Amidst the millions of requests that he surely receives from children around the world, Santa Claus must really appreciate letters like the one written by Alfred Morris.
The Washington Redskins rookie and a few of his teammates recently attended a community event at Macy's where they wrote letters to Santa as part of Macy's "Believe" campaign. For ever letter submitted at a Macy's, the company will donate $1 to the "Make-A-Wish" Foundation.
While Fred Davis and Logan Paulsen both asked for a Redskins playoff berth (among other things), Morris hilariously and adorably turned the tables on Santa Claus.
Sarah Kogod of the Washington Post was at the event, and she recorded Morris's letter. It reads as follows:
I'm writing not to ask for a gift, but to ask you what you want for Christmas? You give every year and it’s your turn to receive, because it’s not always about receiving.
What a guy. This is the same player who still drives a 20-year-old Mazda to practice.
Unfortunately for Morris, "kindness" is not factored into Rookie of the Year voting. And Santa does not have a vote.
