Dear Father Christmas:

It is years since i wrote to you.
I hope this letter finds you well and that the snow is still continuing to fall up in lapland.

Here it is mosly rain, not even jumper weather yet! But the christmas albums are already being played in the shops.
That must be so embarrassing to you.

I know this year will be exceptionally busy for you.
We all expect a little too much of you now i think.
And there are so many imposters on television.
Even in the street.

Since i wrote to you last when i was 9 i have tried to be good. But sometimes failed spectacularly.
I have also tried to do what i’m told but often have delighted in doing the exact opposite but always i have tried to give love and try not to cause hurt.

Dear father christmas
What i’m saying is ..

Now that i’m 47. If i have any last remaining credit with you, i have just these small requests.

That my kids have a beautiful christmas.
With love and understanding and peace.
Perhaps some heavy snow? That would be really great.
And can you sent the precious things that will really mean something to them?
And can you send them some hope for the future. That is very important.

I won’t ask you to solve the problems of the human race. These are our problems alone.

But perhaps this year you could consider not giving any presents to oil company executives and the politicans whose influence they buy?

And for me? Just some reading glasses :/ the blue ones

Yours completely sincerely


P.S. Thanks for the zx81 computer when i was 11. That was really wicked.
