A little girl’s Xmas note to Santa takes on a devilish twist when a typo--which reads Satan instead of Santa--leads to it being delivered to the lord of evil in his fiery kingdom of hell.

Having never before received a sweet, complimentary, loving note before, Satan finds himself strangely moved, revealing a softer side that he instinctively tries to fight. 

This is the comedic premise behind Anomaly London’s animated Xmas short film, Dear Satan, showcasing the agency’s creative and production chops. Patrick Stewart narrated the short, which was written, directed, animated and produced by Anomaly, continuing a holiday tradition. Last year Anomaly London made the well-received short The 12 Days of Christmas--A Tale of Avian Misery.
