Santa’s wish

The North Pole postman is as busy as can be as millions of children across the world send their Christmas wish lists to Santa.

Santa reads each and every letter and then he and his elves get to work.

Teddy asked Santa for a wooden sled. Tim asked for a wagon: Color it red, he said. This 10-room doll house is going to Jill and this rocking horse was made for a little boy named Bill.

The Smith twins wrote Santa and asked for violins and a little girl named Allison wants a top that spins.

Jack asks for a Jack-in-the-box. Sam wants a bat and mitt.

But along with these toys for the good little girls and boys is Santa’s wish for a white Christmas full of joy.

Many people think Santa would want cookies and milk with tons of toys. But as Mrs. Claus always says, “A happy heart is a friendly heart.”

Santa’s heart will be full of happiness when he sees what the elves asked Mother Nature to do for him. On Christmas day, Santa is full of joy to see glimmering white snow and hear the laughter of children throughout the world.
