Santa Claus has an email address set up at the Chester County Independent to make it easier for him to keep track of Chester County children’s wish lists. He knows that these days it’s often easier to type an email than to mail a letter, and the Independent is working closely with him to help sort the wish lists of Chester County boys and girls. Children or parents of children too young to write may email a letter to Santa at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. on Dec. 11 in order to ensure that Santa has time to read all of his messages and to put the elves to work making toys.
Copies of the letters will be printed in the Christmas week edition of the Independent on Dec. 24.
There is no charge for publishing the letters to Santa; however, parents also may submit a photo of their child to run with the letter for only $10.
Santa’s email will allow the jolly old elf the quickest access to his Christmas letters, but he still accepts regular mail as well. Children should post their letters to Santa in care of the Chester County Independent, P.O. Box 306, Henderson, TN., 38340, or drop them by the newspaper office, 218 S. Church St., between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or fax to 731-989-5008.
Santa looks forward to reading each child’s letter; remember to get them in early so he can forward them to his workshop in the North Pole.
