Letters to Santa

Dear Santa Claus,

You have a great job because you get to fly and deliver present and put them in stockings and under Christmas trees too. I wanted to ask you how do you reindeer fly? What is your favourite food? Why do you where a red suit? Let me tell you when I was good at every birthday I went to I was good and I try to be nice to my brothers and sister this year for christmas I would really like that humongous house for barbies where you can listen to music and flush the toilet and it makes a flushing sound. I would like an elf too please.

Yours truly Melissa M.

I think your are going to say what do you want for christmas Well It’s hard to explain but I want a video camera. My mom says that it is ok. So I was wondering if I could have a real camera “please”. I wanted to ask you if you help your elves cut and make presents and candy for everyone? Let me tell you when I was good It was wen I went swimming. It was my last day of swimming and guess what. I passed! My mom and dad where really happy of me. They were so happy they took me out for dinner instead of having fajitas. I was really proud of myself. It wsa fun on the last day because I played basketball and I played the body part it was fun at swimming.

Dear Santa,

You have a great job because you can ride in a sleig with nine Reindeer. You can climb in chimeys, and your magical. You have a great job because you can eat a lot of cookies.

I wanted to ask you how many house do you visit in an hour? How many in a night? Are most people naughty or nice? How much would Rudolph eat in a day? How big is your factory? Is it bigger than a football fieald or smaller?

I was good when I let Evan use my pencil and I used it after him. I was good when Kyle snapped his mini stick I let his use it for the rest of the recess. I let Josh be goalie in mini-skickes.

This year for Chsitmas I would really like a DS, a pokemon DS game, and the new Airhogs helicopter, and a guitar.

I have some advice for your trip make sure you double check the list so you don’t give presents to people that are on the naughty list.

Make sure everybody gives you cookies. Make sure you feed the reindeer before you take off.

Sincerely,

Daniel

You have a great job because you are the most popular holaday ledgend whell reale ledged that is.

I wanted to ask you do you realy have actual magic? Could you please send me some pictures? Have you ever crashed on christmas night? How old are you? How do you go all around the world in one night?

I was good on December 27,2007 when Karoline (from my old school) was crying and today when my cat had some glass in her paw and I made her feel much better! When you are flying you should check the wether 3 times as much as you all ready do.

Sincerely,

Faith

Dear Santa,

You have a great job because every year on christmas eve you get lots of milk and cookies. Also you get to stay up as late as you want to give out christmas presents. You never hav to do chores.

I wanted to ask you want kind of materiels do you make toys out of? Do you get motion sickness when you fly on your sled? Why do you always wear red? Let me tell you about when I was good this year when I was good I was helping my sister because she was sick and I cleaned up her room. It helped my mom and sister.

This year for christmas I would really like, a DS, an I-pod. Build-a-bear cloths, a fur real friend pet, dog in a purse, Hannah Montana outfits and a wig, High school musical clock and tosys in my stocking!

I have some advice for you trip when you go for a landing on sand hills road. When you go in the houses you shouldn’t wear shoes.

Yours truly,

Christina Jantzi

Dear Santa Claus,

Thank-you for coming to my house every year. You have a great job because you get to eat free cookies! You get to fly high in the sky aswell. You also get to choose presents for everyone and have reindeer as well as Rudolph.

I wanted to ask you if you can come into my room and leave a present beside my bed? Can you put a piece of coal in my brother and sisters stocking but only one piece?! Do elves really, acually have pointy ears?

Let me tell you when I was good. I was good when I let my brother throw the football when it was my turn! I didn’t pick the home movie when it was my turn! I let my brother do a card trick before me. This year for Christmas I would really like. . . the Girls Gorment Cupcake Maker and the Little mommy Deluxe play-set. That’s all I’d really like though. Isn’t that weird? In my stocking I’d like two smurfs! I have some advice for you trip. Com to my house firt and back the way you travled! Make sure your reindeer are pumped up with carrots! Wear really warm clothes!!!!!!!

Sincerlly,

Delaney

Dear Santa,

You have a great job because you get to deliver toys to people that be good. You also have a great job because you know who was being good and bad. You also have a good job because you are in charge.

I wanted to ask you are you really real? Does Rudolph still lead your sleigh? Do you just get fat automaticly or do you just eat to make yourself fat?

Let me tell you when I was good. I was almost good last week because of my burnt hand. I was good and sad the Sunday before last Sunday because that was the day I burnt my hand. A few weeks ago I helpped my sister and brother.

This year for Christmas I would really like High School Musical 3 if it comes out yet and the clone wars movie. Also I would like a new PS@ game. I also want a remote control car.

I have some advice for your trip put rockets on your sleigh it will make the ride faster. Also dive head first because you will go down the chimney faster.
