Kids, write your letters to Santa!  It’s time to begin gathering children’s letters to Santa. Each year, we publish letters from kiddoes up to and including first graders. Although the majority of this North Pole correspondence is usually provided through the elementary schools, parents of children not in public school are also encouraged to send in their children’s wish lists. We’ll forward them to the North Pole!

The deadline to provide these letters to the Anvil Herald is Friday, December 5. Important: spelling, grammar and punctuation should be left as the child wrote it – that adds to the letter’s charm.
