Santa reads letters from Fort Mill’s boys and girls

December 24, 2012 

It’s almost time for Santa to put away his list (we hear he not only checked it twice, but had the elves do background checks, just to make sure), load up his sleigh and get those reindeer in the air. Before his annual magical journey, we made sure he got these letters from local children.

Merry Christmas!

Dear Santa,

I have been a good boy! Please bring me a jump jump (trampoline) for Christmas. Love,

Levi

(Age 2, Tega Cay)

Dear Santa,

I will be 9 months old when you come to see me Christmas night so this will be my very first Christmas! I have been a very good boy this year and hope I am on your Nice List. I eat all of my fruits and vegetables at every meal and in fact, I like all my vegetables better than the fruit!

Since I won’t be quite a year old at Christmas time, I don’t need a lot and I’m not really sure what to ask for. I’m just going to depend on you and all the elves to bring me toys and games made for 9-month old little boys that will help me learn and grow.

Santa, thank you so much for all the hard work you do all year and I will be sure that my mom & dad leave plenty of cookies for you and carrots for all the reindeer.

Love,

Jacob Scott Knight

Dear Santa,

I am sorry I was naughty. Today, I was very good and I will keep trying to do better. Here is a list of the things I would like:

•  a super fast train

•  a motorcycle, dual catanas and really big nunchunks for my Ninja Turtles

•  a blue light saber (like Noah Hardy’s)

•  a Gamecock Football helmet, mouthpiece and uniform

My sister, Molly, is 1. Can you please bring her a dollhouse and new sneakers?

I will leave milk and cookies.

Love,

Daniel McCloskey (age 4)

Dear Santa,

Here is a list of the things I want. I am sorry for my bad behavior. My current behavior is nice.

I want a toy elf the most. I also want a Spider Man web shooter, a cool train, a small Rudolph and a toy boat.

I hope you have a great year. I will leave milk and cookies.

Love,

Andrew McCloskey (age 5)

From Mrs. Crabtree’s Kindergarten Class at Pleasant Knoll Elementary School:

Dear Santa,

Is it hot or cold in the North Pole? How are the reindeers feeling? My baby sister has just moved to a new room at her school. This year I would like to ask for a new Wii-U Mario T-shirt, and a Hot Wheel, and a Ben-10 video game. Thank you, Santa.

Love from,

Eric D.

Dear Santa,

How cold is it I the North Pole? How many elves work at the North Pole? Do you know a lot of kids names? This Christmas, I would like to ask for a Jack-in-the-Box, the Pop the Pig board game and a hot wheel. I hope you are doing well.

Love from,

Carter E.

Dear Santa,

How was your day in the North Pole today? For Christmas, I would like a pink pencil. Do you like living in the North Pole? My brother is doing well. I just want to tell you that our Christmas tree is up and I look forward to getting items in my stocking.

Love from,

Love from,

Adelle Vincent

Dear Santa,

I would like to know where your sleigh was when I saw you at the Lake Ridge Christmas party this year. Did you use magic to hide it? I would like to know if Rudolph is in the front or back of the reindeer line. I think the front. I would like to ask for a little Polly pocket with real hair, some shoes, and some barrettes and headbands for my hair. Thank you!

Love from,

Dear Santa,

Is it cold in the North Pole? Are the reindeer kept inside? Santa, are you giving presents to everybody? I would like to ask for a pack of jelly beans, some mechanical pencils, and new shoes. Santa, please give presents to a lot of people. Merry Christmas.

Love from,
