A Letter to Father Christmas

Dear Father Christmas,

My children are, to say the least, a little miffed at you. In fact, they have asked me why you are so very lazy.

Let me explain:

Over the weekend we were packing our Santa Shoe Boxes and it was a little like the Spanish Inquisition.

Who are the boxes for? (For the children).

Why are we making the boxes? (Because we want to do something good for children that don’t have everything that we have and these children often don’t have Mommies and Daddies to buy them something for Christmas)

Where are the Mommies and Daddies?  (Some of the Mommies and Daddies don’t have work and some children don’t even have Mommies and Daddies)

Why is Father Christmas not taking them gifts? Is he too lazy to take them anything? (we have been on about not being lazy lately, clearly it has taken root somewhere..)

Well. Some tough questions there to answer, especially as we aren’t ready to give up on you yet old man.

So, please could you buckle up and sort out those last few boxes?


The Roux Children
