A Peek into Santa’s In-Box

by M.C. Antil on December 13, 2010

Around this time every year, I play Santa Claus in phone calls to kids around the country (and, frankly, have been doing so for almost 30 years).  It started out as a friends and family thing, but then about ten years ago, I decided to turn my Santa calls into a business. 

I called it Santa 1-on-1.

Throughout the years, Santa 1-on-1 has received, literally, thousands of emails from kids of all ages to Santa, sometimes just to reconnect, other times to confirm their status on the naughty/nice list, and at times just because, well… just because they’ve got something important to tell him. 

Below is just a small sample (in raw, unedited form) of some of the recent emails I have received on behalf of Santa and his elves through Santa 1-on-1.

Enjoy!

Hi CAN I ASK YOU A.Q. SURE I AM ON THE NICE LIST BECAUSE I THINK THAT I AM NOT THAN I CAN START BEING

I am 13 years old.  Santa is not real.  “Santa” is your parents.  Some children believe in him, but that is because he is little.  One day no body is ever going to believe in Santa again and no one will even know that he existed at one point.  I just thought you would like to know my true feelings about “Santa.”

I just wanted to say I am sorry for being a bad kid and for being on your bad list.  All I want for Christmas is for you to make it snow.

I know I have been having an attitude with alot of people but I am trying to change my attitude.  I want you too leave me presents.  I don’t want no coal for being naughty. I want presents.  I will work on being good.  I’m trying my best!
