I found this letter I wrote to Santa Claus a few years ago at my Mum’s house. I’m not sure but I think I must have been about 7 at the time. Clearly no one had taught me how to spell ‘Barbie’ yet. Or how to write in a straight line.
A few things, firstly, how is it that I knew how to spell ‘picnic’ (still so tempting to put a ‘k’ in there…) and not ‘Barbie’?! Secondly, wtf is a Puggle? Google tells me it’s a cross between a beagle and a pug but designer hybrid dogs didn’t exist in the mid nineties. And finally, “Ps I love you!”?! Go me for trying to emotionally blackmail Santa.
This does raise a few questions: where did I send the letter to? Clearly not the North Pole, because I never did get my Barbie dream house, picnic van (a van just for picnic-ing?! Amazing) or Puggles. Also, did I abbreviate ‘Christmas’ to ‘X-Mas’ in a nod to blasphemy? Or was I just lazy?
Do kids still write letters to Santa? Did you?
