We're looking to make a gallery featuring area kids' letters to the guy in the big red suit.
With Christmas approaching, many good boys and girls will sit down with pencil or crayon in hand to write out their wish list to Santa. These letters are always cute, sometimes funny, and we'd like to compile them into a photo gallery of our readers' children's missives to the big man in the red suit. So before your children send their letters to the North Pole, take a picture of the note with your digital camera or smartphone and upload it to this story by hitting the "Upload Photos and Videos" button under the pictures. A caption would be nice, too. Once we get a good amount of letters we will feature them in a gallery on the homepage. So, what do the kids want for Christmas?
Thanks to a very special U.S. Postal Service program, "Santa" will reply to children who mail him their Christmas wish lists this holiday season.
Every year, millions of children sit down to make a wish list for Santa, hoping he will make all of their Christmas dreams come true. But what if Santa actually wrote back? The United States Postal Service is now accepting "Letters From Santa," a program that allows any person to play Santa by sending a letter signed by Saint Nick to any child. According to a postal service news release, "The 'Letters From Santa' program helps parents fulfill the dreams of their own children." Instructions to send a letter from Santa: Kids can drop off their letters at the Post Office at 611 High St. or 280 Bussey St. in Dedham. TELL US: Do your children or children in your family plan on writing a letter to Santa this year?
