Yule Magic Wishes

Letters to Santa—Yule Magic Wishes
A simple holiday ritual for children of all ages.

2015 update: Yup, you can still make your wishes to Pagan Santa. But instead of scrolling down to do it, click here for the updated page. End of update.


Click on Santa to see that twinkle in his eye clearly. It is part of his magic.

Back story, unless you already know I’m one of Santa’s elves: Most of the year, I’m a vagabond shaman, traveling astrally, as a shamanic guide and talismanic artist. But come late fall, though I continue working as a guide long-distance, I retreat to the North Pole, where I create talismanic art to fill Santa’s bag a.k.a. my online Etsy shop. End of backstory.

This year, Santa gave me an additional job. It’s very special. He’s asked me to gather Yule wishes to him. I’m thrilled to be doing this, it’s very important work. And I am honored that he trusts me with it.

Here’s how to send Santa your wish. In a comment field below, make a wish or wishes to Santa. He’s a “jolly elf.” So he has the magic to grant your heart’s desires.

I will give Santa your comment!


Click on my Yule letter to Santa to see it clearly. Note that my wishes are not for Yule per se, but for the overall season. Santa loves to give.

And remember: He knows if you’ve been naughty or nice, so be a good girl or boy or gender-marvel or faerie or wolf or rabbit or dragon or girl-boy-gender-marvel-faerie-wolf-rabbit-dragon or whatever you are. Eat your veggies and play nice with others. I can’t wait to see your wish, and I promise not to get too proud about Santa giving me this big job.

Please post a wish or wishes now, before you forget. I don’t want Santa to think I’m doing a bad job. I really want to be a good Yule elf.

You can come back later to post more wishes, if you remember. Bring your children, for mystical pagan Yule fun.

But post now, because I want to make sure you get your wish(es)!

    Dear SAnta,

    Thank you for Francesca Elf, and SAnta, thank you for the merriment and joy you remind us all to practice everyday.

    I wish for 2015 to be my year of realization. I’ve been wiping the last residue of disappointment off, and getting really happy with me, and believing. 2015 is my year for establishing a financial footing, finishing and polishing a book I’ve been working on for a while, ( and the writing is really, really good) and on to publishing, re-meeting a special someone, or meeting new a special someone and establishing a happy relationship, and creating my body the way I want it. I know, the better I do in my life, the better those around me will do. I want us all to have more fun.

    P.S. I saw your picture. And you are very, very ( did I say very) very, very dashing.
    Thanks for having for such a beautiful smile, and taking such good care of the pearly whites.

    Thanks for a bit of fun.
    with kind regards, your (snow) bun bun barbie.

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Bun Bun Barbie, you’re so welcome. Thank YOU for participating in the fun, because it wouldn’t be fun doing this all on my own. I mean, what wonderful wishes you made! I love reading folks’ wonderful wishes, then getting to convey them to Santa. In fact, I’m going to phone Santa right now, to make sure he sees your kind compliments of him. ✨

  3. UnicornNymph says:

    Dearest Santa,
    I wish to thank you for the overabundance of the holiday spirit and the wisdom to stretch my budget to it’s fullest this season.

    I do have one request, but not for myself. I wish that my daughter could find peace and acceptance regarding her father. I have done all I can do, and now ask for help from you. She wrote a letter to you asking you to bring her father back into her life. Please help her and give her what you feel she needs.


    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Dear UnicornNymph, Santa told me to tell you the following: while he is working on granting your wish, he is also going to send you something special all for yourself, because your request is so lovingly selfless. Isn’t it amazing that, when we give and give, the universe gives back to us all the more? Blessings on your day.

  4. Julia says:

    Thank you so much for this message delivery service! What a perfect gift! <3
    Dearest Santa,
    As I consider what to wish for, I realize that the top of my list this year is a wish for clarity! Clarity moment to moment, clarity in my life's purpose, clarity in seeing truth and right action. Please and thank you!
    I also wish for greater courage in my convictions, and the discipline to do the work that is mine to do, for the good of all.
    I wish for continued health, peace, and joy for my loved ones, especially my kids, and continued health and further healing for myself.
    I wish for freedom from unhappy thoughts and limiting beliefs that hold me back from my best life and from gratitude for all the wonder I already have all around me.
    I wish for greater financial ease and trust in the universe providing me with exactly what I need.
    Thank you Santa! You are the bestest! XOXOXO

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Heh, “message delivery system,” I love that. I am a message delivery system, cool! Always wonderful to hear from you. Santa is working hard on fulfilling your wish, even as we speak. I love you, honey bunny.

