A letter to Santa: All I want for Christmas

Dear Santa,

I have always heard from my family, close friends and everyone else around the world that if I wish for something from YOU on Christmas, you will surely grant my wish. Many Christmas eves have passed since I was born and trust me, I have never felt the need to ask for anything except for, back in 2012 when I had my class XII board examinations and I had no clue about what I was going to do but even then, I managed somehow. But, this time I couldn’t help myself from writing to you.

Santa, a lot of things have changed since I was a child and honestly, I am not liking these changes very much. I remember when I was a child, my daddy used to take me and my mom for long rides across the city on his scooter and then on our way back, he used to buy me balloons, ice-cream and cotton candy. And now we have a car, a big car in fact, but there are no rides, anymore. Santa, would you please bring me back those rides? I really wish to spend a little more time with my family, even a little more would do.

Santa, you know, when we were small, my best-friend and I used to play together for hours, sing stupid songs and pretend to be rock-stars and yes, how can I forget those long conversations over the phone on the night right before exams! But now, we rarely talk; we don’t share our problems and secrets anymore but yes, she tags me in random photos and captions it as, “Love you, BFF!”.
Santa, would you please bring me back my best-friend who did not have to say that she loves me because it was so evident from her actions?

My next wish may sound weird but, believe me, it’s as sincere as any other of my wishes. Santa, strangely the first thing anyone does while visiting my home these days is ask for my place’s Wi-Fi password. Santa, please, please, teleport each and every one of us to a Wi-Fi free planet where not even the weakest of Wi-Fi signals would reach us and every one would then, prefer (or be forced to prefer) talking over typing.

I know it’s a pretty long list but Santa, I’ll be really glad if any of my wishes are fulfilled. I thank you for all the gifts that you’ve showered upon me over the years without me even asking for them. Please give my love to Mrs. Claus, the reindeer and the elves.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!
