Mom and dad please get scout a toy. Have a safe trip. Your friend, Dylan Dear Santa Another year has flown by. I hope that you and the Mrs. had the chance to sneak away somewhere warm for a much needed rest. I know that you are very busy throughout the year preparing for one special night and a vacation might be just what you need to get you ready. As you read through my student’s letters this year you might wonder if I’m teaching them to spell. I assure you that I’m trying. They are a very social group and get along great. I think that they prefer using their time talking to their friends instead of really trying to do quality work. Please don’t hold that against them when you are checking your list twice. For Christmas I told my students that I’d love coffee. I really enjoyed the bag you left me last year so you know that’s still a good idea. I don’t really have anything else on my list. You can’t slow down time, and that’s what I’d really like. I’ll make it my goal this year to make the most of the time I have with my loved ones. I will be leaving cookies and milk for you and some crunchy carrots to pass on to your reindeer. Please have a safe trip. Keep that seatbelt fastened and your arms and legs inside the sleigh while flying. Merry Christmas Santa! Love, Mrs. Hallquist

Did you know ... ? A few facts about the tradition of sending letters to Santa, courtesy of mentalfloss.com Originally, kids didn’t mail them – Before the Post Office Department (as the USPS was known until 1971) presented a solution for getting Santa letters to their destination, children came up with some creative ways to get their messages where they needed to go. Kids in the U.S. would leave them by the fireplace, where they were believed to turn into smoke and go up to Santa. Scottish children would speed up the process by sticking their heads up the chimney and crying out their Christmas wishes. In Latin America, kids attached their missives to balloons, watching as their letters drifted into the sky. It used to be illegal to answer them – Kids had another good reason not to send their letters through the mail: Santa couldn’t answer them. Santa’s mail used to go to the Dead Letter Office, along with any other letters addressed to mythical or undeliverable addresses. Though many individuals offered to answer Santa’s letters, they were technically not allowed to, since opening someone else’s letters, even Dead Letters, was against the law. (Some postmasters, however, violated the rules.) Things changed in 1913, when the Postmaster General made a permanent exception to the rules, allowing approved individuals and organizations to answer Santa’s mail. Even today, such letters have to be made out explicitly to “Santa Claus” if the post office is going to allow them to be answered. That way, families actually named “Kringle” or “Nicholas” don’t accidentally you plees?

have their mail shipped to the wrong place. A magazine illustration helped spread the popularity of letters to Santa – If one work can be credited with helping kickstart the practice of sending letters to Santa Claus, it’s Thomas Nast’s illustration published in the December 30, 1871 issue of Harper’s Weekly (left). The image shows Santa seated at his desk and processing his mail, sorting items into stacks labeled “Letters from Naughty Children’s Parents” and “Letters from Good Children’s Parents.” Nast’s illustrations were widely seen and shared, being in one of the highest-circulation publications of the era, and his Santa illustrations had grown into a beloved tradition since he first drew the figure for the magazine’s cover in 1863. Reports of Santa letters ending up at local post offices shot up the year after Nast’s illustration appeared. Newspaper used to answer them – Before the Post Office changed its rules to allow the release of Santa letters, local newspapers encouraged children to mail letters to them directly. In 1901, the Monroe City Democrat in Monroe City, Missouri, offered “two premiums” to the best letter. In 1922, the Daily Ardmoreite, in Ardmore, Oklahoma, offered prizes to the three best letters. The winning missives were published, often with the children’s addresses and personal information included. This practice shifted as the post office took greater control over the processing of Santa letters. Dear Santa I love you santa how are you. are you hapee santa. I mis you.
