Blogmas 2020: My Santa Letter


When I saw this prompt for Blogmas, I thought “this is kid’s stuff. Why would I write a letter to Santa?”

But then, the more I thought about it, the more I realized it could be kind of fun to write Santa. I haven’t written a letter to “Santa” in quite a while. So, in the spirit of Christmas; why not?

Dear Santa,

Well, you already know that this has been a crazy year for me. I don’t have to really explain to you whether I’ve been naughty or nice. I’m pretty sure you know, Lol. Even if I haven’t been the nicest, I would hope that you would still bring me just a little Christmas cheer this year because it has been pretty tough. This year has not been my favorite, and I really didn’t want to celebrate Christmas. I wanted to sleep the entire holiday away and not care one way or the other whether or not I got any gifts or if I gave anything. But I’m slowly starting to find the joy in each day.

I guess I will say this: Santa, If you can and if you will, bring me peace and happiness this year. I feel like I have lost a big chunk of myself this year. I lost a big part that makes me happy. I lost my reason to smile and I lost a piece of my security and comfort. So, if I could have one thing this year, it would be to become more peaceful and happier with just myself. If you could do that for me, I think I’d be alright.
