It's that time of year again! Kids everywhere are writing letters to Santa and anxiously awaiting his arrival in a few weeks. Will they make the good list? Will he bring them exactly what they hoped for? The excitement is palpable. But not for all kids.
For most 6-year-olds, this is a pretty exciting time of year.
NPR reporter Sarah McCammon posted her 6-year-old's letter to Santa."Santa I'm only doing this for the class. I know your notty list is emty. And your good list is emty. and your life is emty. You dont know the trouble Ive had in my life. Good bye. love Im not telling you my name"

There's no denying the kid has a flair for drama.
