A Letter To Santa

In our open letter to Santa, we ask for a couple of things that would make life just a little better and realise that we can't always rely on Santa to make things happen.

A Letter To Santa
36
Dear Santa, 2012 was pretty good. I know you're busy wrapping up our presents, but I've been thinking about 2013 and hoped you could help with some other requests. There's just a couple of things. Nothing outlandish. First, I'd really like a custom Gibson and Batmobile hybrid. I know that sounds unusual, but I've drawn some pictures and it's definitely plausible. Second, we have a really awesome community of people on UG who we've really come to like. They make us laugh in the comments, they look after each other, and work really hard to perfect their craft. Music is a noble art, and few people in the world really get it. This community gets it. Maybe you can do something special for them. Also, can you to take a look at how many people have asked for guns this Christmas? I know there's plenty of valid reasons for having them, and the vast majority of gun owners are responsible with their weapons. But as we've seen this year, they aren't always conductive to peace. I mean, they focus the entire energy of an explosion in one direction, and some of them can do that a bunch of times every second! That's crazier than an on-stage comment from Dave Mustaine. I'm not saying you can stop every tragedy from happening, but you're one of the most connected guys I know, so I thought I would mention it. I'd also like Tony Iommi to get better. He's just too cool to die of cancer, man! His treatment is going well, but I won't rest until he's all clear. If you can't cure him, give him some local beer from his hometown of Birmingham. It'll cheer him up. Can you check on all the kids who were affected by Hurricane Sandy too? A bunch of them probably don't have their regular house to enjoy. I know you'll think of something special. I'll be sure to donate some money to the Red Cross relief fund too. You know, there's a bunch of things I wish I could ask you for - but now I think about it, I should take some of that responsibility on too. Maybe next year I'll start thinking more about what I can do for others, instead of relying on people like you and the Red Cross to do it all for me. It might just be small, but maybe for someone it'll make a big difference. I'll start with a $50 donation to the Red Cross right now. I'm not sure what to do after that, but something tells me it's the right path. Thanks Santa. Love from UG xx P.S. Don't forget: Gibson/Batmobile hybrid. With a built-in amp and webcam. I'll be waiting. Oh, and a dog with wheels instead of legs. Maybe with remote control. That would be rad. Donate to the Red Cross now.

    Give me family and friends and I'm set for the holidays. Merry Christmas. PS: I want a Schecter that can turn into a giant freakin sword and shoot beams of powerful notes of destruction.

    Two types of transformers that transform into Strat's and Les Paul's that are always fighting each other.

    Thank you for giving a mention to sandy, mentioning that guns are dangerous, suggesting that most individuals are safe, and NOT mentioning legislation. furthermore, while you may not be able to get a dog with wheels. i'd like to remind you that cat-o-copter is totally freakin real.

    One of my 'friends' recommended we watch this, so we did. We never saw him again

    I practically bought everything for myself on my own and also think of others before me. Been helping out someone lately in need of care, so all i think i really want is to spend time with her!

    Trying to figure out what the hell the purpose is of trying to rile up the gun control debate before the "too cool to die of cancer" remark, I don't think making light of the man's battle with cancer was a very tasteful way to go. To the author - As for using this as a way to inspire donations to the Red Cross, while I certainly sympathize with the cause, please put a little more thought or heart into it to actually appear as if you give a damn. The 5 or so sentences out of the entire article about donating came across as more of a footnote than the point of the article.

    sometimes sad events happen that change how the majority of people see things, I fully commend anyone who is a responsible gun owner, everyone in sweden goes through military training and gets a gun and you don't hear about them having gun violence problems, there are many ways to fix a problem and the best thing we can do right now is have constructive conversations on this, listen genuinely to each others ideas of how to move forward, and of course enjoy this beautiful day. Merry Christmas everyone!(and of course to the jews out there, naa naa naa naa na, we get to shove our holiday down peoples throats and you don't)

    erhm.. everyone in Sweden does not go through military training, it's optional and even if you go through it, you don't get a gun.
