Letters to Santa

Each year, Santa Claus designates The Daily Star as an official mailbox for children’s letters to him. The jolly, old elf also asks us to print the letters we receive. Following are the letters, reprinted exactly as they were written:

Hello Santa,

This is Violet. I am 3 years old now.

This Christmas I would like: Lalaloopsy Doll, Tangled Doll, a new backpack, Hello Kitty Piggybank, play-doh, hat and mittens, new snowsuit and boots, crayons and coloring books, and books.

I also like Toy Story, Star Wars, and Mimzy Rabbit. My favorite color is purple. 

My cousin Keyanna and I will be leaving cookies and milk on the table for you to eat.

Thank You

Your friend, xoxoxo,

Violet, 3, of Oneonta


Dear Santa,

This is your friend Keyanna, and I am now 6 years old and in the 1st grade.

I am asking for the books I had on my wish list at the Scholastic Book Fair. I would also like Mermaid Fins and a Mermaid tail....I think you forgot them last year.

I also have on my list: Barbie car, Disney DVD’s, Princess dolls...especially Ariel, art paper, crayons, craft beads, pierced ear rings, and pajamas.

There will be cookies and milk on the table for you to eat.

Bouncy House for my school....Oneonta Greater Plains.

PS. My cousin Violet lives with us now. Please remember to leave presents for her as well. Violet is 3 years old, and loves Toy Story 3, Mimzy Rabbit, and Star Wars. Please also leave  her a new snowsuit and winter boots.

Dear Santa,

I would like a book for Christmas. I would also like a ball and some art supplies. I would also like a doll for my baby sister, Emily.

  • April activities abound at Thanksgiving Home There were many April fool jokes played here at Clara Welch Thanksgiving Home on April 1. Some of us found our door name plates turned upside down or swapped with one from another door and furniture and objects were mysteriously moved around in our rooms. The dining room was completely transformed from its usual formal setting into a hodpodge of mismatched china and … horrors, plastic tablecloths and paper napkins. Each table was decorated with a different theme, Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Easter. Christmas carols played in the background. We suspect that Dee Bouck, of Personal Care and John Santello, Activities Director, were mainly responsible for this mayhem.