  5. Jeanine says:

    I am wishing for financial abundance, a new home and deep peace. Thank you, Santa! 🙂

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Jeanine, hi! I’ve been thinking about you, because we talked last winter about you becoming one of Santa’s elves. Santa loves you! I’m sure he’ll help with your wish, let me know how it goes.

    Dear gorgeous Santy:
    Ive been out of the radar as i was recyling myself but as im a bit transformed already i have a few requests of ingredients to complete the proccess;
    Please send me a few big lumps of inner security…enough to calm my anxiety in intimate relationships..probably a bunch of secure friends will help too.
    A bit more income that links with mycommunity, healing and Tarot vocation…
    A massive sense of humour and a touch of poetic comedy to see the ridiculous absurd and fun in everything me included (me first)
    The ability to keep warm and kind for my clients, loved ones, pets and whomever is around…in the face of adversity.
    More magick…well, or the ability to see the magick everywhere and bringing magick everywhere
    Lots of steadiness…peace…health and good courses that are affordable to me.
    Send a big big cuddly hug to Francesca Too!!!
    Ps… i know is a big list…
    PS of PS. thanks for the kitten you brought last year…she’s soooo beautiful!

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Hello my dear, how lovely to hear from you. Thank you for having Santa send me a hug!

      I’m glad to know your disappearance was part of a rebirth process. Yes, sometimes we need to run away into our caves in order to renew ourselves. Please know you’ve been in my thoughts all this time, because you are so wonderful that I love having you in my life. A lot of the people I adore need to wander off now and again, myself included, but I don’t see that as bad or neglectful. We just are spiritual explorers.

      Santa wants you to know the list is not too big, because you deserve all that stuff. I want to add, if you haven’t seen this recipe, it’s lumps of chocolate. I know you asked for lumps of confidence, but lumps of chocolate can’t hurt the process, LOL: http://witchesandpagans.com/sagewoman-blogs/a-faerie-haven/chocolate-lumps.html

      lots of love, my dear, and lots of magic to you.

  8. Wylda says:

    I have very dear friend, soul sister actually who is attempting to get off of prescription pain killers. She is absolutely terrified but feels she needs to do this so her little boy can grow up with a non addicted mother. She herself watched both of her parents die of heroin addiction.
    My wish is for her to succeed at this really tough undertaking.
    Thank you so much.
    Brightest Blessings
    Wylda )O(

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Wylda, bless you for for making this wish for your friend, to help her in this really rough situation. I’m sure your love will improve your friend and her children’s lives. Plus, Santa Claus helps with addiction, because he is generous kind soul, like you! Blessings on all your endeavors.

  9. Allyson says:

    Thank you for this wonderful site! I love it.
    What a wonderful idea!
    Dear Santa,
    . I was lucky and able to buy my own house this past month! So I. hope for growth, happiness and prosperity for everyone!

    Love and peace to you,

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Allyson, thank you for your kind words about my site. I work hard on it, so your praise feels very gratifying and yummy! Santa told me to tell you that you will enjoy your new home a lot. Love and peace backatcha, from Santa and me.

  10. Wendy says:

    This is so magical, my emotions are on overdrive at the moment and this just moved me to happy tears.

    Dear Santa,

    I wish for my own cup to be full enough in the coming year that I can help others.

    I wish for the motivation to commit to making my dreams come true.

    I wish for continued and expanding abundance for my family.

    I wish for more moments of crystal clear happiness.


    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Wendy, santa loves you very much, he told me so. Your post is beautiful, heartfelt, and bewitching, it touches me a lot, thank you.

  11. Dear sacred Santa,

    Bless me with compassionate wisdom so that I may serve with healing magic.

    Help me live wildly with nuturant joy and ecstatic bliss.

    Keep my heart full so I can offer its sweet nectar to others who have run dry.

    Help me remember that we are all part of a living cosmos.

    Keep me aware that my body is intimately linked to Gaia, our mother Earth.

    Help me unwind, rest and celebrate the beauty that daily comes my way.

    Keep my vision open to the guidance that comes in dreams and is whispered on the wind.

    Help me through my mundane activities to live my life as a prayer.

    May my daily dance be in communion with your fiercely gentle heart.

    May my speech be a song sung in harmony.

    May my passions be my guides and my fears and angers my guardians.

    May love, pleasure, joy and sex be my tools of worship as you awaken me to my own divinity.

    May my life’s work support the transformation of our planet into a palace of peace.

    May I be cleansed of resistance to shining my light and following my internal star.

    May I gratefully receive support from my fellow angels on Earth and the subtle realms.

