Interview with Santa

From unique requests to wonderment to cookies and milk to funny questions from kids

One of the most sought after celebrities at this time of year is, of course, Santa Claus. Fortunately, I was able to conduct an interview with the man in red, in spite of his busy schedule. Here’s how the interview played out …

Q: What is the most unique gift request you have received from a child?

A Santa selfie.

A: I had a boy, probably about 12 years old, ask for a doll one year. When I asked if he could tell me why, the boy said he wanted to be sure his sister got a doll for Christmas, and he wanted to give it to her. That touched me a lot. And there was a four-year-old girl who was terminally ill who wanted a teddy bear, and wanted Santa to bring it to her. I’ll always remember that.
