ESL Christmas: Letters to Santa

If you are a parent with children who believe in Santa Claus, here is a good collection of letters to Santa. Even if you don't have children, the article in The Independent raises some interesting questions. It is a good reading  practice focused on a Christmas  theme. Try reading it without a dictionary to begin with. Check for unknown words after you have read it.

From requests for Lego and leg warmers to a popcorn maker and a Puffle, 33 letters to Santa are an art form in themselves. Clare Dwyer Hogg delves into the world of children's wishlists. (The Independent)