    May I be at home in my bones so I can hear the wisdom of my body.

    May I be strong enough to give my being what it needs to be healthy.

    May I trust the Cosmos is bigger than my worries and that Her love can carry me through any struggle.

    May I radiate with eternal gratitude for the blessing of my life.

    And may I make lots of money sharing my art and heart with the world

    Thank you. Abundantly
    Jenelle Leigh Campion

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Oh, Jennelle, what a beautiful prayer. Beautiful! I could discuss how much each line resonates with me on a deeply personal level, but I will just mention one thing:

      It is no wonder that you study with me, bc we are so alike. I am grateful for that, because it provides so much camaraderie for me. For example, the line about “support from my fellow angels on Earth” was awesome to read, bc you out and out call yourself an angel. You do not hedge the statement. It helps me not hedge about it. Yes, yes, yes! And it was also great to read because we angels on earth recognize each other, and we hang together, to support each others’ work. Thank you for being a fellow angel!

      • 🙂

        Thank you Francesca. I so enjoy being sharing angel time with you too.

        Most of this post was from a prayer I wrote for a zine being put together by the New Orleans Compassinate Radical Healers. They were looking for pieces exploring what being a radical healer means for each of us….and over the course of a few weeks I wrote this piece. I added the bit about $ cause that is the most tangible thing I wish for this next cycle.

        Hooray for inspiring each other!!
        Stay warm and be blessed,

        • Francesca De Grandis says:

          That is so interesting, because your wish had seemed to me a piece that had been written over time. And the closing lines about prosperity seemed like they were added later. Thanks again for being my fellow seeker. Hugs.

  12. Kimberly says:

    My wish is to be in the flow of abundance, releasing anything in me that blocks the flow and feel totally immersed in abundance!

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Kimberly, Santa is helping me with a very similar wish about a prosperous flow. So I know he will be happy to do the same for you. Blessings on your day, Francesca

  13. Karen says:

    Thank you Francesca for delivering this message to Santa for me. I wish for some real life in person like minded friends to spend time with and talk with about interesting and important things. I would also like the new year to bring opportunities to play music so I can share my gifts with others. Finally, I wish to know without uncertainty what my purpose for being in this body at this time is so that I can benefit humanity in some way. Thank you and God bless!

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Karen, Santa wants me to tell you that he loves your wishes and he loves you and he will do all he can to fulfill your dreams. Happy holidays!

  14. Francesca De Grandis says:

    2014. Dear Santa,

    May I be of maximum usefulness to my Gods and all my relations.

    May being of service remain at the forefront of my mind and actions.

    May my preparations to move home to California be peaceful.

    May the move and the now go so smoothly that it is mind boggling, just one big God-given flow.

    May my plans for the future be manifested by trying to enjoy fun and silliness now instead of waiting for fun and silliness to happen later.

    May my plans for the future be manifested by trying to be fulfilled now instead of waiting to be fulfilled later.

    May my plans for the future be manifested by trying to be happy now instead of waiting to be happy later.

    May I more than ever enjoy my beautiful home here, before I sell it.

    May my heart and soul remain open.

    May I live in the trust of wonderful things always being imminent, and always happening in the long run. I lived that as a child but lost some of it. For example, may I live in trust that the move to California is happening easily and beautifully, and that I will have a beautiful, wonderful, easy home and life there.

    Challenges I suffered and overcame taught me the power of the Tao, including simplicity and simple elegance. May I now learn those lessons more deeply, by not suffering.

    Santa, I send you love, thanks, and blessings!

  15. Chelsey says:

    I wish for the power to grant unresrticted wishes to anyone I plea as many times as I wish.

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Chelsey, I will tell santa your wish, but if you get it, you have to only grant wishes for good things, nothing naughty. 🙂

  16. Thomas Byrnes says:

    Dear Santa Shaman, we could use a whole lot of Peace and Love here on Starship Earth. See what you can do, old friend! Cordialement et Joyeux Noel, Chicot le Fou, le Duc fin blanc

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Thomas, Santa says to tell you he is working on fulfilling your wish—all the time. 🙂 He added that it is wonderful to hear from an old friend. Lotsa love, my dear, take care of you.

  17. Holly Soutar says:

    These are some great wishes. It seems that Santa already granted one of my wishes, which was to get the hard part done on a project that involved some elbow grease. I was feeling like one of his Elves! I came upon realizations, ideas and inspirations that helped me focus and get through -and my energy was renewed!. And now that I see Santa as a year-round kind of guy, my wish is that I come up some ideas for them, and in general, of things and services that might be useful, uplifting and delightful for people (as Francesca does). And having gotten this one difficult task done, I now know that I can do what needs to be done, and an idea of what it will take. Not with just these recent things, but in general. I also wish that my computer be fixed by Chinese New Year (in February!) and that I am calm and even enjoying the process. Also to work more with Francesca and heal an unnatural reluctance to get help!

