Dear Santa Christmas Letters
Here, Will and Guy bring you some amusing correspondence to Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Pere Noel. We hope that these letters, which we have discovered on the internet will entertain you.
Carl Anderson has been Santa Claus for 28 seasons, at last he has revealed what we already suspected.
Kids can be hilarious and heart-breaking and he's got some perfect tales to illustrate it write Will and Guy. Beyond the expected requests for the latest Barbie and video game, kids have whispered into Santa Carl Anderson's ear their desire for world peace and their pain at their parents' breakups.
'Kids see Santa as someone they can confide in,' Anderson, 57 informs us. One little girl simply wanted a chair so she could write in a "little diarrhoea" at her desk. 'Of course she meant diary, but the misspeaks are pretty funny,' added Anderson.
Children's musings are often more serious, and reflect what's going on in the news, or at home.
A boy pleaded for lots of toys for terrorists so they 'wouldn't hate us so much,' says Anderson. Yet another little one, '...wanted money to help mom pay the bills because she worries so much.'
It's not easy being Santa. I''s hard on the body and on the heart. 'I feel for them a lot,' says Anderson. 'It's hard when kids ask me to get their mommy and daddy to love each other again or when they want someone who is sick to recover. I tell them I can't promise anything but I will make it my wish for them - and I do,' he adds. 'Santa is a symbol of hope. They know he'll always be there and care about them and want the best for them.'

J.R.R. Tolkien as Santa
In 1920, J.R.R. Tolkien, of 'Lord of the Rings' fame, wrote and illustrated a letter from Santa Claus for his three-year old son. This, apparently, Will and Guy have learned, became a regular tradition for his children for the next twenty-three years.
Here is a Tolkien / Santa letter written in 1925:
'I am dreadfully busy this year - it makes my hand more shaky than ever when I think of it - and not very rich. In fact, awful things have been happening, and some of the presents have got spoilt and I haven't got the North Polar Bear to help me and I have had to move house just before Christmas, so you can imagine what a state everything is in, and you will see why I have a new address, and why I can only write one letter between you both.
It all happened like this: one very windy day last November my hood blew off and went and stuck on the top of the North Pole. I told him not to, but the N.P.Bear climbed up to the thin top to get it down - and he did. The pole broke in the middle and fell on the roof of my house, and the N.P.Bear fell through the hole it made into the dining room with my hood over his nose, and all the snow fell off the roof into the house and melted and put out all the fires and ran down into the cellars where I was collecting this year's presents, and the N.P.Bear's leg got broken.'
Son Discovers Mother's 100-year-old Christmas Letter.
Hannah Howard's Christmas letter was hidden and lost in a chimney for years.
The scorched letter, shown here, dated Christmas Eve 1911, had been up a chimney in a Dublin house for decades. Victor Bartlem's mother, Hannah Howard, had written her Christmas wish list when she was just 10 years old.
It was first discovered in 1992 when the current house owner John Byrne installed central heating. He came upon Hannah's letter in the chimney and decided to keep it as a memento of times past. He made it public last year  in the Irish Times and it was there that Victor - living more than 100 miles away in Bangor, County Down, read about it.
Mr Bartlem informed Will and Guy that, 'I simply couldn't believe it. I never knew about this letter. I never even knew it existed.' And he added, 'It is in the spirit of the time we are in at the moment which is Christmas," he said.
We have been able to discover what was written on this 100 year old list.
We can't help feeling that the list is far less demanding than many
