It’s crunch time for youngsters. With Christmas eve only a day away, tots who just can’t help misbehaving only have 24 hours to redeem themselves. Plus, everybody who hasn’t already done so, will need to write and mail that all-important letter to the big guy at the North Pole.

It’s crunch time for youngsters. With Christmas eve only a day away, tots who just can’t help misbehaving only have 24 hours to redeem themselves. Plus, everybody who hasn’t already done so, will need to write and mail that all-important letter to the big guy at the North Pole.


Speaking of letters, Santa Claus has reported that Christmas requests have been flooding into the North Pole post office for weeks. As always, the jolly old elf has shared a few of the letters and artwork he’s received from Texomaland kids via special mailboxes.


Youngsters are becoming extremely specific on Christmas gift lists these days. Some letters included pasted-on photos of the actual items on the lists, just to be sure there is no confusion. Others jotted down prices in order for Santa and his helpers to budget more easily. Some asked for the entire toy store and electronics department while others requested just one or two items. Some insisted that Santa first take care of their brothers, sisters, parents and those less fortunate. A few waived the need for anything material but asked only that Santa help a sick loved one to feel better. The letters were as varied and creative as the young writers.


Below are just a few of the many letters local youngsters sent to Santa. Some are reprinted only in part and others in full. The exact spellings/punctuations were used.


Dear Santa,


Heads up. I’m almost 15 now and I still write letters to you. "Why?" Some people ask. Because if you believe you receive!


Sincerely,


Kirsten
