    I'm late to this video but my grandfather used to be a rural letter carrier in a tiny town in northwest arkansas. He is one of the kindest people I've ever known and I really think the kind of selfless service to the community a rural letter carrier provides can only be well executed by people with empathy and compassion. I don't know what my grandpa did with letters to santa, I'll have to ask him the next time I call him, but that story about letting little kids know their letter had been picked up by 'special reindeer courier' really touched me. What a sweet thing to do.

    At our house we also used different wrapping paper for Santa. We baked / ate / loved fresh cinnamon rolls each Christmas morning.
    Imagine that: Steve Carell is as normal as you and I. Love it. It really is the simple things.

    You know...Michael bought a really good gift for secret Santa....I mean I’m kinda just listening to this interview with my eyes closed and I guess I was dozing off thinking that I had gotten the mittens that Phylis made for him when he was leaving (yes I know I’m mixing up the episodes but I’m also dreaming) ...anyway the point is....I’d be happy if I got the iPod

    Even though Carrel probably knew the gift was coming from rehearsals, that amazingly thoughtful gift and his reaction still blew me away

    Steve Carell looks like that college professor your daughter has an affair with, and tries to bring home for Christmas break to meet you. That is the most uncomfortable holiday dinner ever.

    I always did the kids presents from Santa in different wrapping paper. My parents did it for us so I carried on the tradition. I honestly kind of thought everyone just did it. Also Littleton Mass hasn’t changed much from his description.

    All the international countries are warming their citizens not to go to America ! Because of the hate crimes & gun violence and racism ! Wow when was the last time in world history that foreign countries actually had to tell their own people not to travel to the greatest biggest country in the world ? The land of the free ? Wow - that's why I say the things I say ! It's totally unacceptable ! Enough is enough it's time to grow up !

Wake me up when you want to start accomplishing things ! Social media is unacceptable ! It's time to let go of that and start being a normal human being and speaking English ! The game is over ! Game of thrones style ! Donny won ! Sorry if you people are to proud or special but I don't care who what or where you are your gonna have to speak English ! Period ! He's funny !! I'm not allowed to get mail either ! Gotta ask Donny ! Just know this that someone is going to prison forever ! The rest of their life ! That was their choice !
