Letter to Santa

Dear Santa,

Please forgive me, but I need to say a few words. I don't want it to come across wrong as I know you're a hard working individual with a lot on his plate. But, if you could do one thing this year than it would be to hold back Christmas. I don't know why but it doesn't feel right. I don't know if I'm the only one, but I'm not ready for you to deliver goods or spread toys across the land. I'm not even sure that I can handle the thought of it. Maybe I'll sleep on the idea and see how I feel in a few days. But right now I wonder if I can pull myself together enough to recognize these next days are supposed to feel like magic. When a deep rooted sadness permeates my gut and heart. A deep throbbing sadness.

Love,

Katie

Christmas isn't really supposed to be about gifts at all... The older I get, the more I long for my blissful ignorance at Christmas.
You should write this letter to Jesus instead. He may be able to help you with your deep throbbing sadness. I don't mean to be that "creepy religious random girl" but this struck a cord in my heart.