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Yes, aren’t the wishes folks are making great? They have blown me away. So beautiful and heartfelt. I am smiling to hear Santa already granted one of your wishes—he is good to his elves!—and that it has inspired you, spurred you on. I pray to Santa all year. So does my friend Kathi. Come on in, the water’s fine! (I remember the conversation when I suggested you might be one of his elves.) Thank you for yr kind words re moi, that is nice of you, Holly, really nice. Big hug. Santa says he is working on fulfilling your wishes, and blowing faerie dust yr way to heal your reluctance. And he added that you have been a very good girl this year! I look forward to working with you, my dear Holly, it will be an honor. Blessed be!

  18. Francesca De Grandis says:

    Kathleen, how lovely to get to read your wishes right on the Solstice day! And a Happy Yule to you!

    Santa and I both want to copy your wish so that we can wish for it ourselves. Santa also says you are on his VERY nice list—your third graders told him to put you there … And so did I!—so you can bet he will give you yr wishes. Love you!

  19. Kathleen says:

    Happy Solstice, Blessed Yule, Santa and Francesca!

    Thanks for all the rich blessings of my life! My wish for the season, as I pause this day to rest and revel in the dark and celebrate the new light, is for more calm and peace, especially in my work. Let me feel my way to a better balance of work and art and home. Allow me to be of service as a teacher, artist and wife, in ways that nourish me instead of drain me. Let me be guided by the birth of the light this year and find my way to fulfillment.

    P.S. I’d also like some shiny earrings, new boots, fuzzy socks and a pretty new tablet computer!

  20. Bun Bun Barbie says:

    Dear Santa,

    I send you a heart full of thanks for your joy and jolly ways.

    Santa, I want a heart full of fun and appreciation for the new year. I want fun to be the focus of all I do this coming year.
    Also, Santa, I ask that you give a remarkable man, who I hold in my affections, ease and joy. He’s in Florida ( I’m writing you from Michigan) embarking on a new chapter in his life. I ask that you give him the ease that comes from not holding things so tightly to his chest, not thinking things through soooo meticulously. I ask of you Santa that he discovers joy and fun in his life, that he trusts these gifts. And most of all, that he returns to the belief that requited love waits for him..for us all.
    May we all take to heart that joy and fun and following one’s bliss are the truer companions in this wonderful adventure known as life.

    Kisses and Hugs, you rosy Santa, you.
    Dear Francesca Elf, thank you for the gift of this opportunity to express my heartfelt wishes to you and Santa.

    Bun Bun Barbie

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Bun Bun, you came to the right fellow to ask for fun! That’s why Santa Claus is in my pantheon, LOL. He wants me to thank you very much for all your kind words to him, and to say that he’s very touched at your concern over your friend and all of us. He will do everything he can to fulfill your beautiful wishes. I, Francesca, want to add my own Thank You: It feels lovely to be appreciated, truly, thank you. Happy Yule!

  21. Marlene Beth Snelling says:

    My wish is for abundant financial prosperity in all areas of my life! I also ask this for family and friends.

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Marlene, yay! You made a wish to Santa! And he heard it, so now just keep believing in him and yourself, and keep on doing the mundane footwork toward prosperity, bc belief coupled with footwork are the lucky combo. Great to see yr wish!

  22. Jim Fitch says:

    Hello Francesca,

    Thank you for being the wonderful and wonder-filled elf that you are! Thank you for passing these wishes along to Santa.

    Dear Santa,

    Please, may I ask for a year of positive transformation? I would like to be more present for myself, my friends, my co-coworkers. May I have a vision to draw me forward, providing the energy to take action and bring dreams into reality. May I have ears to hear, a heart to reflect wisely, and the courage to speak with integrity.

    Please, may I ask for wisdom for our leaders and great health for friends and family?

    Best wishes!

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Jim, You are very welcome! Thank YOU for your supportive remarks.

      You are so sweet, both in your kind words to me and your wishes to Santa.

      Santa and I meditated together on your beautiful wishes. (Yes, Santa meditates.) This is what we saw in meditation: Your wishes are so loving and heart-centered and honest that they are filled with their own magic, which will help make them come true. But we all need outside help. So Santa will sprinkle Faerie dust on your wishes,on Winter Solstice eve, to help your wishes along.

