S: Dear Santa...
FC: Dear Santa... | Written and illustrated by Nikki Tran
1: Dedicated to my nephews, Johnny, Adam, & David. With love, Auntie Nikki
3: Dear Santa, Christmas is my favorite time of the year (of course you already know that).
5: There are so many things about Christmas that I love, I cannot pick just one!
7: I love visiting you (Mom says it isn’t you, it’s one of your helpers) at Macy’s and telling you (or your helper) what I’d like for Christmas!
9: I love decorating the Christmas tree! Dad says I’m not tall enough to put the star on the tree – I don’t mind using a ladder!
11: I love wrapping gifts for my family and using pretty ribbon to tie bows!
13: I love watching Mom cook our Christmas dinner! Our turkey seems to get bigger every year!
15: Santa, as you can see, I love Christmas each year. But, there is one thing I don’t love about Christmas this year...
17: It’s nothing against you, but you see Santa, my brother is not going to be home this year for Christmas because he is fighting for our country (I live in America).
19: His favorite time of the year is Christmas too, just like mine! Do they have Christmas where he is, Santa? I hope so.
21: Santa, I don’t want any presents this year. All I want is my brother to come home. Mom says that is wishing for miracles but I believe that you help most miracles come true.
23: It’s time for bed, Santa. I’m putting my faith in you to help make Christmas the best ever. Good night, Santa! Merry Christmas! Love, Rosie
27: "Thank you, Santa! xoxo, Rosie"
