Western MA Child Asks Santa to Change Dad’s Work Shift Instead of Toys
A 10-year-old from Springfield has written her letter to Santa Claus. What she asked for is, probably, not what you would expect.
The letter, in which a photo of the wishes was submitted by the child's grandmother to WWLP, states that she doesn't want toys or gifts for Christmas. Instead, she has asked the jolly bearded one for better work hours for her father.
Here's what the letter said:
Dear Santa (Saint Nick),
I want very little things for Xmas. I've been okay this year. But out of all the things you bring me, I would want one of them to come true, and the only people that can grant my wish are you and my dad's boss. This is a very special request. I would like you to change my dad's work shift time. Now it's 4:30-1:00. I would like you to change it to 6:30-3:00. He would be so happy and when he is happy, I'm happy. And I'll tell you this: I'll even let you skip my house (I only want 3 things) but can you please just change his shift?
This is pretty cool of this young girl to use her wishes to Santa in lieu of making her father happier. Especially in 2018, those examples are few and far between. Kudos to you, Zee and I hope Santa comes through for you and your father.
