?But my brother Ben said the F word like two or three times and I just thought you should know,? ends one of our all time favourite Santa letters, featured on the Ellen Show. The Santa letter never fails to be the true (and ultimately hilarious) portrayal of a child’s personality.

One of our favourite kids at Christmas moments was Jimmy Kimmel’s challenge to parents to provide their kids with less than favourable presents (a nail clippers and a half eaten sandwich to name but one instance).

The results are gorgeous, sweet and worrying in equal measure. This incredibly good-natured little blonde sweetheart and our brother will always be our favourite.

It was a tough call, but these are ten of our favourite Santa letters of all time.

Don’t even pretend that you have never wondered how tall the average elf is?
