Before we send them on to the North Pole, weíd like to share the wish lists of Chenango County children with you ...
This year, children in Chenango County wrote their letters to Santa Claus, and thanks to a partnership between the North Pole and The Evening Sun, Santa has agreed to let the newspaper publish letters from local children.
As of Monday, Santa had received a bag full from area children and he had responded to all of them. The following are copies of those letters exactly as they were written. Santa said he wants to thank all of the children who wrote to him this year.
I have been a good girl this year. I want a camera and a tea set so I can have a tea party. I will leave you chocolate milk and cookies. I will leave celery for the reindeer. I love you.
I have been a good girl and I would like nail polish and a necklace and a new baby for Christmas. I will leave you cookies and a carrot for the reindeer. I love you.
How do you go to all th houses? What are you called in South Africa? How are your reindeer doing? I have been very good this year. I would like a DS, Ipod and FIFA 2011. If I go to the North Pole will I see your workshop? What is your house made of?
P.S. Good Luck
