I hope this letter finds you, Mrs. Claus and all the elves well and COVID-free. I have not seen any pandemic statistics for the North Pole, specifically, but I trust that the isolation of your neighborhood has kept the number of cases down.
I know you receive countless letters every year, and I imagine that some of the lists you get will be especially long and heartbreaking this year. I don’t envy you your job. While I hesitate to burden you with a list of my own, there are some things I’m wishing for, and I’m hopeful that you will have the time and the resources to make every single one of my wishes come true. Please know that my family is safe, healthy and not in need – a blessing for which we are all extremely grateful. But there are others . . .
