LETTERS TO SANTA
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 may not want to admit it, Christmas is less than two months away. 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 46 years ago, and it’s as popular as ever. Last year, we published over 380 letters to Santa, and we are hoping for a similar level of interest this year. Letters will also be published online this year in addition to appearing in our paper. There’s a deadline of Nov. 21 for letters and photos ($8 per letter). Forward by email to Shelleen (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by mail to The Compass, P.O. Box 760, Carbonear, NL, A1Y 1C3. Email letters must include payment by Mastercard or Visa.