      Holly Happilies, Francesca

  23. Chelo says:

    Dear Francesca:

    First, Please ask Santa to keep you writing such fun posts and sending lots of bubbly chi/healing…it keeps me shinning!
    Second…please let me know that my familiar Kali who just passed is around lots of elves and he is warm and happy. (tears dropped as I wrote this)
    Third; Keep my readings, my healings and my magik growing and bearing yummylicious fruit for all.
    Fourth: Keep my relationship growing in love trust and intimacy as I feel strong and nourished when life works out between us, two complex, wounded yet warm and loving people.
    Fifth: Keep me safe. Keep sending these angel/people
    /dragons/wolves/things that help me get out of anything that would compromise my integrity my ethics and my heart openness.
    Sixtht:…Please for fun sake, dye your beard multicolor…

    Big hug from me and my inner child. Hi and horn rubs to Reinders.

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Dear Chelo, Thanks for your kind words, you are a such doll.

      Santa says you would be a great Yule elf! Your first job is to share the link to this page. 🙂

      Santa and I are very sorry about your loss, and he says Kali is happy in elven camaraderie.

      Santa also knows that your beautiful service to others and personal relationship will continue to grow, and he will help. As he will with all the other wishes on yr list.

      Except maybe the beard. He is gonna have to think on that one.

      I would love to meet you someday!

      PS: I saw the naught and nice list! Yes, you were good!

  24. Antoinette Herrera says:

    I have one wish for this Christmas: I want to teach English in Korea. Help me make this wish come true–please. My life has been in such a rut. I need a change.

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Antoinnette, I did not even have to give your wish to Santa. It was so heartfelt he heard it directly. He also saw that you shared the link to this page on Google plus. Which makes you one of his helpers, so you’re now an honorary Yule elf. I think he’s going to help you with your wish. He’s extra good to his elves! Blessings, my dear.

  25. cindy hunt says:

    My wish would be for me to be able to be the light for all people. The God/Goddess has recently given me this quest to fulfill. I’m not quite sure how to go about doing this, so I’m just remembering how i would like to be treated. I want people who choose to see the love of our Goddess flowing from me. So my wish is that people can see a little glimmer of light from me.

    Thank you love you !

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Cynthia, that is beautiful. Beautiful. Santa says he’s going to help you with that. And I want to share an excerpt from a prayer I wrote a couple years ago, in case it is good for you to say. But ignore it if it is not right for you:

      Keep my light bright
      that it may be a beacon—not a beacon to me,
      because I am too frail to carry anyone.
      But a beacon leading people to you.

      Here is the rest if you want to see it: https://www.outlawbunny.com/2011/10/11/two-poems/

      Much love to you, my dear.

      • cindy hunt says:

        Francesca, thank you for the beautiful poem , it is exactly how i feel , exactly what i was trying to express.

        you are truly a blessing,

        • Francesca De Grandis says:

          Aw, Cindy, thank you for such kind words. And you truly are a blessing yourself. Thank you.

          You are not alone, wanting to be a light.
          Many of us shine
          shoulder to shoulder with you.
          Even if you never meet us.
          We’re a constellation of stars.
          Each stellar luminescence
          brightens all other stars in the sky.
          Despite storm and clouds,
          our combined glow permeates Gaia.

          No effort to love is alone.
          All love is supported by immense love.

          Stardusted traveler,
          thank you for shining next to me.

  26. Dee Romesburg says:

    I would like some courage, please. Courage to write and not think I’m not good enough. Courage to meet new people. Courage to speak my mind. Courage to live on my own terms.

    Thank you and Much Love.

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Dee, I gave your wish to Santa, and he gave me a message for you. He said that you already show courage, by your willingness to reach out and ask for his help. And that act of courage will help the courage he is sending you grow and grow and grow. Blessed be.

  27. Kestril Trueseeker says:

    I am going to be a greedy child and make several wishes!

    -I want time to write. Related to that, I want to be brave enough to just write as I’m inspired and not second guess myself either. Because when I get scared, I procrastinate and then I – guess what – waste time.

    – I want all my friends to have some moments of peace this season. Something that makes them go “aah!”, sigh happily and really enjoy the moment, even if it’s brief.

    – Can I have at least one of those moments too?

    -I want to know Faye and Mike are OK in the Summerlands. I know they can’t come back and I know I need to be patient, but I want to know they’re doing well.

    – I want time to play. It doesn’t have to be a lot.

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Kestril, I gave Santa yr wishes, and he said, “What good wishes!” I am sure he will help you see that your beloved are ok in the Summerland. And thank u for wishing me peace this season, goddess bless you for that. Love you.
