‘Hello Santa: Would your reindeers like some carrots?’

Letters to Santa from the grade 1/2 class at Desert Sands Community School.

From Charlee Marlow’s grade 1/2 class at Desert Sands Community School.

Hi Santa,

Santa I would like to see your reindeer. I like to play in the snow with my brother Ezra. I am six years old and I like to eat ice cream, the pink kind with bubble gum in it. I wish for you to give people a nice house to live in with nice things. Can you please bring me a mini motorcycle? Good bye Santa!

From Ay Volaine

Hello Santa,

Would your reindeers like some carrots or would they like some chocolate chips? I like to eat Santa cookies and I like to eat chocolates chips. I wish that everybody in the world could have a family. I wish that I could get a Hatchimal from you. Goodbye Santa Claus and thank you.

Love, Jillian Fredrickson

Hi Santa,

Can your elves build whatever they want? What do you like to eat? My favourite friend is Yale and I like to go to the toy store at Kamloops. I want you to bring a thousand chicken noodle soups to the people that don’t have any food. Please could you bring me ten Battle Blades? Good luck Santa!

From Mark

Santa,

I Rudolph really real? Do you listen to Christmas music all the time? I am six years old and I like cookies. I wish that poor people had more food. I would like a purple camera and a robot that would do all my chores for Christmas please. My brother thinks he can have a pet reindeer, that is silly. Good bye Santa, I hope you eat lots of cookies that we will have for you!

From Malory Hedges

Good Morning Santa,

From James Johnson

Hi Santa,

How do you fit down all those chimneys? I like to play in the snow and I like making snow angels. I wish the whole world could have a winter jacket because it’s really cold outside! I wish I had my own rocking chair, could you please bring me one? My Mom used to rock me in a rocking chair and I loved it! We don’t have one anymore. Bye Santa, I love presents from you!

Love from Kiley Stoelwinder-Smith

Dear Santa,

I was wondering why you like cookies so much? What is your favourite kind? I am six years old and I like playing in the snow with my friends. Santa can you please give the people that don’t have houses a house so that they can stay warm. Can you please bring me a remote control monster truck? Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Hello Santa,

I am wondering how your reindeer fly? Also, how does the mail man deliver this letter to the North Pole? I lost my first tooth this year, and the tooth fairy came, it was very exciting!
