This Boy Didn’t Get Everything He Wanted For Christmas, So He Decided To Get Back At Santa With These Hilarious Letters

When you’re a kid, one of the best parts of Christmas is the idea of Santa Claus, the fat, magical elf-man who leaves you presents to confirm that yes, you’re a good kid. Unfortunately, sometimes children get so caught up in the concept that they can get a little greedy in the process.

Like Jeremy, this kid who wrote to Santa the day after Christmas because he didn’t quite get everything he asked for.

Okay, in a weird way, it’s a cute letter — but also almost everything kids do is adorable to me, so maybe I’m biased. Either way, it’s pretty funny to imagine a little boy writing this letter in a rage because he didn’t get everything he’d wanted for Christmas.

Of course, his parents decided to try to teach Jeremy a lesson by responding to his note as “Santa.”

The note would probably be enough to shut some kids up (personally, the idea of being on the naughty list freaked me out when I was young), but not Jeremy, who’s next letter went from 0 to 100 real quick. In fact, he started the letter with “Deer Fatty.”

Okay but is he wrong??? We really need to find a way to update this whole Christmas myth to make it a little more PC.

Of course, Santa retaliated.

But Jeremy is nothing if not a fighter.

Okay, I’m definitely getting some baby sociopath vibes right now, but is it weird that I kind of like it??? I mean, sure, he kind of seems like an ungrateful brat (with a very dark side, jeez), but I seriously can’t stop laughing at all these ridiculous letters.

Hope you like your coal next year, Jeremy. For some reason, I feel like that’s all you’re going to be getting. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
