Santa_FullDear Santa,

It appears I’ve done it again. I’ve frittered away the month of December and Christmas has crept up on me like an old pair of panties. 

And I can only hope this letter finds its way into your hands before Rudolph is hitched to your sleigh. You see there’s only one thing I want for Christmas. I’d really like… if it’s not too much trouble… a doover.

It seems like only yesterday it was the week before Thanksgiving and I was thinking “oh, another whole month stretches out ahead of me to enjoy the holiday season”. *Gulp* Where did the month go? I want it back. If you could turn back the clock I promise the second time around I’d use my allotted time more wisely.

I won’t wait until the week before Christmas to start shopping and picking over the clothing racks with only size 0 or 26 left. I’d send out my Christmas gifts in a timely fashion so the man at the post office won’t laugh maniacally at my feeble attempt to get packages to loved ones. I promise to plan my Christmas dinner waaay before the grocery shelves hold only pickles and day old bagles. I’ll not eat so much at the Christmas parties so the cute outfit I bought for Christmas Eve mass will still fit. I promise to keep the house picked up so when unexpected guests arrive to share some holiday cheer, I won’t be scrambling to clear the laundry off the couch and they’ll have a place to sit. I promise to buy tape, ribbon, and wrapping paper right after Thanksgiving and not pull the funnies section of the newspaper out of the recycling so my gifts are covered with something. I promise to put up the tree before Christmas Eve and have it down waaay before Valentine’s Day. I promise to wrap gifts and stack them happily under the tree and not wait until two days before the holiday to think perhaps I should have asked for gift boxes.

So, if I promise to do all these things, Santa… could you just deliver this one little gift. ‘Cause I could really use a “do over” for Christmas. 

Love, Nina

PS Anyone tell you… you’re looking good for a jolly old elf!

  • *Laughs maniacally* Oh sorry. I hope you get your do over. I could use one too. Well, I’d probably fritter my time away again.
    No promises.

  • I ask for it every year… umm… hasn’t happened yet LOL! and I haven’t learned how to use my time more wisely. Well, there’s always next year! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  • Merry Christmas Nina. Enjoy yourself.

  • Love the idea of a do-over, I am the other way round, one of those horribly organised people who if I haven’t finished with everything two weeks in advance goes into an absolute panic. Maybe I could swap a bit of mine for a bit of yours!!

    Have a wonderful Christmas, hope all the plans come together and that you get to spend some really special time with your family and friends.
