My name is Stephanie, and I am 19 years old but this is the first letter I have ever written to you.
I want to thank you for the joy you give to children on Christmas morning. The presents you give may be temporary and fleeting, but the Christmas morning feeling is a feeling that lasts for a very long time.
This Christmas, I am not asking for a Barbie, a CD/mp3 player, toys, games or anything I else I may have asked for in the past, but instead I ask that you continue to spread the joy and cheer that you are so good at spreading. I ask that this feeling will remain with everyone for a long time and that it transcends all ages. I hope that people take this feeling and pass it along, spreading it even further.
Thank you for your hard work, and I wish you a safe trip, come Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas!
I imagine this would be such a fun initiative to do with kids. They could learn how to write letters, which I have learned is a skill many people lack. I had to write a letter to a politician for one of my classes this semester, I thought it was fun, and pretty easy too. But I overheard so many people struggling with the structure of a letter, and the formatting of a letter. I was very shocked! I learned how to write a letter at a young age, and I have never forgotten. It makes me sad that it is turning into an uncommon skill.
Snail mail is fun :)
