a child on christmas

have you seen this?
it's a letter to santa written 100 years ago in dublin!

according to irish times:

"On Christmas Eve 1911, a brother and sister, who signed their names, “A or H Howard”, penned their personally designed letter to Santa with their requests for gifts and a good luck message at their home in Oaklands Terrace, Terenure (or Terurnure, as the children spelled it) in Dublin"

hannah & alfred howard asked for:
-a baby doll
-a waterproof with a hood
-a pair of gloves
-a toffee apple
-a gold penny
-a silver sixpence
& a long toffee

too cute!

and who can forget this sweet response to little virginia asking if santa was real.

i had the pleasure of seeing this in the newseum in DC {my favorite!}.
melted my heart!

 read it here, if you like!

my parents have kept our letters to santa from over the years.

children are so sweet.
so simple.
so loving.
their eyes are full of wonder
and their heads full of dreams.

so magical!
