Dear Santa

A Glass of Milk


Dear Santa,

This Christmas, I wish for world peace.

 This Christmas, I wish for all poverty and disease to be eradicated, and global warming to end.

This Christmas, I wish for my family and friends to be happy, healthy and prosperous.

 This Christmas, I wish for the power to always do the right thing.

 Santa, can I also ask that this Christmas Eve that my children go to sleep early, and for my husband to fix the bloody squeaky floorboard that threatens to wake them when I creep into their rooms to put out their stockings?

Yours sincerely,

A. Mother.
