Let­ters to santa

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

It may be the sea­son for pump­kins and trick-or-treat­ing, but it’s also the time of year when we re­mind young read­ers about our up­com­ing Let­ters to Santa project at The Com­pass.

Though some of us may not want to ad­mit it, Christ­mas is just around the cor­ner. So hit the key­board and start tap­ping out those adorable let­ters to the man at the North Pole. It’s been a tra­di­tion at The Com­pass since the day we be­gan pub­lish­ing 45 years ago, and it’s as pop­u­lar as ever.

Last year, we pub­lished some 350 let­ters to Santa, and we are hop­ing for a sim­i­lar level of in­ter­est this year. Our first let­ter is printed be­low.

There’s a dead­line of Nov. 22 for let­ters and pho­tos ($6 per let­ter). For­ward by email to Shelleen (sem­ber­ley@cb­n­com­pass.ca) or by mail to The Com­pass, P.O. Box 760, Car­bon­ear, NL, A1Y 1C3. Email let­ters must in­clude pay­ment by Master­card or Visa.

Dear Santa, My name is Brook­lyn Butt. I’m seven years old. I’ve been ex­tra good this year, don’t you think? This year I would like a dou­ble stroller, change ta­ble for my dolls and a doll seat for my bike. I will have milk and cook­ies wait­ing for you, and car­rots for Ru­dolph and the other rein­deer. Please Santa, don’t for­get all the other boys and girls all over the world. Oh, and Santa, don’t for­get dog bones for Cas­sius and Molly. Brook­lyn Butt, Car­bon­ear
