This letter of little Jonah reflects the wish of thousands of children around the world. It is a bitter truth that says about the lack of time to the parents who could not spend a quality time with their children. This letter was about himself, which was written by his son addressed to Father Christmas. He was broken when he read the letter. He worked as a delivery driver for UPS. He had a look at the note before he sent it to Santa.
A photo of the letter was posted by Jonah’s dad to Reddit, with the caption: “I’m a UPS driver and I cried when I opened up our son’s letter to Santa.”
The letter says: “Dear Santa, I would really like to spend more time with my dad, so I would really love and appreciate it if you could help him get off work early because he is a UPS worker and people are ordering so many presents. So I would love it if you could help him in any way. Sincerely, Jonah.”
When it was shared on social media, it received around 2000 comments.
Some people even shared their own stories in which they expressed how they missed their parents during their festive season.
One of the comments said: “Dang, this is heart-melting. It resonates big with me. My dad worked some late nights for many years during my childhood. He took a lot of overtime and worked his ass off. “I do hope you can make his Christmas wish come true.”
Another notable comment read: “I hope every parent in this thread gets a chance to read this. I hope they understand that kids, especially when being difficult, are sometimes demanding such a simple thing.”
In an overwhelming response, someone told: “I know it won’t help you at all, but I just want to send you and your family love for the holidays and beyond. Your kids have a rock-star parent and they’ll always appreciate it,”
In another comment, someone said: “You’re Jonah’s hero, and mine, too.” “The UPS drivers in my neighborhood are professional, patient, and polite. And they work long hours.”
