A child has written a jaded letter to Father Christmas.
Sarah McCammon's little six-year-old son took a more cynical approach when asked to write a wish-list to Santa during his class.
His mum posted the letter to Twitter, and wrote: "My 6yo Santa skeptic was told to write a letter to Santa at school. So he did... (sic)"
The little child refused to give his name and accused the mythical legend of not paying attention to any of the "naughty or nice" children's lives.
Decorated with skulls around the edge, her son wrote: "Dear Santa,
"Santa I'm only doing this for the class. I know your naughty list is empty.
"And your good list is empty. And your life is empty. You don't know the troubles I've had in my life.
"Good-bye (I'm not tell you my name). (sic)"
His mother also took to Twitter to defend the "troubles" he has had in his short life, and said it was because of his brother and asked for people not to call social services.
