Ho! Ho! Ho! and Merry Christmas!
Well, the reindeer and I are very tired!
It was a very long night. But it was a very fun night!
I hope you had fun this morning too!
The same as every year, there are many people I have to thank for helping me.
I should thank the grown-ups too. Sometimes I wonder what I would do without them. Hurray for all the grown-ups! (I hope you thank the grown-ups too!)
Of course, I have to thank Mrs. Claus! Hurray for Mrs. Claus!
But most of all, I want to thank all the children! I want to thank you for the nice drinks and treats for me and apples, sugar, carrots and other goodies for the reindeer. Thank you for the great letters and emails too! Hurray for you! And “Thank you!” for watching me on the Christmas Eve Santa Snooper! I hope you liked it.
I hope everyone enjoys the presents that I brought. The elves worked very hard making them just for you!
I know there are many children I could not bring any presents to this year. Or, I had to bring them a present different from what they wanted.
I am very sorry if I could not bring you what you wanted. I know you really wanted it. I am so sad I could not bring it. I know you are sad about it too.
But, I want you to always remember something. Everyone at the North Pole, and especially me, love you very much. It does not matter what I bring you. I still love you — almost as much as your grown-ups do!
The most important gifts are the ones that I cannot bring. After all, Christmas does not come in boxes and bags. It does not come from a sleigh or a store! If you have people that love you and a warm, safe place to live, then Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!
Merry Christmas Day!
