Santa’s Christmas Wish for the World – 2012

Posted by Santa Claus on December 22nd, 2012

I know many of you have wonderful Christmas traditions.  You have told me about them in my blog!  (Yes, I do read everything that you write in my blog :-) !)

Well, I have a special Christmas tradition of my own too.  It is my annual Christmas Wish for the World!

Would you like to learn more about my special Christmas tradition – my Christmas Wish?

Well, 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.  After all, bad things do happen to good people through no fault of their own.

I see people who are hungry.  I see people who are hurting.  I see people who are afraid they will not have somewhere to live.

This year I have received many emails from Moms and Dads needing help.

Yes, 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, we 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.  That takes more than Santa’s magic.

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.  Or making sure people have a safe place to live.  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.  We have been asking for these things for a long time.  We hope maybe this is the year some of them will be granted:

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 right here on my blog!  That is pretty amazing and special.

Just remember, if you want to make a wish for a present from me, then go to my “Email Santa Claus” page.

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S.   What is your Christmas wish for the world?  What do you do to make the world a better place?  You can leave your wish for the world here.   Or, scroll down to see others’ Christmas wishes!

I can’t wait to wake up on Christmas morning and see all the presents under the tree and in the stockings:). I hope you know what I really want, a iPhone or just any other phone except a flip phone please. I hope that you have a good Christmas and mrs. Claus and all the rain deer and elves. Merry Christmas and a happy new year:)!

  90. Maia

    Me and my family have a tradition where we put out our pillow cases and you fill them with small toys, pencils and lollies!
    Santa I thank you very much and I cannot beleive your coming tonight!

  91. Hannah

    Dear Santa, or should I say a fat red stocker. Why do you always break into my house every year? And you need to go on a diet. Also, while you were kissing my mom, your reindeer friends had run over my grandma. Also you get way to much credit for what you do. When they say you deliver presents all in one night, you have a full 24 hours. While one end of the world is night, the other is day, so yOu have twelve hours for one half of the world. Also, there are many naughty kids in the world, so that takes alot of kids off your list, and also many countries and families do not celebrate Christmas so that is many less. So that is what I think of you, Santa.

  92. ashanti

    dear mrs.claus i love you and your wounderful family also and mr.claus is a great man and i will understad that if he dont git me all of the things that i asked him for god bless you and her family and i love you all also

  99. Lily

    I hope that this year on Christmas morning kids are happy with the presents they got and get to spend that special day with a family member

  100. laura

    I wish that all the people would understand that there are other people who need a home, food, water and shelter. And what would make my day is seeing people share what they have to the people who do not have that. I also wish for everyone to have a wonderful and safe holiday. And for people to help each other who in need. For the homeless to have shelter and food. For the world to be in peace and happiness all year around. For the people who dont have loved ones to share this holiday with is for them to be with someone who cares about them.I hope everyone is loved this Christmas and also that everyone get’s at lest 1 present! If you don’t get what you wanted to not be disappointed and to be glad you have got everything like: a loving family,food,water and lot’s more that other people don’t have! Merry Christmas:):):):):-)

( She’s only 15 )Anyway if you were to visit my town you would see all these signs everywhere that says “Sarah Strong”. Her last name isn’t strong it’s just that she’s strong against cancer,and it’s really sad. So my wish is to find a cure for cancer. There are millions of people dieing from it every year and it’s just so sad.:(

    I really like Christmas! It’s my favourite holiday! I love to receive presents, but my family, well, not much of it comes in for other holidays. But for Christmas… everyone comes in! And I have a cousin who is rather rude. She always has to look on the dark side of things. So my wish to the world is that everyone should look on the BRIGHT side, even in the darkest days. It will help you get through tough times. Remember to ALWAYS have hope!
