The United States Post Office dead-letter department
receives annually thousands and thousands of children’s pre-Christmas letters addressed to Santa Claus asking for things.
After it was all over one year,
a single, solitary letter thanking Santa Claus was received.
Could this be one of the problems of this troubled world;
that people think only of getting – not giving?
Of receiving – and not even expressing their gratitude for that which they do receive?
~ President Thomas S. Monson
