Do Kids In New Hampshire Still Write Letters To Santa?
Every year when I was a kid, my sister and I would write letters to Santa Clause. We would each plead our case for being on the Good List, explain away our naughty behavior, send it off, and then pray somehow he would find it in his heart to stop by our house on Christmas Eve.
By the time my sons were born Santa checked his e-mail. So each year my kids would make their list...plead their won case for a visit...and send it off electronically. And while an e-mail is nice, I'm pretty sure in 60 years no one is going to discover an old laptop with their handy-work on the hard drive. And even if they do...it certainly doesn't have the same charm as this story.
According to Fox 59, the couple were remodeling their home recently when they uncovered a letter written to Santa Claus...in 1956. They found an envelope with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer printed on it, while ripping out cabinets.
Inside was a letter dated December 2nd, 1956 that began; "Dear Santa, How are you? I've been a good girl."
Fox 59 says they used Facebook to track down the daughter of the woman who wrote the 60-year-old letter. She says her mom wrote the letter on her behalf when she was a little girl. She said she recognized her mom’s handwriting right away and got really tearful.
Just curious...do your kids write letters to Santa?
