Our local paper featured a section where Santa shared some of the letters he had received from children this year.

Reading them made me feel old, or at least out of touch with children, as I had no idea what many of the wishes entailed. Imaginext toys, bubble bracelets, damage cards, a level 40 indomiums Rex, a bumble bee transformer, a Palace Pet and Pony Prize set, a bunch of Beanie Boos and a Tsuma hedgehog all made the list. Quite different from the lists I would have mentioned at their age!

But my favorite wish is from Shaelyn, age 7 who asked Santa for: “A puppy so I can hug it. I have one now but it is too big and it bites.”

May you wake up tomorrow morning with all that you wish for under the tree.
