Dear Santa;

By Andrew Mitchell

Dear Santa;

How are you? I am fine. My name is Mathilda Brown, I'm eight years old and I've been a very good girl this year. I have helped my parents, fed the dog and been kind to others, and I always, always listened to my teacher. This year I would please like the following:

  • EZ Bake Oven and Refill Kit.
  • iPod Touch 5 and App Store gift card for $50.
  • Complete Lemony Snicket: A Series of Unfortunate Events series (hardcover please).
  • New skates.
  • Harry Potter Lego (Hogwarts castle set).
  • DVDs: Brave, How to Tame Your Dragon and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.

Thanks! I hope the weather is nice at the North Pole.

Sincerely yours,

Mathilda Brown

Dear Mathilda;

Thank you for your letter. My elves and I will do our best to make you some of the items on your wish list in our workshop. Keep up the good deeds and Merry Christmas to you!

Love and Gingerbread,


Dear Santa;

It's Mathilda again. Mathilda Brown. Eight years old. I must admit that I was a little surprised to read your letter and while I don't want to seem ungrateful, I don't know what you mean by "do our best." To me, that sounds like I'm not getting everything on my list?

Maybe you don't quite understand how good I've been this year. I assure you that I've been very, very good, and I've attached copies of my last three report cards as proof. As you can see I have perfect attendance as well as straight As. Please, please, please try to bring me all of the items on my list (see attached in cased you misplaced my last letter).

Yours sincerely,

Mathilda Brown
