What’s on your child’s Christmas list?
A shiny new bicycle? A brand-new skateboard? A video game that simulates physical activity?
How about a tiny robotic dog that never messes up your floor, or one of those dolls with the sewed-on button eyes that never blink?
What about world peace?
Whether their list be selfless or a tad bit selfish, or a mix of both, don’t let your child pass up on the opportunity to let Santa know their heart’s desires by publishing them in the Laurinburg Exchange. If you’re lucky, your little one might let you sneak in one of your wishes as well — like a North Carolina winter that doesn’t require switching your thermostat from air conditioning to heat in the same week.
Sure, you can send a letter via snail mail — but why stop there? Having your letter published in the upcoming special edition of the Laurinburg Exchange will only provide little ones with more certainty that the big man himself will lay his eyes on the wishes they hold dear.
Our special section, Letters to Santa, to be published Dec. 24, will also provide you with a keepsake to be treasured for years to come and an enjoyable read as Christmas morning nears. Clip out your child’s letter and paste in your Christmas album, right next to a photo with Santa taken at one of Scotland County’s many holiday events; put it in a book next to a snapshot of your child opening one of the gifts that Santa might leave under the Christmas tree or add it to a stack of material you’ll use to embarrass them when their first date comes to call.
The deadline to publish letters is Dec. 18. They can be hand-written or typed, but must include the child’s name, age, and grade in school. Mail them to our office at 211 W. Cronly Street in Laurinburg, or email them to Abbi Overfelt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We know Santa can’t wait to read them.
