Some kids don't just list what they want for Christmas though - there are threats, bargaining, and very weird requests...
Here are some of the most outrageous letters Santa has had the pleasure of receiving in his North Pole postbox. We hope our little ones' letters to Santa weren't as cheeky as these...
1. The one with all the spy gear
We dread to think what this little girl gets up to after school...
2. The greedy one
Why bother listing things out? Just 'everything' will do Santa, thanks.
3. The one who really loves dinossaurs
He also threw in a day off school because why not. DO NOT let him down...
4. The sarcastic one
We don't think Santa appreciates this kind of attitude young lady.
5. The one with the two watches
One to tell the time and the other to spy on people, as you do.
6. The one with the pig
And a yoga ball.
7. The one who gets straight to the point
Sorry Santa, no time for small talk.
8. The one who really wants the puppy
All she's asking is for 'one little puppy'...
9. And the one who really wants a cat
Did we mention she wants a cat?
10. The one with the special powers
The power to make people into my family please Santa. It'll be the other way around when he grows up...
11. The very random one
Because nothing goes better with jeans and band-aids than a pair of new arms and a kiss from Morgan Freeman. Obviously.
12. The one with the two front teeth
Joey just wants his two front teeth.
13. The one with the threats
Santa, you've been warned.
14. The honest one
Hey, she's just trying to make the big guy's life easier.
