Santa isn’t the only one curious to see what kids ask for this year.
Saint Nick’s helpers at the Anson Record want to make things easier on him by giving Anson County’s Christmas lists to the jolly old elf.
Children’s letters to Santa must be received by noon today, Dec. 7 to be published in the newspaper’s Dec. 21 edition.
Some children ask Santa Claus for the year’s hottest must-have toy. For others, a job for Mom or Dad or presents for needy classmates may be their most fervent Christmas wish. From the sweet and silly to the serious pleas that tug at our heartstrings, the letters are an annual tradition that helps Anson County residents get into the holiday spirit.
Classes from local schools, preschools and day care centers are welcome to submit letters along with individuals and families. Letters should include each child’s first name, age or grade and hometown.
Try to limit letters to 100 words or fewer to ensure the newspaper has enough space to publish all of the letters it receives.
The paper may also print select holiday artwork from children, from toddlers’ doodles to older kids’ more detailed pieces. Some art may also appear online.
Letters may be mailed to: The Anson Record, Attn: Letters to Santa, 123 E. Martin St., Wadesboro, NC 28170.
