Carnivorous plants, livestock, and “a whole box of doctor gloves” are just some of the requests found in a hilarious collection of children’s letters to Father Christmas.
But among the pleas for toys, games and pigs, there are a number of queries from inquisitive youngsters who are keen to use their missive to Santa to pick his brain.
One child asks for a cat, dog and a pig for Christmas, while another wants a big horse and a box of doctor’s gloves among other things.
One cheeky child tries their luck requesting Santa brings all the presents early, and another wants the whole picture, demanding to know what other children are getting before he makes his demands.
Concerned about his friend Carter, Cullen wishes to know whether or not his buddy made the “nice list”.
Another excited child asks for a real Venus Flytrap and Lightsaber, while one poor mite admits it is not necessary to bring him anything at all, because he has been “somewhat bad” this year.
Promising they’ve been good this year, a couple of the children attempt to butter up the delivery man, telling Father Christmas they love him and that he is their “best pal”.
There are also several questions about the existence of Rudolph and his famous red nose, while one young man wishes to ascertain facts about the largest cookie Santa has ever eaten.
One inquisitive youngster asks a series of questions, including: “What are you getting for my sisters?”; “How tall is the average elf?” and “Did you stick the gifts in the basement because there was no room in the sleigh?”.
