?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.

This kid is definitely onto something?
All's fair in love and war when you're siblings at Christmas?
This is a little too much like our Santa list this year, this may be the future face of Christmas summed up in one picture.
It's a fair question, Joshua?
A letter anyone with a younger sibling can understand?
We swear we were being good, Santa.
Written after a hurricane, this may be the most heartwarming Christmas letter of them all?
