It’s time to put down that iPhone or tablet. Push away the computer keyboard. For this, you won’t need it. We’re going old school. Kids, grab a piece of paper and get out your favourite pen. It’s time to write your letter to Santa!!
Be sure your letter to Santa is mailed
BEFORE DECEMBER 11th
There’s something magical about getting that return letter from Santa. You got that feeling that the two of you were buddies. Like you could call him up and ask him to hang out, if you wanted to. I never did, mind you. But, I’m positive he would’ve said yes!
When I was younger, writing a letter to Santa was a week-long project. It had to be perfect and it had to include absolutely every little piece of information I could come up with. Christmas catalogs weren’t safe in my house. Mom and Dad had better have looked at that Consumers Distributing or Sears Wishbook catalog the day it arrived in the mail because I was about to obliterate that thing. At least the back 10 pages or so.
After skillfully crafting the perfect letter, my Mom would drive me over to Metro Drugs in the IGA strip mall, so I could mail my letter to my buddy, Santa. I never had to wait too long to get my reply.
When that letter arrived, man, it was the greatest day ever! I would pin it up on my wall and fall asleep each night knowing that Santa’s got my back on Christmas day.
