Letters to Santa start in this week’s edition
Kris Kringle is getting ready for his annual ride with presents for good children around the globe in the next couple of weeks. But when jolly ol’ Saint Nick makes his trip with his nine reindeer, how does he know what boys and girls want, especially here in Polk County?
Santa Claus turns to the Standard Journal this time of year to help with that problem.
This week and next, we present our readers both locally and one in particular at the North Pole with our annual run of letters to Santa, and so far we’ve got quite a large amount of requests from youngsters in Polk County.
So we implore our good friend Mr. Claus to pay close attention to what children are asking for this year, whether it be a brand new Playstation 4 console, or a stocking full of Shopkins.
Additionally, we thank our local educators and parents for helping children make sure their message gets to Santa in a timely manner before Christmas arrives, and St. Nick is left guessing at what presents to bring to Polk County during his overnight ride.
Think your letter might have been left out this week? Don’t worry.
Any list Santa doesn’t get to see in this week’s edition will be included in the upcoming Dec. 19 edition as well.
