Dear Father Christmas (or Santa),
I'm sure you are called Father Christmas but my cousin Angela who lives in America, says your name is Santa. I got confused and didn't want to upset you by using the wrong name, so I'm writing both just in case. Hope that's ok.
Have got my Christmas list already? If you haven't that's good because I wanted to say something. I had a long talk with mummy and daddy and they said maybe it was a bit too long and that you probably won't be able to carry all the things on your sleigh.
I don't want Rudolph and the other remainders to get tired, so I thought maybe if I could just have the first 3 things on the list. Oh and number 7 too because that's not really big or heavy. If you have room and if the remainders are strong enough, number 6 would be brilliant. And number 6 doesn't really work without number 5. Number 8 was actually not for me it was for my dog so I thought we could put that on a separate dog-list then it won't really count.
Mummy said that you might only have room for one present and I should tell you the one I want the very most. So I think that is number 1. Or number 2.
Ps: I tidied my room this morning and I haven't annoyed the dog for ages.
