A Muslim student’s letter to Santa is going viral
The fourth grade Muslim student had never written a letter to Santa but did so for a school assignment. An image of the letter was posted on Reddit and the internet collectively oohed and awed.
Christmas isn’t a holy day for Muslims so this was the young student’s first letter to Santa. But the kid wasn’t jealous of everyone else for getting presents. Instead, the student was very thankful that Santa was “spreading happiness around the earth.”
Still, there was one question on the student’s mind: How does Santa do it all in one night?
Here’s the Muslim student’s letter to Santa.
I know that I never wrote you a letter because I don’t celebrate Christmas but I am writing you this one to thank you for giving everyone presents.
I want to ask you one thing. Is it true you go all around the world in one night? If you do can you tell me how you did it? Santa thank you for spreading happiness around the earth! And say hi to Mrs. Claus for me.”
