7-Minute Stretch #9 Poetry Challenge-Yoo Hoo! Santa!

Time’s flying—soon Santa will be too!  Naughty or nice, sweet or spice, nobody wants to get left off his list. Officially, the second week in November is “Dear Santa Letter” week. Take a moment to update your wish list, then grab a pen and let ‘er rip:

Poetry Challenge #9

Dear Santa Baby . . . 

Write a letter to Santa. If you’ve been “nice” tell Santa why you deserve to be treated especially nice this holiday season. If you’ve been “naughty”… well, you’ve got some explaining to do.

For extra credit, try writing your letter to Santa in rhyme or song lyrics.

For inspiration, listen to the 1953 recording of Eartha Kit singing “Santa Baby,” written by Joan Javits & Philip Springer: 

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
