A fourth-grade Muslim student wrote a letter to Santa Claus after told to do so for a school assignment, in which the letter went viral after it was posted on Reddit, international news sites reported on Wednesday, December 12, 2012.
According to reports, it was the first time the Muslim student wrote a letter to Santa. However, unlike other letters to Santa, the kid did not ask for presents, instead, the kid thanked Santa for “spreading happiness around the earth.”
Furthermore, the Muslim student is also curious and asked Santa how he delivers presents to children around the world in just one night.
Reports said that the letter has caused some controversy as to why a Muslim child was required to write a letter to Santa Claus, a figure associated with a Christian holiday.
The daughter of the teacher who posted the letter on Reddit defended her mom, saying, “To my mother’s defense I don’t think the assignment was meant to be a religious one, and the student was given other options. However, she chose to write a letter to Santa and did so adorably, so I wanted to share it with you guys.”
