Our Christmas Wishes


Our Christmas Wishes

Fifth & Sixth Class, Newmarket Boys NS


Dear Santa,

My Christmas wish this year is that the homeless people around Ireland and foreign countries can have a warm meal this year and presents from you. Also, I would like if people in hospitals can get the medical attention they need and help them make a full recovery this Christmas. Furthermore, I would like some presents to go to charities for the homeless and the Hope Foundation and other great charities around Ireland and other countries.

This is my Christmas wish this year.

Merry Christmas!

Shane Doody 5th class



Dear Santa,

My Christmas wish for this year is that my family and I could work in unison to make our house and the surrounding area look vibrant with the colours of Christmas. There could be little reindeers in the yard with Santa looking over them checking that they are having fun and helpful little elves by Santa’s side. There could be Christmas lights in every tree to make it look effervescent. I wish that we could have different colours of tinsel hanging all over the house. I wish that we could have various different colours and shapes of baubles all across the tree to give our house that magical, Christmas feel. I would love if there could be Christmas lights on every wall to get us all in the Christmas mood. I wish that we could have a Christmas tree that could be as tall as the ceiling with as many branches as possible on it so we could decorate it with Christmas trinkets; it could be the most beautiful tree in all of Cork! I would love if there could be a Holy Angel on top, to remind us that Christmas is really all about the birth of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

However, my most important wish is that I could spend quality time with my loving family as between school and work we don’t really get to sit down by the table and tell each other about what has been happening in our lives and they are my favourite people in all the world.

Rory Lynn, 6th class




Dear Santa

This year my Christmas wish is that young kids who have no homes or kids that are fostered get gifts like all the other kids around the world and put a smile on their faces. I hope people who are sick or are in hospital will be able to have a lovely Christmas like use all. I hope teachers, people who work hard all year and last but not least the people of the community have a lovely Christmas.


Gavin Fleming, 5th class



Dear Santa,

Hope you have had a great year. I hope globe warming has not affected the North Pole. I think I am growing up and learning to behave. During the year I cannot name all the good things I have done but there are still a few problems. This year, along with getting presents, I have a few wishes to make. I want the less fortunate to receive their presents first. I would like to see every child with a smile on their face. I would like the less fortunate to have a roof over their head. I would like everyone, either working or staying in hospitals, to be safe at Christmas. I wish that everyone will have something to eat or drink. For myself, could we please have a white Christmas here in Ireland?!

Eoin Goggin, 5th class




Dear Santa,

This year my Christmas Wish is that you could give a present to a poor child who does not have as much as I do.  Many other children and I have all the things we could ask for. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case for some kids. Some have no toys or even a home. So Santa, my Christmas Wish is that you could give a present to a poor child and put a smile on their face this Christmas.

Kevin Daly, 6th Class




Dear Santa,

This year my Christmas wish is to get presents and to have a great Christmas overall. However, I also want the less fortunate people to have a great Christmas too. These people are homeless and orphans. I would love to see them all happy at Christmas as they have tough lives. I hope they all have plenty of food to eat and can experience a Christmas to remember, with toys to play with. Most people don’t know how lucky they are compared to the less fortunate people all around the world.

Cathal O Riordan, 5th Class




Dear Santa,

My wish for Christmas is that the children, who live in orphanages, will get adopted and I wish that people who are fighting in wars will survive. I wish that the homeless families will find a hotel to stay in and have a lovely Christmas. I wish for a White Christmas with plenty of snow so that my Dad Chris and I could make a snowman and play chess. If I get a LEGO Star Destroyer from you he could also make it with me. My sister Ella wants a Qurio and can you please give one to her because that would be great (please keep this a secret!)

Charlie Saville, 5th class



Dear Santa ,

For Christmas I wish that the homeless will have food, presents and warmth. I hope people that have lost family members will be ok over the Christmas. I hope they will not be too sad.

I also hope that you can bring me a Farming Simulator 17 Steering Wheel. My brother would like to get a PS4 and my sister would like a doll. That is all I want for Christmas.

Enjoy the festive season!

Conor Kelly, 5th class




Dear Santa,

I have just two wishes this year. My first wish is, if you have time, would you please stop by every refugee camp and orphanage and give them the finest toys that could be made such as pool tables, plastic dolls, some board games and electrics like phones and consoles and also video games for them to play on the consoles.

For me, I would love if you could get me a Lenovo tablet. But can I give you a bit of advice? Do not tie it up loose in your bag because if you do it might hit off the chimney and chip the tablet – that would be a disaster!

Brion O’ Keeffe, 5th class




Dear Santa,

For Christmas I want it to snow because it has not snowed in years. I think a lot of people would like it to snow to. My two brothers want it to snow too! My other wish is that the children who have no families will have some people to care for them this year, by giving them food and presents.

