I’m not quite sure what I want, so maybe surprise me with something big like a huge trampoline or maybe you could install a pool. Yeah, a pool would be nice. Merry Christmas! 

Love,  Ben Hanlon

P.S. I found a bag of baby teeth in my mom’s dresser and I was wondering if you could leave a note for the Tooth Fairy, to come and pick them up. Thanks.

Dear Santa, its been a while since I wrote you last. Last time I did this I was a little boy probably asking for Lego.
Now I’m 16 years old and I find myself buying all those things I want, but as you know big boys like big toys and that’s why I’m asking you to help me buy a B16A 1St Gen DOHC VTEC Engine for my Honda CRX.
It’s a pretty pricey thing I’m asking you to help me pay for, but it would make me oh so very happy. I understand that carrying such a heavy object on your sleigh will be quite an ordeal, but seeing as you deliver presents to all the children of the world in one night its probably no biggie.
I know you have many more important things to worry about than me and that’s how it should be. So this Christmas I’m not really asking you to help me pay for a new souped up engine I’m just throwing it out there in case you happen to be in the mood. Anyway I hope you’re having a great year in the North Pole and I hope the global warming isn’t too bad up there,

Best wishes, Owen Bradbury-Aranda

Dear Santa,
 How are you? Have the reindeer forgiven you for the mad cow vaccine shots? Oh and tell Elffred to get a haircut.
All right, enough with the chit-chat, lets get down to business.  This year I would like a Fluxx card game and world peace. Do you think the sleigh can haul an airplane? Never mind, I am sure the  reindeer have a lot of horsepower! Get it?  It was a joke. HO! HO! HO! That was an other joke ... moving on ...
Now, where were we? Oh, right! I would like night vision goggles, Air Trekker stilts, a long board and please give all the homeless kids in America a good home and a clean bed to sleep in. Bless all the broken-hearted families in Connecticut and heal the nation from this tragedy.
And give all the victims of Hurricane Sandy good hope. Have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
