Little Johnny's just been told there is no such thing as Santa Claus. :(

Deer Santa,

My Sister just tole me your not reel!
Busted her in the chops.  Maid me feel
better, cos I know the truth.  Maid me
m a d.  Know Im not supposed to hit, she
had it comin'.  Im defendin you -
cos I know your reel.  Ain't you?  Have to
know.  Cos if your not, I'll be reel sad.
I have really tried not to be bad ...
All I want for Christmas is to know
if your reel or not.  Ive gotta go -

Tell Mrs Clause and the raindear Hi.


Little Johnny, age 5

This was so cute, and I loved how you told it as a small boy would speak. Too bad the magic is replaced with the truth...but for those of us "big kids"....Santa will always exist!

Inside the mind of the child - excellent meter and rhyme. Now go tell that boy it's a lie! Santa really does exist - I'm 50 and I know!


PS: Please also tell him that if he busts his sister in the chops again, I'll send the Necromancer or the Stealer to visit him on Xmas night!

I never understood the inner wish of people that go telling children that this or that doesn't exist, they are like messengers of a devilish entity that thrives on making people unhappy.

Well litle Johnie, sitting out at the Mall the past week or so I have been asked this question many times...and my answer is always "If you believe in me then I am real."
My two grandchildren both recognized me as being Poppy as soon as they saw me them I was helping Santa out by filling in for him and they loved the idea that Poppy was Santa's helper.

When my daughter asked me about Santa, I said, "Do you really want to know? It might cut down on your Christmas gifts?"
She said, "Yeah tell me."
Boy, was I wrong!!!
It only upped the price of her gifts.
No more mystery, only requests.

Tell Lil Johnny that in his heart is love and compassion, the very things that make Santa Claus real.

Now if THIS doesn't make your eyes water and your throat lump up, nothing will. Such a simple request from a young boy who only wants to know the truth about Christmas. Very well penned; brava!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :D

I hope Santa brings Johnny the answer to his sad question! And I hope Santa brings YOU what YOU want! :)
