A Redditor posted the note Wednesday, explaining that his mother taught fourth grade and the letter came from one of her students. The missive struck a chord with Redditors, many of whom recalled celebrating Christmas in school despite the religious backgrounds of different students.
"When I was in school everyone wrote letters to santa. Even the few jewish and muslim kids still celebrated christmas. Wasn't really a religious thing just a get a lot of presents thing," wrote one commenter.
"Aww man, growing up as a Muslim kid in America is the worst!! I spent years begging my parents for a christmas tree. I even tried to invent a muslim Santa who I named Eid Claus but that didn't fly :("
