Letter to Santa 2000

(History of the Styn Santa letters in Probing Santa )

Merry Christmas, Santa!

We realize that sometimes it's easier to put on blinders and go through life. But sometimes it's important to look within yourself and ask, "WHY?"

  • Why do I feel it is important to have the fastest sleigh on the block?
  • Why do I feel the need to wear flashy red clothes all the time?
  • Why do I surround myself with "little people"?

What are you overcompensating for? Are there problems with Mrs. Claus? Or perhaps an inferiority issue (seeing as how your big day is kinda over-shadowed by that Jesus guy)?

Here are some books that might help you confront the inner you.

And remember, no matter what, we love you.

SANTA'S REPLY (found in the morning):

Dear J & J

Thank you so much. I see now that I was afraid to reveal my feminine side. I've tried so hard to stay at the top, but I haven't allowed my sensitive nature to emerge.

I see now that all that "naughty and nice" list-making was an attempt to feel superior and an excuse to be judgmental. In the off season, I'm going to devote my time to sensitivity training and introspection.

Thank you,
