Transkript Christmas – Do all wishes come true?

But not all Christmas wishes come true. There are many kids in America whose parents are too poor to give them anything. These kids write letters to Santa Claus too, in the hope that he won’t forget them. Their letters are actually mailed to Santa Claus, North Pole. We’re back in Chicago. This time at the main post office on Harrison Street. This is where letters to Santa Claus, North Pole, are sorted. An annual program run by the United States Postal Service here. Most of the letters come from poor kids and needy families. Thousands upon thousands of such letters arrive here during the weeks before Christmas. Simple Christmas wishes in a child’s best handwriting and requests for help from the elderly. Dear Santa Claus. I’m writing because my mother is unable to get us anything for Christmas. I know as much as she’d like to, she can’t. Believe me when I say this: Anything is better than nothing at all. Santa, if you can’t help, no one can. The Letters are put into bins. For people needing food, for senior citizens, families with one girl, one boy, two, three, four, five, six and seven children and more. At the pickup table, citizens from Chicago who want to help read the letters and take one or two back home. Dear Santa Claus. I’m writing because my mother said she will not be able to get me and my siblings anything for Christmas. Because she got cut off public aid and that was the only money she had. Dear Santa. My mom is very special to my brother and me. But we have been homeless for three months now, living in her car, where our clothes and things are. Then these people make some Christmas wishes come true. They write Santa Claus, North Pole as the sender and mail the presents to whoever wrote the letter. Sometimes they deliver the present directly, with wrapping paper and ribbon. So that a mother or a father can wrap the presents themselves. And then these good spirits slip away into the big city. Until next year.
