Dear Santa, I was initiated to the cult of veganism on March 3rd of this year, and it was the greatest decision I’ve made in my entire life. I was reborn on that very day, baptized into a greener, healthier realm; I became a new and improved version of myself. All I ask for this holiday season is for e...

Dear Santa, This year I have a peculiar request. Every year everything spins so fast I don’t feel like I get time to enjoy just being. My request is for time to slow down. I want you to take the reins and slow time down for a little while. Everyone is always spinning inside their own world worried...

Dear Santa, Santa this holiday all I want is a break from the chaos. I want a break from the suffering. A break from mothers and fathers and sister and brothers crying with pure agony because of the loss this cruel world provides them with. I am tired of animals being used for their extravagant parts...

Dear Santa, It’s been a few months since I found out that I cannot smell — and that it wasn’t just because I wasn’t “concentrating hard enough” as I had so brilliantly believed before. For 15 years, I pushed my smell problems to the back of my mind, because I didn’t think it was important....

Dear Santa, This year all I want is for Christmas is to return to the good old days. Throw me back in time, back to the “dark ages” where all I had to worry about was the Bubonic plague and famine. I am aware this seems like a joke but it would be great to escape the claustrophobia of the information...

December 4, 2018 Dear Santa, It’s December now. The majority of my friends are stressing out about finals, all my family members are worrying about buying gifts, and it seems that the entirety of humanity is focused on spreading the holiday spirit. The oncoming holiday daze also means that Christmas...

Dear Santa: Sad boy hours

Filed under Dear Santa, Feature, Uncategorized

Dear Santa, As you may have noticed, my name has not appeared in your stack of letters for many years — but I am back with one final request. This year, when I am awoken by my grandparents’ dog on Christmas morning and enter their jubilant living room, I do not want to see a gift for me under...