Oran Moynihan, 6th Class





Dear Santa,

This Christmas I want it to be the best yet. I wish I could get a PS4 and Fifa 17 and 18. The only reason I want it is because my x-box360 is old and GameStop don’t sell any games for it. I wish I can give some of my old toys to charity. I also wish that my family will be nice to each other and that we can sit on the couch by the fire eating sweets and watching Christmas movies. Also, there is one more thing I really want – please make this year a white Christmas!

Cillian Saville, 5th Class



Dear Santa,


My Christmas for this year,

Is to sing a song for all to hear,

I’ll play my guitar, and I’ll sing with my heart,

Now that’s how I’d like my Christmas to start


Joe McAuliffe, 6th Class




Dear Santa,

This Christmas I want most of the injured and ill to be able to come out of the hospital in time for Christmas and for all families around the world to spend quality time together in front of the fire

Colin O’ Leary, 5th class.



Dear Santa,

My Christmas Wish is to go to England to see my cousins who live in London. Their names are Anne, Ryan, Glenn, Zoe. The others are Pat, Cian and Saoirse. Anne got a new dog and he is a German Shepherd. Pat already has a dog. The last time I met them was two or three years ago.

This is my Christmas Wish

Anthony O Donovan , 5th class.



Dear Santa,

My Christmas wish this year is to get many gifts such as Zombie Island 2, Bluetooth wireless headphones in the colour  white, a Territorial Blues jersey and also Assassins Creed Origins .I also have another wish – that all the less fortunate people around the world will have a good Christmas, spending time with their families.

Aidan Buckley, 5th Class



Dear Santa,

I hope this Christmas all the less fortunate families around the world will be able to spend time together and receive all the presents they asked Santa Claus for.

Jack Moynihan, 6th Class




Dear Santa,

My Christmas wishes are that all the homeless people will get a hotel or a B&B to stay in, a white Christmas with lots of snow, I wish to spend as much time with my family and to cook Christmas dinner with my Dad.

Dara Weathers, 5th Class




Dear Santa,

My Christmas wish is to sit down with my family, eat a Terry’s Chocolate Orange and watch Christmas movies such as Home Alone, Miracle on 23rd street and Elf. I hope for a tasty Christmas dinner. I want all the sick children who need medical attention to get the help they need.

(I would also appreciate a LEGO TITANIC)

Ben Walsh, 6th Class




Dear Santa,

My Christmas wish this year is to do the one thing that makes Christmas what it is; sitting down in front of the warm, crackling fire while snow is falling outside, watching Christmas movies and exchanging gifts with my family, eating chocolates and not having breakfast until 2pm. This is a recipe for a joyful Christmas in my family, and I hope for everyone else to enjoy Christmas as much as I do, no matter who they are or what they’re doing. In my opinion, everyone, including the homeless and the hungry, should have a chance to enjoy this wonderful holiday.

Calum Cronin, 5th Class




 This year my Christmas wish is for a beautiful, white Christmas for all my friends and family to have fun in.

I also wish that the homeless are kept warm and have food to eat.

My third wish is that all the kids will get what they asked for this Christmas.

My final wish is that all the unhealthy and sick people get better and be able to celebrate this Christmas with their families.

Aidan Higgins, 5th class




Dear Santa,

This year I want it to snow so I can play in it and have a snowball fight with my sister. What I want most for Christmas is to not get bored by twelve o’clock because most of the time I’ll end up sitting down and watching television. I also want a say in the decorations because my mom and sister don’t give me a say every year!

                                                                            Graham Cottrell, 6th Class


Dear Santa,

This year, my Christmas wish is that I will enjoy myself over the holidays with my family. I wish that families who are less fortunate than me will also have a great Christmas and for those who are homeless to have a roof over their head. If you have a chance, please stop at an orphanage or refugee camp and deliver presents to some poor kids. My final wish is that it will snow this year because it hasn’t snowed for a few years. In my opinion the most magical part of Christmas is when it snows.

Ronan Brosnan, 5th class




I hope I get what I asked Santa for this Christmas; a Lamborghini car, an Elf on the Shelf, an Nintendo Switch and a PS4. I wish that my dog gets a lovely bed to sleep on, treats and a Christmas hat. For my fish, a big bowl with a filter and rocks.

I wish that the kids with no homes get a place to stay and that everybody who is in hospital gets a present.

Christian Barry, 5th Class



Dear Santa,

My Christmas Wish this year is that the poorer people in the world get what they want. I hope to spend a happy Christmas with my family, sitting down in front of the fore, watching movies and eating sweets. I hope we have a nice Christmas dinner. I would love to receive a desk this year.

Eoin O Driscoll, 5th Class
