Letters to Santa
Area children lay out wishes lists
Placeholder Image

Every year, the Bryan County News does what it can to help local kids get their Christmas wish lists to the big man in red. And since we know Santa Claus is always keeping up with what’s going on in Bryan County, we’re printing some letters to him here, in hopes he’ll get the messages in time for Christmas.
These letters are from second-graders at Richmond Hill Elementary School. As proof of their authenticity, the letters are reprinted as they were written:

Dear Santa,
Ho! Ho! Ho! What do I want for Chritsmas? Jolly Happy Santa, I hope you have a jolly Christmas. Also for Christmas could you give me an Ipod 5. I’ll do anything. Its fine if you don’t. You can just (only if you don’t get me an Ipod 5) get me anything.
