A 6-year-old’s acerbic letter to Santa is going viral after his mother posted the missive on Twitter.

NPR reporter Sarah McCammon on Sunday shared her son’s letter, which was a class assignment, with her more than 38,000 followers. 

“My 6yo Santa skeptic was told to write a letter to Santa at school,” McCammon wrote. “So he did….”

By Monday morning, McCammon’s tweet had been liked about 13,000 times and retweeted close to 5,000 times. 

The letter read: 

“Dear Santa,

“Santa Im only doing this for the class. I know your notty list is emty. And your good list is emty. and your life is emty. You dont know the trouble Ive had in my life. Good bye.

“Love,

“Im not tell you my name.”

McCammon, who took note of her son’s artwork on the letter -- Christmas wreaths along one margin and skulls along the other -- was careful to double back and clarify one thing.

“PS, the ‘troubles’ in his life? His brother,” she wrote. “Don’t call child services.”
