Letters to Santa

With Jack Frost nipping at noses and the jingle of sleigh bells filling the air, the Standard Journal once again is hoping to inject a little holiday spirit into the season with its annual letters to Santa Claus.

Children from across Polk County have spent hours (or maybe just a few minutes) thinking about what they would like from jolly old St. Nicholas this year and some have even wished things for their siblings. Now that’s the holiday spirit!

This year has been one of change and adjustments on nearly every level, but one thing we hope doesn’t change is the hope in every child — from 1 to 101 — that Christmas will be a time for giving, sharing and joyful celebrations … and maybe a few extra toys under the tree!

Following is the first batch of letters received by the Standard Journal from local children and their classes, and officially forwarded to Santa Claus at his North Pole P.O. box. Another batch will be in next week’s edition and online at www.polkstandardjournal.com.

Merry Christmas and enjoy!

Dear Santa,

I would like some LOL Surprise Pets and some toys for my cats. And also some toys for my sister.

Love,

Dear Santa,

I am six years old. I have been a good boy this year. I want nerf guns, a nerf gun bag, costumes, a truck, Ninjago Lego set, army action figures, and army towers. I will leave you cookies and milk under the tree.

Love,

Dear Santa,

I hope you have a great Christmas. I hope I’m on the good list. I wish I could get a dirt bike, but if I can’t I would like a new bike, remote control truck, Collins Key toys and a new bow and arrow. I’m happy with anything though. Thank you for it all.

Love,

Isaiah Neal

Dear Santa,

My name is Macey Forsyth. This year since I’m a big girl. I want a vanity, makeup and an Apple Watch. I would also like some cowgirl boots and clothes. My brother, Jace Curby, wants the PS5, board games and race cars. He also would like a gaming chair. We have been SUPER nice this year!!! Most of all we want all of our friends and family to be safe and healthy. See you soon Santa, and your goodies will be waiting.

Love,

Macey Forsyth & Jace Curby

Dear Santa,

My name is Eli Gray Forsyth and I am 2 years old. For Christmas I want a “big truck” to drive my momma and family crazy with! I also hope I get some PJ Masks stuff because that and Blippi are my favorite things to watch! I have been really good this year and patiently waiting for my baby sister Riley to be born in January. I can’t wait for her to come! I hope you are good to everyone else on your list Santa! Don’t forget my tuck!!!!

Love,

Eli

Dear Santa,

My favorite movie is “The Christmas Chronicles” and the second one too. Do you speak Elfilge? And how do you not get fat from eating all those cookies in one night? I would like a berry blue controller and a PS5 if you can.
