Letters like these is why Santa laughs a lot.

Posted Dec 11, 2013

I scoured the internet looking for the funniest kids’ letters to Santa. As you will see, letters to Santa reveal cultural memes as well as personal desires. Here are the top five, ranked by funniest first. Of course, humor is subjective, so if you know of a funnier letter to Santa, please let me know in the comments section and I will consider including it in a future post.

Funniest Letters to Santa

1. By far the funniest letter I found is from The Ugly, a mommy blog by comedian Raquel D’Apice. The title is A Ten-Month-Old’s Letter to Santa, so yes, technically it wasn’t written by a kid. But if her baby could write, he would definitely write this. Following are the first two items in the list. Click here to read the full letter.

Dear Santa,

I am a ten-month-old baby and I write because my mother has been sending out my “Christmas List” to people, and her list does not in any way represent the things I really want. And I know you’re ready to make the joke about ten month-old babies and how all we want is the wrapping paper and the boxes. Touché, SantaTouché. We do, of course, want those things. But I have a number of additional things I want very badly.

My list is enclosed below. Have a lovely holiday.
