Dear Santa… (A Letter From The Circus)
This afternoon, I found I’d been recruited for a bit of dictation…
Sorry we’re writing so late in December, but The Ring-Mistress has kept us very busy. She isn’t paying overtime, but we mostly like working for her, so it is mostly ok.
We have been Very Good this year, having grown from noting into something. We even earned a little money, though not as much as The Ring-Mistress spent. If you want to put her on the naughty list, we will understand.
But we have been good!!! The elephants and ponies send their love to Rudolf and the other reindeer, and would love it if they could all join us for an act in the off-season. The elves, of course, have already signed up as side-show attractions this summer. It will be a big hit.
Not the peanuts.
Those of us on the good list would like it very much if you could bring a new tent for the Big Shiny New Attraction that The Ring-Mistress wants to build. We don’t think she has enough canvas, and we really want it to be a success so she will stop looking so worried and can pay us over-time again.
For ourselves, we only want the glow of the spotlight and the applause of a happy audience.
Well, maybe some new sequins. And feathers. And rhinestones. And a few hundred yards of satin.
We hope you have a GREAT Christmas.
Don’t work too hard!

P.S. If your blogs or businesses haven’t yet written their letters to Santa, they are welcome to do so in the comment section below. I’ll print them all up and have the elephants deliver them to the North Pole, thus saving considerable postage. The elephants work for peanuts, you know.
