Some unedited excerpts from letters sent by children to Santa Claus in North Pole, Alaska:
Why can't people know when your in the house? Can the reindeer talk? ... Can you leave me a sleigh bell off your harness please!
Please forgive me for my wrong mistakes. Me and my brother DO believe in you. We will have some YUMMY cookies waiting for you!
Every year more and more people stop beliveing and even though I am 11 so people laugh at me I still belive you. I was wondering since people are not beliveing if you could send me a picture of you and your elves. That will prove to all nonbelivers you are true.
I would like to get things for my family but I have no money. I was hoping that you can help me by geting them ... and just put my name on them so they know I am thoughtful.
I want a big bear hug ... I wish I could see you but I am allways sleeping ...
