Not News but Made Me Smile -Chimney Sweeps Find Santa Letter Lost for Decades

Ask a Question

I know this isn't news, but it made me 🙂

Also I can't believe it has survived, as the family who have lived there for decades have no knowledge of the writer. A little boy name Robert Crampton wrote this, they are hoping to trace him

When you were little did you put letters up the chimney for Santa? I did but I had completely forgotten about it until reading this.

They have found him,he is now 65, he wrote this when he was 5 and confirmed that Santa brought him what he asked for 🙂

That's what I thought, it's nice just to read something light hearted. They are going to give him back the letter 🙂
