Christmas Letter...

Little Billy came into the kitchen where his mother was making dinner. Christmas was coming up and he thought this was a good time to tell his mother what he wanted.

"Mom, I want a bike for Christmas."

Little Billy was a bit of a trouble maker. He had gotten into trouble at school & at home. Billy's mother asked him if he thought he deserved to get a bike for Christmas.

Little Billy, of course, thought he did. Billy's mother, being a Christian woman, wanted him to reflect on his behavior over the last year and write a letter to God & tell him why he deserved a bike for Christmas.

Little Billy stomped up the steps to his room and sat down to write God a letter.

LETTER 1:

Dear God, I have been a very good boy this year and I would like a bike for Christmas. I want a red one.
Your friend, Billy

Billy knew this wasn't true. He had not been a very good boy this year, so he tore up the letter and started over.

LETTER 2:

Dear God, This is your friend Billy. I have been a pretty good boy this year, and I would like a red bike for Christmas.
Thank you, Billy

Billy knew this wasn't true either. He tore up the letter and started again.

LETTER 3:

Dear God, I have been an OK boy this year and I would really like a red bike for Christmas.
Billy

Billy knew he could not send this letter to God either, so he wrote another letter.

LETTER 4:

Dear God, I know I haven't been a good boy this year. I am very sorry. I will be a good boy if you just send me a red bike for Christmas.

Thank you, Billy

Billy knew, even if it was true, this letter was not going to get him a bike. By now, Billy was very upset.

He went downstairs and told his mother he wanted to go to church. Billy's mother thought her plan had worked because Billy looked very sad.

"Just be home in time for dinner," his mother said.

Billy walked down the street to the church and up to the altar.

He looked around to see if anyone was there.

He picked up a statue of the Virgin Mary.

He slipped it under his shirt and ran out of the church, down the street, into his house, and up to his room. He shut the door to his room and sat down with a piece of paper and a pen. Billy began to write his letter to God.

LETTER 5:

I'VE GOT YOUR MAMA. IF YOU WANT TO SEE HER AGAIN, SEND THE BIKE

Signed,

YOU KNOW WHO
