Letter to Santa by a two-year-old goes viral for its ‘adorableness’ and the fact that his father helped him write it.
Jingle bells are around the corner and the world can not keep calm because ‘tis the season of red, green and white. The snow is being welcomed and the trees are being lit for children to receive their gifts under it! While children are getting ready to impress Santa Claus, the internet is enjoying every letter written by a kid to him. One of Santa's elves, u/pdlbean, a parent, posted an adorable first letter written by her 2-year-old with help from his father on Reddit. The image of the letter shared shows a very considerate and helpful child who has a passion for all things a two-years-old has.
He begins the letter by addressing “Dear Santa” and goes on to introduce himself, “My name is Silas. I am two years old. I’ve been very good this year.” Silas continues to explain further the ‘goodness’ that he’s practiced this year and writes, “I help my baby brother with my 'majic' wand, I help mommy clean up toys and I help daddy start the dishwasher.” The boy definitely has learned what it means to help around the house and assist parents in their day-to-day lives. Silas moved on from describing how good he has been to what he wants as a reward for the same. He writes, “For Christmas, I want helicopters, monster trucks and specifically a Trolo Loco monster truck, orange helicopters and also an orange dinosaur and binona trucks.” Silas definitely knows what he wants and the specificity is quite smart and deserves admiration because most adults hardly know what they want in life, right?
Silas cutely signed off the letter wishing Santa a “Merry Christmas and Thank you.” In the end, Silas even signed off the letter with some cute scribbling that seemed inspired by the signatures he had seen in his life so far. The heart-warming letter written by Silas, with the help of his father, won the internet’s hearts and the comments section blew up with ‘aww’ feelings.
u/Yikes44 wrote, “‘I help daddy start the dishwasher’ made me laugh. I guess it’ll be the elves loading and unloading it then.” to which the mother replied, "In his defense, we don't trust him with glass yet, lol." u/Upstairs-Guava8339 commented, “Your two-year-old has very neat writing,” and the mother replied, saying, “I am in no way claiming my two-year-old wrote this down.” u/duxpdx joked about the spelling and said, "But magic is spelled with a 'g.'" The wife replied to this comment and said, "I'll make fun of my husband for you."
Christmas is the time of the year for all things merry and cheery. Especially for children, it is the time for gingerbread houses, treats, cookies, warm and fuzzy feelings and all things love and light. Letters to Santa are part of a bigger tradition of Christmas but also work as a positive reinforcement for children to learn good behaviors and correct their mistakes.
