UNION COUNTY — Christmas Eve is getting closer every day and that means the deadline for the children of Union County to send their “Letters to Santa” in to The Union Daily Times is getting even closer.

Santa Claus is the longest longtime subscriber to The Union Daily Times, having taken out a subscription when the paper began publishing in 1850. His favorite part of the paper is our annual “Letters to Santa” which gives the children of Union County the opportunity to have their letters to Santa published so the Jolly Old Elf can read them and find out what the boys and girls who wrote them want for Christmas. He then makes out that famous list of his and turns it over to the elves so they will know just exactly what to make to be loaded onto Santa’s sleigh and delivered by him on Christmas Eve.

For that to happen, however, the children of Union County need to write their letters, get them typed, and then sent in via email to The Union Daily Times by the end of Friday, Dec. 18.

Yes, that’s right, this Friday is the deadline for the “Letters to Santa” to be emailed to The Union Daily Times.

Since this year’s “Letters to Santa” was announced last week, we’ve received a number of letters from children in Union County, but we’re certain there’s even more out there so please hurry up and get them in before the deadline.

“Letters to Santa” is open to children ages birth to 5th grade. Preschool and elementary school classes are encouraged to submit their students’ letters to Santa. All letters must be typed and submitted via email to cwarner@civitasmedia.com by Dec. 18.

So please, get those Letters to Santa written and typed and sent in by the deadline so we can publish them the following week. This will give Santa plenty of time to read them, make out his list of the requested toys and other gifts, and then turn it over to the elves at the North Pole who are already hard at work making sure than everything is ready by their deadline which falls on Dec. 24.
