Dear Santa: thanks anyway


Jaden Boschee

Dear Santa,

This year has been a very bumpy ride. I started high school, had a COVID scare, my best friend moved away, and my grandma just passed away yesterday (at the time of writing this.) I don’t want to write anything too sad, but honestly, I hope for Christmas I get happier and have the ability to spend lots of time with family and friends. It’s really sad and disappointing how people that were supposed to spend Christmas with me are slowly decreasing and I know I can’t ask you to bring them back because even though it happens in movies, it’s not real. After all, you’re just an old white man who has way too much money to spend so you buy kids gifts, but thanks anyway.
