'Dear Santa' letter competition 2019

This year I decided to have a Dear Santa letter competition, just for a bit of pre Christmas fun. There were several entries and everyone got into the spirit of things. All entries went into a draw to win one of my published works. 

This year's winner was Jackson Douglas, but I have to give a special mention to Bobbie Ferrero, who wrote a very clever piece. Congratulations to both of you, and thank you for entering the competition. I enjoyed it so much I'm thinking on doing this again next year.

Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous 2020

Dear Santa

despite what Dad says I have been a good boy this year. You should listen to my mum she says 'my behaviour has been an improvement'. So since last Christmas I got that Lego dinosaur I was wondering since I was better this year... could I have two? I know I haven't been good enough for a real one and that a real dinosaur would be a bit difficult for you but I think if you can have penguins up there you could get. Dad's telling me he isn't writing any more if I am going to go 'off topic.' Another Lego Dinosaur would be great. And a toothbrush and a bike because I need to get out more. This would be great Thank you.

Dear santa,

As I DREAM OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS and FROSTY THE SNOWMAN, i know i will hear your sleigh bells ring as I WALK IN THE WINTER WONDERLAND. So LET IT SNOW!! Last year I saw MOMMA KISSING SANTA CLAUS behind the OH TANNENBAUM. Hopefully this y
ear when you're UP ON THE HOUSE TOP you won't wake momma up. Kinda make it a SILENT NIGHT. It's been a rough couple of months. Do you remember when you were 6 years old? Actually ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS ARE MY TWO FRONT TEETH and see you ROCKIN AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE. Well Santa HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS and don't stay out too late. I know Mrs. Clause will want you HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS. Good night Santa.... have yourself a HAPPY XMAS and JOY TO THE WORLD.....

Dear Santa,

I have been good TODAY, does that count. I will try and be good at least TWICE next year, just to make up for it. BUT you know Santa about being sneaky, so don't judge me harsh. Just let me have something fun for a little bit. The wee stocking is out, but I'd like to shout, give us some rain instead of the pain...... and if not then how about a Ring of Curses .... pretty sure our farmers can relate.

Dear Santa.

You must get a lot of letters.
It occurs to me that many of these letters, having been written by young children, must contain a lot of typos sprinkled amidst the bid for toys and other.

Do these typos make you flinch like The Grinch when he almost dropped the stolen sled off the top of Mount Crumpet?
-asking for a friend
P.S. I would like a new dictionary for Christmas.
Yours truly, Stilla Editing

 Dear Santa

I have been soooooooooo good this year I did not get in to much trouble, only once at Sunday school I said: shut-up and the Sunday School teacher said how bad it was to swear I felt so bad but I didn't mean it I promise, I was just struggling to close my little hand bag when I said it and she thought I was swearing at her. Any way I know your helpers will tell you the truth I would really like a new bike and a chemistry set for Christmas please Thank you Santa.

"Dear Santa Clause,

how have you been? Did you have a nice summer? How is your wife? I have been extra good this year, so I have a long list of presents that I want. Please note the size & colour of each item & send as many as possible. If it seems too complicated, make it easy on yourself: Just send money. How about 10's & 20's?"

Dear Santa,

I've been a good girl all year long, well, most of the year, well I've been pretty good sometimes. Anyway, I'd like a puppy to cuddle but preferably not to clean up after, take for a walk or feed. But I would like a book to read to him. He would love Natural Magic in his stocking. Too much? Forget the dog. 🤔
