Dear Santa, For Christmas I want to help my mom out. She is really struggling. me and my brother are kind of driving her crazy. Please tell Scrat and Acorn to be good this year. I want to get my mom something really nice, but all the stores are closed. So I don’t know what to do and I’m really sad cause my mom deserves everything she wants. She is just the best mom in the world and I never could have asked for a better mom. My mom has been diabetic since she was 10 and I am so inspired by her. When I grow up I want to be just like her. So please consider my letter. It would really make me happy and hopefully my mom too. Love:

Dear Santa, All I want for Christmas is a pet piglet. I know what you are thinking, a pet piglet? I know it’s a little weird but this is all I want. I think pigs are very adorable but can be kinda messy. If I get a piglet it will live in my bedroom and definitely not become food on my watch. I will name it Gerald after my stuffed animal raccoon. That’s what I want. Christmas is more than just presents though. It’s about spending time with family and friends. It’s about being thankful for what you have. Remember helping people and giving back to your community could make a big difference. Even just giving someone a compliment could make their day. Always remember the little things could matter the most. Thank you Santa for making people’s day special.

Dear Santa, Can I have a PC for Christmas because it’s something to do. Also with Christmas please don’t snow. It’s white and weird. It’s fun but cool. I want cards. Not just any cards. Sports cards. They’re really fun to play with. Also I would want clothes. That’s just what everybody gets. Also I want for Christmas is to PENN STATE to win a game. Probably football clothing to be what clothing I want. Like Eagles, Browns and Chiefs supplies.

Dear Santa, For Christmas I would like for everyone in the global world to be happy and healthy this Christmas. With this global pandemic it’s hard for some states to see their family so I would like this global pandemic to leave the hole US and UK. I personally think that everybody should be together for Christmas well I think all holidays should be with family but Christmas is a big one that families should be together. So for Christmas I don’t really want anything from Santa. I would just like Christmas to be happy and healthy and those we have lost this year and everyone who got really sick and stuff. I think with all the Christmas cheer we can make this Christmas one of the best ones yet and end the year on a good note.

Dear Santa, Since I live in Pennsylvania I wanted to know how it feels in the North Pole. I am assuming it is cold looking at the pictures but you never know. I am asking for a dog, shoes, socks, and more. I almost can’t fall asleep every year. Once everyone does fall asleep, I know everyone can count on you to get them their present. I wake up much earlier than my parents. I wait for a while but once my parents wake up we open our stockings. After that we go downstairs and open presents and eat. Later we will go to my pap’s house. Thank you Santa.
