ROCKINGHAM — Santa’s helpers at the Daily Journal want to make things easier on St. Nick by providing Richmond County’s Christmas lists early this year.

Children’s letters to Santa must be received by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 13 to be featured in the newspaper.

Some children ask Santa Claus for the year’s hottest must-have toy. For others, a job for Mom or Dad or presents for needy classmates may be their most fervent Christmas wish. From the sweet and silly to the serious pleas that tug at our heartstrings, the letters are an annual tradition that helps Richmond County residents get into the holiday spirit.

Classes from local schools, preschools and day care centers are welcome to submit letters along with individuals and families. Letters should include each child’s first name, age or grade and hometown.

Try to limit letters to 100 words or fewer to ensure the Daily Journal has enough space to publish all of the letters it receives.

Drop them in the decorated “Letters to Santa” mailbox in front of The Daily Journal’s office at 607 E. Broad Ave. in Rockingham or email a letter to wtoler@civitasmedia.com.
