Dear Santa,

I am 32 years old, and I still look forward to writing a letter to you each year. There are somethings about Christmas that will never grow old. It is not about what one gets, or what one thinks they will get. It is about the magic that the holiday can bring everyone. I still believe in you, and I don’t think that feeling is ever going to change for myself. However, Santa I am starting to see the Christmas spirit dwindle in the world. Trees are coming down, displays were coming down weeks ago, I understand that Christmas decorations are being put out earlier each year, but why would the spirit falter.  This year I am asking for something that you will not expect. I am asking you to send a giant jolt of Christmas spirit. I want people to smile and have those moments with their families that are going to be cherished for years to come. I know how much those moments can mean to someone especially when they are being missed at the holidays.

Normally, I would have a massive list of things to ask, but this year I don’t have anything really. It’s kind of hard to get something for someone who feels like they have hit the lottery in life. I have been blessed by some amazing people in my life, and that is more than I could have ever asked for.

I have two things to ask you that you may not be able to do, but hey it is worth a shot. First off, can you help the doctors find a way to make me seizure free? I know it is a lot to ask for, but I know it would be greater than any present that one could get me. I would love to be able to have that independence in my life back. I also wouldn’t mind being able to help out on future road trips.

The second thing I ask for is a little more than anyone is expecting. Santa, I am recently married and with that comes the next step. I know the timing is about right and this is more for next year. I would love the gift of a child. I would love to finally become the father that I have always wanted to be. I am ready to share the spirit of Christmas with my own child. To wake up on Christmas morning with my wife just to see their face would make everything worth it. And if you the timing is right and we have that bundle of life around Christmas, I will always promise that we will never combine their birthday with Christmas.

And I figure I need to ask for something superficial so a second Playstation 4 controller would be nice because my life now has a constant player 2 and a copy of Madden. I need to show some youngsters how we adults do Madden.

I know you can make this happen because I believe.

Richard Pruitt.

PS: Floor seats to a WWE Smackdown or a PPV would also be pretty awesome.

About the author

Richard Pruitt

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
