Letter from Father Time year 2


Where does time go? Do you know? Every New Year seems to come faster and faster. I hardly have time between New Years to relax. There are always so many things to get done before another New Year shows up. And now here we go again, it’s almost time for another New Years.

In fact, it’s coming so fast that I may not get my letter to you in time. Cormick the leprechaun told me that the letters are supposed to be sent before the holiday! I would have written to you sooner but I’ve been so busy. There is so much to get done before the New Year can start that I totally forgot about writing this letter to you. My job is a lot like Santa Claus’ job, we both have things we have to check twice. He checks his Christmas list and I have to check all the clocks and calendars in the world twice. It wouldn’t be very good if some calendar tried to sneak in the wrong year.

They have tried it a couple of times! Someone tried to go backwards instead of forward with the years. It is not very nice, not everyone wants to go back in time. Just think about it, if we went backwards then instead of being a year older on your next birthday you would be a year younger. Instead of going up a grade in school you would go back to the one you just finished. Everything would be so mixed up. Everyone would already know what was going to happen because it had already happened once. This is so confusing it hurts my head just thinking about it. That’s why I have to check every clock to make sure they are all going forward like they are supposed to and every calendar to make sure they are all set on the correct year. Do you know how many clocks and calendars there are in the world? Millions and millions of them and I have to check them all twice, it takes a lot of time, and I never have enough time.

Have you ever had a day when it feels like all you do is run around trying to get all your work done, you know, school, homework, chores, whatever you have to do and you just can’t get it all done. That’s how I feel all the time. There is so much to do and no time to get it all done.

The only really important job I have is checking and double checking all the clocks and calendars so I had better get moving or the New Year will be here and I won’t be ready. I’ll try to get this delivered to you before New Year’s Day but if I don’t I hope you have a great New Year’s eve and a wonderful, busy New Year.

Late as usual,

Father Time

Letter from Santa Claus

Ho Ho HO

Merry Christmas!!

I just thought I’d take a few minutes and send you a quick note. Your watcher elf told me that you’ve been very good, most of the time this year. I am very glad to hear that. I like good little boys and girls.

I haven’t gotten your letter yet but I’ll bet you’ve got it written and it’s in the mail. This time of year my delivery elves are very, very busy gathering up all the mail for me to read. My Searcher elves have also been very busy checking out all the new toys and things that children will be asking for this year. There are so many new items shown on TV that I can’t always keep up with them. The Searchers go to all of the human stores, they have even figured out how to use computers in your library’s to find all the new stuff. They then bring me back pictures so I can see what everyone wants.

Sometimes they even buy one and bring it back to the North Pole so we can all play with it. That’s how we know if a toy is right or not. Sometimes no matter how much you ask for something I might not bring it if I think it is something that could hurt you, or that you wouldn’t play with after Christmas Day.

Sometimes the TV makes them look like so much fun and then when you actually play with them, they aren’t much fun at all! I try to make sure every gift I give is something you will truly enjoy for a long time.

Well, I’d better get back to reading all the million of letters and finding the best gifts for everyone. I can’t wait to read your letter.

Merry Christmas

Santa Claus and all the North Pole elves, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blizten and Rudolph too.

P.S. I hope you leave us lots of cookies! I really love cookies when I’m delivering my Christmas surprises!
