It is part of the sweet Christmas tradition for children across the world, penning a festive wish list to Santa, hoping they are not on the naughty list.
While most youngsters do everything to keep on Santa's good side, one schoolgirl has torn up tradition and used her festive wish list to issue Father Christmas with an ultimatum: gifts or he gets it.
Demanding Mekeeda Austin (13) warned Father Christmas that he will be "killed" if he fails to deliver at least two of her long list of lavish gifts.
She even threatened to "hunt down" Santa's reindeer and "cook them and serve their meat to homeless people on X'mas day if she doesn't get her way".
Her mother Tracey Austin, was dumbstruck when she found the demanding note in her daughter's school bag.
In the letter Mekeeda, from Brickhill, Bedford, demands a Blackberry, a designer Laura Knitted 33 Jumper, money, Converse trainers and sunglasses.
As well as gifts Mekeeda also demands Father Christmas bring her 'the real' Justin Bieber and teenage singer Austin Mahone.
She signs off with the chilling warning: "Remember...two of these, or you die."
But her mother Tracey is not punishing her for the letter and has vowed to meet her daughter's demands saying, "You don't want to get on the wrong side of Mekeeda."
She said: "When I first found the letter I thought it was funny, now I think I better get her what she wants, the last thing I want is for her to kill Santa. I know it sounds like she is spoilt but I like to get my daughter what she wants also you don't want to get on the wrong side of her."
And Mekeeda doesn't seem to have any problem with being put on Father Christmas' naughty list.
She said, "I was angry because I thought I wasn't going to get all the presents I wanted this year. Even though my mum found the note I still think I will get most of the things I want."
And stay-at-home mother Tracey says she will endeavour to deliver all the presents, even though she suspects Mekeeda will lose the Blackberry.
She said, "She loses phones constantly, so I know the Blackberry won't be in her possession for long, but she will be furious if she doesn't get one."
