Muslim Letter To Santa: Girl Just Wants To Say ThanksBy: Amanda Crum - December 14, 2012
A letter to Santa which was posted to Reddit recently has gone viral, and not because the writer is asking for something outlandish; rather, because she just wants to ask a question and give thanks for all the joy the fictional gift-giver brings to the world.
The kicker is, she doesn’t even celebrate Christmas.
The person who posted the photo said it was written by a student in her mother’s 4th grade class, which is drawing lots of criticism and controversy on the site from those who disagree with a blanket assignment in public school that doesn’t allow for kids with different beliefs to decline to participate. However, it’s not clear if it is indeed from a public school or what the circumstances were…and at any rate, the little girl who wrote it seems to have found a clever–and kind–way around it.
