When the S.A. letter arrived: Why Santa did it
Breitbart News has been tracking the letter from Santa to Santa.
As of Wednesday morning, it had received more than 11,000 signatures from S.C. residents who wish to send Santa an update on his health, and more than 9,000 letters of support from SACO residents who want to send him a card or a gift.
Here’s what Santa said in the letter, as reported by Breitbart News: “Thank you for taking the time to check in on me today.
You’ve been wonderful, and your help has been invaluable.
I am thrilled to announce that I have had the good fortune to spend a day in the hospital.
As I’ve said, I’m in good hands.
My doctors say I have a very good chance of being discharged this week.
Thank you again for taking my call today.
I’ve never met a Santa that I didn’t think was worthy of your respect and consideration.
And as for the letter you sent, I am truly thankful for it.
Santa, who lives in Los Angeles, did not respond to a request for comment sent via email.
In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, he told the newspaper he would continue to travel to his hometown in his wheelchair, despite the letter’s positive reception.
“I’m doing fine.
I don’t feel any different,” Santa said.
“My heart is full.
I think I’ll get to Santa’s house and say hi to him.
A spokesman for Santa’s office did not immediately respond to request for additional comment.
