The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

The Christ­mas sea­son is just around the cor­ner and Let­ters to Santa are in fill swing at The Com­pass. Young read­ers sub­mit­ted some 325 charm­ing let­ters and beau­ti­ful photographs by the Nov. 22 dead­line and this week con­tin­ues the tra­di­tion of print­ing let­ters in our pages. The bulk of the let­ters will be printed in our Dec. 10 and 17 edi­tions. In this edi­tion, we shine a spot­light on An­drew and Gra­cie Mercer of Co­ley’s Point. For more let­ters, see Page B6.

Dear Santa,

Hi, it’s your lit­tle friends An­drew and Gra­cie Mercer. I am five­and-ahalf and Gra­cie is three-and-a-half. Mommy and daddy say we have been re­ally good this year. We want to thank you for all the great gifts you brought us last year. This Christ­mas I would like a tow-a-long trailer for my bike, a new truck, a DS game, and a sur­prise for me and my sis­ter. Gra­cie would like a toy puppy, some makeup and pa­ja­mas. Please re­mem­ber all the sick lit­tle boys and girls around the world. We will leave some milk and cook­ies for you and car­rot for your rein­deer.

P.S. We look for the North Pole star ev­ery night and know you are on your way! Have a fun and safe trip Santa. Love, An­drew and Gra­cie Mercer
