This letter is from a child who has behaved better in the last year.
Last year, I was a very bad <boy/girl>, and Mommy and Daddy said that's why I didn't get very many presents. So this year I tried very hard to be good and do what grownups told me. I wasn't perfect, but I think I got a lot better compared to last year. Since Mommy says I deserve an "A" for effort, would you please bring me some better presents this Christmas? I would just like a <present you'd like> and maybe a <another present you'd like> if you don't think that's asking for too much. I hope you have been watching, because I've been trying very hard. Merry Christmas!
