Most little kids love Santa. And who could blame them? They write down a list of all the things they want and those things just appear under the Christmas tree. It’s not like when you’re adult, when the things you want most are impossible to gift-wrap. But I digress.
Some kids have a healthy suspicion of Old St. Nick, and some don’t believe in him at all. But no child is like this little boy, whose Santa skepticism is A WHOLE NEW LEVEL. This kid took his skepticism for St. Nick and turned it into the most savage yet hysterical Santa letter of all time.
NPR reporter Sarah McCammon shared the hilarious note her six-year-old son wrote at school when he was told to write a letter to Santa.

McCammon tweeted her son’s letter a couple of days ago and it swiftly racked up over 26,000 retweets and almost 78,000 likes. She posted it complete with his amazing spelling errors. It reads in full:
“Dear 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 don’t know the trouble I’ve had in my life. Good bye.”
He signed off saying, “I’m not telling you my name.” The margin sketches of wreaths and skulls is the perfect existential-yet-festive note decor. McCammon added that the “troubles” in his life amount to his sibling, which is a sentiment we can all get behind.
PS - the "troubles" in his life? His brother. Don't call child services. ?— Sarah McCammon NPR (@sarahmccammon) December 3, 2017
