Most of the Letters to Santa the Tracy Press has received from local kids have been the usual — dolls, video games, etc. A few, though, ask for much less, and much more at the same time.
I thought this one, in particular, was from a kid who really deserves her Christmas wish to come true.
"I want a puppy for Christmas beause sometimes I am very lonely. Even though it takes a lot of responsibility, at least I would no longer be lonely. If my wish comes true, I will still not forget my other responsibilities. If I don't get a puppy, I'll try harder next time.
"I think it's cool that you know when I'm sleeping or awake. Even though I've become older, I will still believe in you no matter what. You rock Santa Claus! I wish I could go to the North Pole to see your factory and everything!
"Sincerely, Bianca ~ Bethany Elementary fourth-grader"
Santa, if you're listening, please bring Bianca a puppy.
