Merry Christmas to all our readers and supporters. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and approach 2013 with a sense of renewal and strive to be a servant-leader to the least among us. I came across an interesting article in the U.K. Telegraph’s website that a ‘dad’ is the tenth most popular request from children.

Telegraph:  When it comes to Christmas, it might be safe to assume children will ask Santa for an extensive list of toys, games and treats.

But a survey of their typical lists for Father Christmas has shown many have more serious concerns, requesting “a dad” instead.

A study of 2,000 British parents found most children will put a new baby brother or sister at the top of their Christmas list, closely followed by a request for a real-life reindeer.

A “pet horse” was the third most popular choice, with a “car” making a bizarre entry at number four. Despite their material requests, the tenth most popular Christmas wish on the list was a “Dad”.
