Dear Santa,
I would like more water and funnyness for the world. I would like some toys, a xbox one, some game cards, and more thanks for Christmas for when people open their presents they get happy for what Santa gave them for Christmas, and for it to be less cold on Christmas Day, to play outside to have fun with their toys they got for Christmas, and so when they open the present they laugh. I would also want a new gaming chair, a new pc, and scuf gaming controller for my xbox, and a keyboard and mouse, and fortnite christmas tree.

And stop hunger help people whithout homes and surveve so one day they have a home and to have food stay ok during cold winter days. At least one mafen and one outlet and one blanket and home. Keep everyone in the world happy and I wish the world was perfect but their is meny things that are not perfect and we need love in this earth it is our home we live on in and we need to protect it and that means no poutition. In monterey students have to where masks wehen they go outside to the play ground because thair is to much polution we must take care of earth.

Dear Santa,
I want to help the people that are sick. This christmas I would help the people that are sick and the one’s that don’t have money and the one’s that don’t have food. This christmas I want fortnite figures, a new baseball glove. I would like to give toys to the kids that don’t have toys so they can play and have fun. I would give them money so they can buy something to eat and drink. I would help the school and my teacher and the principal. I would make them happy if I gave them all the stuff that I said. At D.G.G. they set up the tree and in my house it is the same in my house I put up the tree, but one thing different in our house but one thing different in my house we put up stockings. My mom helps me put up the tree and my dad also. I do the stocking by myseld it is a little bit hard to do. I would want to get a race track, and hot hwells. I would want a toy of a nerf gun, and I want a dinasoar toy. I would help the people that are hungry and thirsty. I would help my friends and family not to get sick so I could take care of them. I would help the people that are cold and I would help the people that are poor
