The Irish Times reported an amazing story of a 100 year-old letter to Santa found tucked in a Dublin chimney. It was found by the house’s current occupant, John Byrne, who works in the building industry.
“At that time, the fireplaces were made of brick with a shelf on either side,” Byrne. “The letter was found on one of the shelves.”
It makes some simple, very specific requests:
“I want a baby doll and a waterproof with a hood and a pair of gloves and a toffee apple and a gold penny and a silver sixpence and a long toffee”…
…and wishes Santa “Good Luck” a couple of times.
That it survived only slightly scorched is a tiny, sweet miracle.
What would be on your list?
