Absolutely Charming 100-Year-Old Letter To Santa Found In Chimney

While installing central heating in his Dublin, Ireland home, John Byrne found a letter to Santa Claus written in 1911 by two children, 10-year-old Hannah Howard and her 7-year-old brother Fred. The children placed the letter on a shelf inside their fireplace, and miraculously it remained there for decades and was only slightly burned. In the letter Hannah writes, "I want a baby doll and a waterproof with a hood and a pair of gloves and a toffee apple and a gold penny and a silver sixpence and a long toffee." Sadly, if people of the future find our letters they won't be half as lovely, since we usually asked for stuff like Skip-It and Totally Hair Barbie.
