8-year-old writes to Britain PM asking if Santa can visit him
- "Monti wrote to me asking if Father Christmas will be able to deliver presents this year," tweeted the PM
- He asked the PM if Santa can come if he leaves a hand sanitiser by the cookies or will he wash his hands
- The PM wrote that washing hands regularly are exactly the kind of things that will get him on the good list
Monti, an 8-year-old boy from England, wrote a letter to the United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson, asking him if Santa Claus was coming this Christmas, reported Reuters.
In the letter, he asked the PM can Santa visit him if he leaves a hand sanitiser by the cookies or will he wash his hands? To this, the PM replied that leaving hand sanitiser by the cookies is an excellent idea to prevent the coronavirus from spreading and infecting him and the people around him. He wrote that washing hands regularly and using the sanitiser are exactly the kind of things that will get him on the good list.
In his letter, the Prime Minister also wrote that he has put in a call to the North Pole and can tell him that Father Christmas is ready and raring to go, as are Rudolf and his fellow reindeer.
He added that the Chief Medical Officer has asked him to tell Monti provided Father Christmas behaves in his usual responsible way and works quickly, there are no risks to anybody's health.
