The holidays can bring up lots of emotions - from joy, to anxiety, to straight-up nihilism! OK, maybe nihilism is a bit (a lot) of a stretch, but one 6-year-old recently demonstrated his ambivalence around the whole Santa thing - or at least his ambivalence around Santa-related school assignments.

The 6-year-old's mom tweeted the letter, which reads:

Dear Santa,

Santa Im only doing this for the class. I know your notty list is emty. And your good list is emty. And your life is emty. You don't know the trouble Ive had in my life. Good bye.


Im not telling you my name

His mother was quick to disclose that the "troubles" in his life were just his brother.
