Creative Youth Ideas Christmas Letters to Santa Instead of writing letters to Santa, why not write a letter to God? Dear Santa, Please when you come to my house would you bring me a doll that eats and cries, and my little pony and video games. I don't want you to bring me another brother, but my mom says that you are going to be bringing one around Christmas, but I already have one and he just gets in my stuff and breaks it. You can bring my dad a new job 'cause the mill he works at is not working right now... Thank you so much and mom says we will leave cookies for you by the door that's because we don't have a chimney. Love, Sarah ChristmasPartyList.com Dear Santa, I want a skateboard for Christmas and my mom said I can't have a skate board unless I wear a helmet and pads – so I guess you'd better bring those too. Tommy ChristmasPartyList.com Dear Santa, This is my Christmas list: a bike and a wii and a basketball hoop the kind that you sit in the driveway and I want surprise stuff too. Santa - I have been very good this year. If my sister says anything about me breaking her talking doll, I just want you to know that it just stopped talking – I had nothing to do with it even if I was holding it. Jason PS And I'm really very sorry about Blackie, her hamster ChristmasPartyList.com Unfortunately, it seems that the children writing letters to Santa this Christmas won't be getting a response. According to an Associated Press article on the 18th of November, 2009, this is because the US Postal service says it will no longer deliver the letters to North Pole, Alaska as it has done since 1954. But wouldn't it be great if, instead of writing letters to Santa, kids wrote letters to God? ChristmasPartyList.com Ask youth to think back to when they were young and wrote letters to Santa. • What did they ask for? • What things did they tell him? • Did they believe he would respond? ChristmasPartyList.com If we can put so much faith in a fictional man in red, why can't we put even more faith in the Baby in the Manger? Do we talk to Christ in the same innocent way, sharing our hopes and dreams and with faith that he will answer? ChristmasPartyList.com Ask youth to write a personal letter to God, sharing their hopes, their wishes, their fears, their joys and their sorrows. What would they ask from God this Christmas? Set up a cross and ask the youth to place the letters as a Christmas gift under a different tree - a cross - the tree upon which the Savior died to bring us life. The fact is we have all been bad. None of us have done good. But God in His great LOVE for us sent us the Greatest Christmas gift of all - He sent His son to the earth - born to die that we might live! ChristmasPartyList.com The greatest gift we can give him in response is our heart, our life - to bring everything to Him and place it at the foot of the cross. So this Christmas, instead of a letter to Santa, let's write a letter to God! ChristmasPartyList.com For more Christmas Party Ideas Visit out website at ChristmasPartyList.com
