Christmas Wish for the World

Posted by Santa Claus on December 21st, 2008

I am very lucky. I get to see the whole world.  I get to see many wonderful things.  People have done such great things.

But, I see a lot of things that make me a little sad too.  I see people who are hungry.  I see people who are hurting.  I see many things that make me thankful for all that I have.

And I see many things that give me hope.

What always gives me the most hope is the young people of the world.  The kids that , the , and I love so much.  The kids like you reading this.  The kids who can make the world a better place for all.

You see, the elves and I are really good at making toys and other Christmas presents.  But, we just are not very good when it comes to other things.  Like making the world a better place.

I think that is why we like making toys.  It is the one thing we can do to make people happy.  Even if it is not as important as finding a cure for disease.  Or stopping world hunger or war.  Those are things that people have to do!

So here are some things we cannot do at the North Pole that we are wishing for this Christmas:

Frosty the Snowman wishes an end to global warming.  I do too.  (It is very hard to be a snowman when it is so warm after all!)

The elves wish they could make every child in the world safe and happy.  I do too.

The reindeer wish people would stop hurting other people and animals.  I do too.

Mrs. Claus wishes that all people could live together in peace and harmony.  I do too.

And, my Christmas Wish for the world this year will be the same as always: “Merry Christmas to All and to all a Good Night!”

Now it is your turn.  What is your Christmas wish for the world?  People all over the world will read your wish to them.  That is pretty amazing and special.

After all, the is not about what we wish for ourselves.  It is about what we wish for others!

(If you are wishing for a present from me, then go to my “Email Santa Claus” page.)

I wish you a very Merry Christmas!

    Dear Santa,

    My daughter, Emma, just sent you a wish email and her third wish is “a little help to end global warming.” It makes me happy and sad.

    Happy because when 9-year-olds are thinking about it on their Christmas lists, maybe there’s enough awareness to create change.

    Sad because it reminds we that as parents and grandparents we’re leaving a terrible legacy to the next generation; we tell them to “clean your room” but we’re not cleaning up ours.

    There’s so much to wish for in helping our world that sometimes it’s overwhelming, and sometimes I feel hopeless. But at the same time I know that our world is still filled with magic and love (which are the same thing), and you are one of the great spirits of that wonder. So together we still have a chance to get on the “nice” list.

    – Josh

I hope to write to you more, i will also come back and visit this website alot more. I have to go to football training now. Bi santa, Hollyxxx

  98. Yana

    Hi Santa,
    My wish, well, I’d like all people to be friends and not to steal, kill, hate, even lie. I lie my parents sometimes but I really don’t want to. I’m afraid that they will be very anxious and I could get hurt (hardly ever).
    And I’m afraid that there’s a global warming and even the half of the people in the world don’t care. But something verry verry important- all people want to use majic. They can only do it tigether, but how will they do it when they don’t believe in it?

  99. Casey

    My wish is that the war would stop…my dad has to go over and fight every once in a while and its really sad to not have him around the house all the time…but it makes me happy when he comes back!!!:)<3 <3

    Cody Waters was such a strong, brave boy, who’s smile never seemed to dissapear. And Jennette McCurdy met him. So please be like Jennette McCurdy (Jennette plays Sam from iCarly) and help raise awareness to cancer.
