Letter to Jesus
Instead of sending a Christmas wish list to Santa, one little boy wrote to Jesus.
This is Billy. I wanted to tell you, I hope you have a Happy Birthday. I was worried that you might be sad, cause no one seems to be talking about you this Christmas. Mommy took me to the mall today and lots of people were there to meet Santa Claus.
I want to ask you a question. If Santa is real, then how come he don't ever talk about Christmas being your birthday? My teacher at school said his real name is Saint Nicholas. If he is a Saint, shouldn't he love you? And he should tell people about you too. I guess Santa is okay though. I mean, he can do some cool stuff, like fly a sleigh. But he can't do anything like what you can do. You made the whole world! And you make people and puppies and everything that's alive! He can't do anything like that. Santa only makes toys. I like his reindeer though. But if they are real, then you made them too, so you are way cooler than Santa.
Don't tell my Mommy I told you this, but I don't know if I believe in Santa anymore. Mommy gets real happy when I get excited bout Santa coming, so I don't want her to feel bad. I don't want you to feel bad either. That's why I'm writing you this letter. Even if nobody else remembers your birthday, I will always remember you on Christmas.
I'm not sure if Santa is real, but I know you are real, because... Remember when I was scared and I asked you to help me? Then you made me not afraid anymore. I couldn't see you, but I knew you were there, cause I could feel you make me not afraid. You walked home with me past that mean dog's house and down that dark part of the street. Thank you for doing that. Santa never does really important stuff like that. I'm not trying to say bad things about him, I just think people should love you more than Santa. Specially cause you had to die on that cross. Well you didn't have to, but you did it so we can go to heaven and be with you and cause you love everyone, even people who are bad.
There is just one thing I want for Christmas. Mommy said that my Daddy is up there with you now. Please tell Daddy I miss him, and that I remember all the stuff he taught me. And tell him I'm taking care of Mommy, and I hope I get to see him soon, and tell him Merry Christmas. Thank you Jesus.
I guess that's all I have to say for now, cept, I love you Jesus, Have a very Happy Birthday!
Your friend, Billy
