I think it’s absolutely adorable when youngsters write letters to Santa Claus during the Christmas season. They thoughtfully comprise a wish list of all of the wonderful things that they want and try to convince St. Nick that they deserve the items due to their good behavior.

Of course, you and I know that Santa Claus is a fictional character and that the letters addressed to him are doomed to a short life in postal limbo where they are ultimately discarded. But that doesn’t stop thousands of kids from writing to him every year … it’s truly precious how innocent and naive children can be.

Now excuse me, I have to go pray.
