NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — National treasure Dolly Parton knows this is a lot to ask Santa for this year - but she wants the jolly fella to know she still believes in the magic of the holiday.
In a "Love Letters" series posted in December's issue of Good Housekeeping, Dolly asks for peace on Earth and hopes between God and Santa, "we might have a really have a chance for peace on Earth and goodwill toward men."
"Santa, please bring lots of love, enough to heal this wounded world, enough to help mend our differences, enough to open our eyes to the fact that we’re all God’s children and we all have an equal right to live in this world together in peace."
Like many of us this Christmas, Dolly is asking for joy, hope and love this holiday season.
She also wrote she's praying for a COVID-19 vaccine. It was the superstar's $1 million donation to researcher's at Vanderbilt that help lead to the Moderna vaccine discovery, reports. say.
"Well, anyway, Santa, you do what you can. You be very safe this year. Remember to wear your mask, because you’re going to be going in and out of a lot of houses. And we’re still praying for a vaccine enough to heal everybody all over the world. Can you help us with that one?"
Dolly is full of Christmas spirit this year and is spreading joy for the holidays with her new "A Holly Dolly Christmas" record. It's her first Christmas album in 30 years.
She's also part of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this year as part of Cracker Barrel's float.
“I think we could all use a heaping helping of comfort right now. Nothing puts a smile on my face like sharing holiday traditions with loved ones. That’s why I’m hoping you’ll join me and Cracker Barrel for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade,” Dolly announced. “Even though we can’t be together in person, we can help keep your traditions alive as you watch from the comfort of your home.”
