His precocious tone reminds us of other Christmas greats.
How about a holiday movie based on this letter? We could easily curl up with a cup of cocoa and settle in for 90 minutes of this kid. We want to know his thoughts on Valentine’s Day. On the Tooth Fairy. Please, kid, tell us more!
Of course, not all Twitter users found his letter funny.
A handful of responders are worried about the boy. They question the mother, naturally, and are concerned about the child’s mental health. How kind of them.
But others quickly came to the kid's defense.
If you’ve spent any time with the 6-year-old crowd, you know that they’re all different, all weird, and often say crazy things. Their brains are still ruled by mostly irrational thoughts and ideas, but suddenly they have the words and knowhow to put those ideas into writing. And it’s awesome.
This Christmas letter is maybe the most 2017 Christmas letter possible.
Let’s face it, it hasn’t been a great year. We don’t know what troubles this kid’s brother has caused him, but who among us hasn’t struggled with the emptiness of it all this past year? Is Santa a lie? Who cares? Truth doesn’t matter. Nothing does.
This kid's letter is all of us.
Hopefully Santa will rouse himself from his empty life and get this kid some great new toys. He needs them. And for us? We hope Sarah McCammon shares more of her son’s school projects.
