Dear Santa,

Hello, my name is Kayla. I am 7 years old. I have 6 people in my family. I have a dad, mom, 2 sisters, and my aunt. I live in Brown County and I go to school there too. I have two pets. I like to do gymnastics. I like to do the monkey bars too.

Santa, is it true that you deliver all the presents in one night? Mrs. Claus is it true that Santa eats cookies every night? Are the reindeer fine? Is the North Pole cold? Santa, how is your job? When are you going to retire?

Thank you Santa for the Barbie dollhouse from last year. I liked it because it was so big. My friend Eva wants a new puppy. She needs it because she loves dogs so much! I would like to have a puppy as well. I would like to have one because I love dogs too.

Love, Kayla Harder

Dear Santa,

Hello, my name is Eva. I am 7 years old. I have 4 people in my family. I have a sister named Ella, a brother named Bo, and a mom and dad. I live in Brown County. My school is Sprunica Elementary. I have three dogs, some chickens, and two bunnies. My dog’s names are Sophie, Sargent and Macho. My bunnies’ names are Suzie and Hershey. My favorite thing to do when I am not at school is play, paint, and do science experiments. My favorite sport to play is soccer, softball and basketball.

Are you and Mrs. Claus doing well? Is Mrs. Claus making good dinner for you? Are the reindeer good? Are you cold at the North Pole? Is your job hard?

Thank you for giving me a TV last year because now I have a brand new TV at my house. My dog, Macho, needs a brand new chewy toy because when he is in his cage he does not have anything to play with. I would like slime because I can play with it a lot.

Love, Eva Jackson

Do you have a son? Do you sleep? Does Mrs. Claus cook for you or do you do the cooking? How many reindeer do you have? How cold in the North Pole? Do you like your job.

Santa, do you like living where it is so cold all the time? Do you ever like to visit the beach? Are the reindeer eating too many carrots? Will it make it hard for them to fly if they get too chubby?

Thank you for the cool toys you got me last year for Christmas. They were very nice. Will you please bring Nick a Lego City Beach set this year? Will you please bring me a Lego City Police station and a Thomas and Friends Super Station this year?

I have one cat but she ran away. I am hoping to get a new cat again soon. When I am not at school I like to swim in the summer and watch TV. I like run on the track.

Are the elves doing well? Is Mrs. Claus good? Is she sick? Is there such a thing as Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer? Is the North Pole cold? I bet it is! Is your job good?

Thank you for the motorcycle you got me last year. I liked it because it was fast. I want you to give Adrianna a phone. I would like to have a phone for Christmas. I want it so I can call my friend Adrianna. I miss her, she was at my old school.

Thank you for the Batman robot you got me last year. I liked it because you could open its legs and see all the wires inside. Will you please get Mason a Sonic the Hedgehog character for Lego Dimensions? I would like for you to bring me Sonic and Shadow characters that come in the same box.

Dear Santa,

Hello, my name is Liam. I am 6 years old. I live in Brown County with my dad and my three brothers. My mom lives somewhere else but I get to visit with her often. I like to play mini football, carve pumpkins, and color in my coloring books.

Do your reindeer really fly? If so, how are they able to that? Do they have rockets on their hooves? Do you and Mrs. Claus ever get into arguments about how many cookies you are allowed to eat? What do your elves look like and how old are they?

Thank you for the giant Nerf gun you gave to me last year. I like it because the battery lasts for a long time and I can play with it a lot. Could you bring my kitty a laser light so that I can use it to play with her? I would like to have another gigantic Nerf gun this year. Thanks!

Love, Liam Shand
