In many parts of the world, today is considered Christmas Eve – the time when countless children eagerly await the arrival of Santa Claus, that jolly, superhuman giver of gifts. Prior to Christmas morning, most of these very same children have written (and, in some cases, sent to the North Pole) lengthy wish lists, filled with all the toys, games, and other pleasures that they're hoping Santa will leave for them.
Of course, no matter what you might believe or which holidays you celebrate in your own world, it's undoubtedly tempting to think that a mythical creature might grant your fondest wish.
So, authors and characters, I ask you:
What if Santa – or his gift-giving equivalent – could bring you anything you desire? What would it be?
And, for those who celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, and/or New Year's Day, I hope you have a wonderful holiday season! See you in 2012!
