It has been brought to my attention that some people deny my existence.

It's a busy time here at my North-Pole workshops,and the last thing I expected to have to do was register with a computer magazine web-site to deal with a report that people are saying I don't exist.

As you can all see, I'm very much alive,and working hard to get everything ready for the big night when as always I'll be delivering presents to children everywhere. I'm posting a message here to reassure all those boys and girls that - contrary to what some spoilsports might try to tell you - I'm real enough,and will be there without fail on Christmas Eve. Don't forget to leave a carrot or two for my reindeer, and if you fancy adding a small nip of something warming for me it will help keep out the winter chill.

Best wishes to you all for a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New year.

While you're here, Mr Christmas, could you tell me which gadget most children have been asking for this year?

(Also, any chance we can forget the whole 'mince pie' incident and get me taken off the naughty list?)

Always wanted to know, how do you get round the lack of chimneys in modern flats?

Oh and how are

Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen? Are they ready for the long flight around the world,if there is a world of course. May I draw your attention to the interesting premise that according to the ancient Mayans,the world will end on December the 21st effectively making you redundant.

Bet you're on the naughty list but FC will bring you a humbug if you ask nicely in your letter.

I have been getting a lot of letters asking me for mobile phones and tablet computers, and one little girl has asked for princess palace with built-in prison cell where she could lock up her brother. I don't think I'll be delivering that present.

As for the mince pie incident, my elves managed to get the stains out, so I've decided that yes, you can come off the naughty list now.

The lack of chimneys doesn't bother me - I have a magic golden key that unlocks any door.

The reindeer are just fine, thank-you, if a little impatient to get going. I feed them a special diet in the two weeks before Christmas eve, so they are very fit, and well able to make the trip.

I can't say much about the Mayas and their prophesy - I don't trouble myself about such things, but I think I can safely say that I'll never be redundant.

Does that "BOOO Bah Humbug" mean that you would like me to ignore the letter you sent me, begging me for a new PS3 to replace the one you broke when you had that tantrum about turning it off when it was bed-time?

Let me wish you a belated welcome to our forum.

It's good of you to spare the time to join us when you must be rushed off your feet with preparations for your annual trip. Don't hesitate to let me know if there's anything I can do - like banning anyone who still can't accept that you're a real person.

Dear Father Christmas,

I don't believe there really is a Forum Editor! I think Matt Egan made him up, so we would all behave. Do I not get any presents at Christmas if I refuse to believe in this imaginary editor and his so-called "silver mouse"?

If you land on our roof this year, could you please mind yourself on the weathervane. I think, from the red cloth left behind last year, it might have caused your clothing - or you - some damage.

I'll leave something out for you anyway; however, as I'm an adult, and invariably naughty, I'm quite expecting to be missed off your list. Again.

Cheers.

B

FE You forgot to add, "Don't show up on this forum prior to the middle of December every year".
