I never thought I would write another letter to you, not at this age! It’s been 15 years since I last visited you at your office, in Rovaniemi. It was off season (July), when my parents decided to bring me to Scandinavia for the first time. Never would I foresee that one day I would be living here, quite close from you. So, I am looking forward to visit Rovaniemi again, this time without the Midnight Sun, but hopefully, with the Northern Lights!
You know I’ve been a good girl this year, but I don’t think I can ask for much! Last year, Christmas came in a bit earlier for me, when I got the job offer in Sweden (though, I don’t know why you made me wait for so long!). This year, well… Christmas arrived even earlier, when you sent me that wonderful package from the Netherlands (I am still unwrapping it!). Don´t tell me Christmas will arrive at my birthday, next year! We should stick to the dates, right? 😉
Since I have a nice job that provides me enough money to live a happy life, and a nice house facing the forest and the Northern Lights, I can only wish for good health. You know I have still 150 countries to visit, right? And next year, sounds it’s going to be a big traveling year, isn’t that so? Some of my friends also begged me to ask you for the lottery numbers. Do you think you can fix that for them?
It must be hard not being able to attend all the requests or answer all the letters, but there are certainly much more needy people than me. Take care of the refugees, poor kids and sheltered animals, throughout the whole world.
And last but not least, could you spare me a reindeer? I will try to learn how to ski or snowboard, but I fear I might be too old for that… And sometimes, there’s so much snow between my house and the office, that I would feel much more comfortable riding a reindeer. Plus, they are environmentally friendly, unlike snowmobiles! Come on, don’t be selfish, you have a big herd 🙂
PS – Since the mining industry is facing a downturn, in case it gets worse, please consider me for a job position. I already know the meaning of living in Lapland!
