Yes, letters to Santa Claus are a very important part of our Christmas preparations around here. Did you know, there are even special mailboxes to put the letters in? I don’t think the regular USPS delivers to the North Pole. We could send email, but we prefer traditional letters.
Bailie and I got or our paper and writing tools. It’s not easy drafting up our letters. We need to put a lot of thought into them. Santa doesn’t like greedy dogs, so we try to only ask for what we need. Thankfully Bailie and I don’t need a lot of things.
We did hold off on the letters until we got our nice list confirmations. Honestly, I was a bit worried about Bailie making the list since she can be real naughty, but she never means any harm. It seems Santa sees her big heart, and that is what really matters.
Bailie was also deep in thought trying to decide how to narrow her list down. I think she is more needy than I am. Maybe because she destroys things she loves, she needs more things?
After working for a while on our own, we both decided to combine our letters to Santa Claus into one joint letter. Lately, we seem to do almost everything together, so why not our letters too? Bailie and I are super close, and have gotten even closer since losing Emma.
Our conclusion was to each ask for two things we really want or need. Bailie did the writing, and I added some decorations to make our letter festive, and stand out to Santa. I guess on the 25th of the month we will see if our letter was well received by the big guy at the North Pole!
