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!
Most important, I hope you had fun this morning too!
The same as every year, there are many people I have to thank for helping me.
Thank you for making Christmas merry!
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 also! I hope you liked it.
I hope everyone enjoys the presents that I brought. After all, the elves worked very hard making them just for you!
If I couldn’t make Christmas merry…
I know there are many children I could not bring any presents to this year. Or maybe I had to bring them a different present from what they really wanted.
I am very sorry if I could not bring you what you wanted. You really wanted it, I know. You should know that 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!
