You've ignored my letters for the past 70 years, so I'm not going to waste this one on requests that you'll ignore yet again.
I really want nothing at all this Christmas; at my age if you haven't got it, then you don't need it.
I have all I need for a reasonably comfortable life, my minor illness is easily controllable, and COVID-19 has yet to knock at my door.
So may I occupy your time by asking on behalf of others.
Would you see to it that 'Common sense' is equally distributed; some seem to have far too much, and others, sadly, have far too little.
Would you also grant those who have none, a certain amount of 'pleasantness'; there are too many folk out there who seem to enjoy being unpleasant, love conflict, and who would find their lives greatly improved by your gift.
And lastly, may I ask that you share some of your own renowned 'generosity'; both materially and in spirit. It could only help make the world a better place.
All rather tricky I'm afraid Santa, but I know you'll do your best.
On the night of the 24th, my Yule Log will be burning on the fire, a small glass of Single Malt will be warming nearby; as will your usual Mince Pie and Carrots for the Reindeer.
Your long time friend, Cro x
