Skeptical 6-Year-Old Writes Disillusioned Letter To Santa And The Results Are Hilarious

Diply 5 Dec 2017

For children, Christmas is about one thing, and one thing only: presents and sugary treats.

The entire holiday season is only a long, exciting period of anticipation for the gifts that'll hopefully lie under the tree come Christmas morning. Sure there are gingerbread houses that need baking, presents that need wrapping, and trees that need decorating, but none of that crap even comes close to that overpriced piece of plastic wrapped in toxic paper.

In an effort to keep children complacent, parents play the "Santa's watching" card for all it's worth, and in the past, it's worked. Unfortunately, with the accessibility of the internet, kids are getting wise to such tricks.

Don't believe me? See for yourself.

Sarah McCammon, a reporter for NPR Radio, recently received a letter her son wrote to Santa.

It's hard to see the aesthetic details her six-year-old included in his correspondence, but your eyes aren't fooling you, those are skulls and holiday wreaths scribbled in crayon.

Here is a closer look of this six-year-old's woke approach to writing out his Christmas wish list.

Personally, my favorite part is, well, all of it. I'm also pretty sure he scribbled the word "die" in the mailbox, so there's that.

If you can't seem to make out the scribbling of a young madman, here is a transcribed version provided by Sarah herself.

I mean, I don't blame him for refusing to provide his name. If Father Christmas is real (like the adults want us to believe), shouldn't he already know everyone's name?

I have to hand it to this kid, this is a bold move and a savage strategy.

Hopefully, it pays off. Either way, being internet-famous is always better than a few junkie presents sprinkled underneath the tree.

Unless, of course, there is no jolly old Saint Nick, no naughty list, no elves, and no Rudolph.

If one domino falls, down goes this whole charade. What aren't they telling us?!

Putting this debate aside, a ton of other parents are relating to this little boy's existential crisis, and Twitter is loving it.

I hope to God I have a "spicy child." Otherwise, I'm going to be extremely disappointed.

Thank you for the clarification, but it was unnecessary.

I just assumed this child was way ahead of his time. Unmasking the deranged stranger in a red hat isn't a crime. In fact, it's a great service to all of mankind.

Move over, Alex Jones, this little lady's got the conspiracy game covered.

When I was three, I was basically still spouting soft serve in my cloth diapers, so cheers to this little Einstein.

Stay woke, kid.

It's better to be disillusioned than to be another lifeless drone lost in a sea of lies. Question everything, little truth-teller. We are all so proud.
