More than 200 people submitted letters to Santa through a special red mailbox in Shorewood this year. After responding to each of the letters, Santa agreed to share some of the letters with the North Shore Now. Here are a few of our favorites from Santa's mailbag.
Before I tell you what I want for Chrismas I would licke to congragoulate you on 7 secesesful years of dilivering toys to me and all the other kids in the world. enough chit chat let's get down to bisnes. this yaer for chrismas I want a playstoin3 and lego star wars to come with it. I also want Pokemon cards. Last but not laest I want a bag of Prancks. Marry Chrismas!
My name is Niamh (neve), and I am 12 years old. I still believe in you even though my mom said she has been playing your role. So this year you will have to come to my house because my mom won't pretend to be you any more! I will set out milk, cookies and some vegetables or fruit for your reindeer! A few of my really big wishes this year are I hope everyone has a great Christmas. I wish for world peace, I wish that everybody knows the true meaning of Christmas (no offence Santa), and I also hope that friends of Bethany, the humane society and other charities get lots of donations. I hope that this helped, and that I will one day get to meet you!
Merry Christmas!!! I hope that you and Mrs. Claus are in good health and are staying warm in the North pole. For Christmas I would like silk long underwear, Lego Elves Queen Dragon rescue set, either Harry Potter chess or checkers set, Jessie's happiness. You'll notice that my list is short, but I don't want much this year, except to be happy.
Wishing you well, Emily
I grew up in China. When I was young, we never celebrated Christmas. And I read stories about Santa for foreign countries, I always thought it was a true story. After this new year I will be in my 30s. I really hope magic can happen on me once. I hope I can meet my Mr. Right and have a family together. Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you!!"
I love you so much, but your furry suit smells kind of weird. I am sure I was good this year. I hope you will bring me some good presents and some for my brothers and sisters too. Merry Christmas.
