Dear Santa Claus,

Throughout history you have been an idol for children, a man who can change their very behaviour through a simple statement. He knows when you are sleeping; he knows when youre awake. He knows if youve been bad or good and so on. It may seem childish, but it is true. You are a very powerful figure.

As well as knowing about you and your annual trip around the world to deliver the presents we all find under our Christmas tree, we all know about the reindeer who take you around the world in one night. We are also aware of the hundreds of elves you have slaving away in your workshops preparing the gifts you bring.

Elves are magical creatures, but they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Not only are they always portrayed as being eternally happy (which is a physical impossibility) they are also forced to work long hours throughout the entire year, and are not ever given a single day off. If they were human there would be human rights commissions all over this kind of treatment, but since they are magical creatures human rights evidently do not apply.

In this area, the reindeer under your care are in better position than the elves. Even Rudolph was stood up for and supported when the others made fun of his red nose, and in the end he was named a hero. No elf has ever been given the same treatment; they are always cast aside as a collective lump that is assumed to always be there working.

And so we ask you, Santa Claus, as our dear beloved icon of the season of giving and caring, to review your treatment of your slaves. The elves may not be humans, but that does not mean they are lesser than any of us. They deserve to be treated the same way you would treat any human working in your workshops, and should have a labour union to regulate treatment.

Santa, have you forgotten all that you stand for and teach us as young children? From a young age children strive to be good all year round. Not to please their parents so much as to please you, the jolly man in a red suit who comes down the chimney. You have taught us all how to behave and be good.

Santa Claus, please, set a good example for all future generations and free the elves from the slavery you currently have them bound in.
