Santa has been watching to see who has been naughty or nice. He is anxiously awaiting Christmas wish lists from children! Youngsters may mail their holiday letters to Santa from the “North Pole Mailbox” located by the elevator in the Children’s Department. Santa promises to write back to each child if their name and address are included with their letter.
Due to Santa’s busy schedule, all letters must be received by Tuesday, December 17. This will give him plenty of time to respond and pack his sleigh for Christmas Eve deliveries.
