Letter To Santa
By Jerry Cegelske

Hi, I have been good this year, well at least I have tried to
be. I can't do much to prove it but maybe this will
It's nice that you are flying from roof top to roof top.
The people here leave trash on the road that they allow to blow
out of their vehicles, of course they don't think they are bad
because they wouldn't throw stuff on the road intentionally.
I wonder what they think when they get to the landfill without
their trash? Anyway your reindeer may trip on the stuff
and get hurt if they were allowed on the roads.
Don't let your reindeer eat along the roads either, they would
probably get sick if they licked the salt from the french fry
boxes or ate some of the burger wrappers, plastic bags, and other
trash people throw out of their cars, then all the children around
the world wouldn't get their Christmas presents, that would be
sad. Can people that throw trash out of their cars
be on your "nice" list?
If your reindeer get tired of flying around, don't
let them land on Revilla Road, or drink by Lake Harriet
Hunt, they may step on nails from burned pallets or on broken
glass from the shot up televisions or other trash that gets
left there, then you couldn't keep giving out presents.
You would have to take them to the vertari- vetrianiian, the
veiter- the animal doctor out North! Be careful south of
town also as they dump stuff there to!
I hope you wear goggles, especially if it is windy. The
trash flying around may block your vision so you wouldn't see
my house- I'll leave some Christmas lights on for you to see
I'll leave some cookies and milk out for you and some hay for
Rudolph and the other reindeer. If they go # 2 please clean
it up! And be careful if you walk around downtown
because they don't clean up their dog stuff either. It
would be bad to slide down the chimney and leave that stuff on
the carpet, Mom would not like it!
I don't want much for Christmas but would like it if people took
care of their trash and did not let it dirty the ditches and
blow around. Is that too much to ask for? If I can't
have that for Christmas, Please, Please let me be following someone
that lets trash blow out of their truck, or throw trash out the
car window? I would really really like it if I could catch
someone dumping this stuff that would hurt your reindeer!
They have to be on your "naughty" list!
I'm sending a picture of stuff that was allowed to blow out of
a truck on Monday so you know you have to be careful!
Merry Christmas Santa!
