Spare a thought for Santa. He gets millions of letters a year to trawl through, with the vast majority of them boring and formulaic along the lines of “Dear Santa can I have an X-Box for Christmas please.”

However from time to time there are little nuggets of genius or hilarity that must surely make the jolly old guy crack a smile. Kids are known for speaking their mind, and are especially forthright when it comes to making requests (or demands), so we here at Bored Panda have decided to make a list of the funniest, frankest and most bizarre Santa Letters kids have ever sent.

Scroll down to check out the list below, and don’t forget to vote for your favourite!

I don't know why all these comments were downvoted, so I voted them back up. This girl rocks and it's lovely to see people putting religious biases aside to celebrate the true teachings of their religion - happiness and love towards all. If only everyone thought the way this little girl did.

It'd be nice if kids didn't have to hear about politics from grown ups. Let kids be kids, and make up their own mind where they stand once they're older.
