Every Christmas, I make it a point to read some children’s letters to Santa Claus.They express their wishes
and desires so lovingly.Here is a selection of children’s messages to Santa Clause, or Father Christmas,
that will enchant you, some will fill you with Christmas cheer, whilst others will leave you misty eyed.

Here is another story about a little boy who got a Santa friendly chimney made in his house:
6-yr-old helps create Santa-friendly chimney
Reuters | Dec 21, 2011 
London: A worried letter from six-year old Leo Park sparked a mammoth operation to test what is believed to be the world’s first chimney specifically designed to accommodate Santa Claus.The little boy’s parents are having a house custom built and when Leo viewed the plans he was concerned that the chimney wasn’t big enough for Father Christmas and his famous belly that shakes when he laughs like a bowl full of jelly.As he was penning his traditional letter to Santa, Leo decided to also write a heartfelt missive about the chimney design problem to Jeremy Paxton, who owns the estate on which the new house is being built.In childish scrawl the letter reads: “Dear Mr Paxton, I am worried that my mummy’s house does not have a big enough chimney. I think Santa Claus will get stuck. Please can you help. Love Leo Park.”Paxton, founder and owner of luxury holiday home development Lower Mill Estate in the southwestern English region of the Cotswolds decided to commission a special formula to satisfy Leo’s concerns . Obviously size was the key consideration to ensure Santa won’t get wedged tight on his way to stuffing the stockings and so Paxton enlisted a mathematician to take on the challenge and save the jolly old elf from turning red for the wrong reasons.The Santa-friendly formula looked at risk factors of chimney entry, the size of St Nick’s girth versus the width of the chimney at its narrowest point. To test what they said was the perfect chimney, Paxton enlisted the help of a stand-in Santa Claus in full padded outfit, a crane, a harness and winch to put the new chimney through its paces.Leo was invited to watch as the great experiment got underway . “Go on Santa” he shouted out as the faux Father Christmas was lifted into the air towards the chimney. A few seconds later and Santa was successfully lowered into the chimney of the half-built house, re-emerging shortly after to deliver a hearty: “Ho Ho Ho” . “I can guarantee that this chimney is big enough for Santa and all the presents,” he told Leo. My comments on this cute story :
Well,boys will be boys.While we are young,we believe in so many things.
One such ages-old story is about Santa Claus. He is pictured as roly poly and fat.So naturally the boy in this
story was apprehensive about his entry through a narrow chimney.Hence his design for a Santa friendly chimney.  
Innovation indeed. Hope the boy’s efforts really pay off and he gets a big bag of goodies this Christmas.
