Deadline for Letters to Santa extended

E-mail Print PDF

The News-Telegram has extended its deadline for children to submit their letters to Santa through Monday, Dec. 17, to make sure all Hopkins County children get those letters emailed in. That will ensure they make it into print.

    The News-Telegram is again partnering with Circle E this year to help local children get their letters to Santa while helping raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation to help grant wishes to area children with life-threatening illnesses. Circle E will also continue accepting letters written to Santa on “The Magic of Christmas” forms published in the News-Telegram through Monday, Dec. 17.
    All Santa letters submitted to the News-Telegram, unless otherwise noted, will also be forwarded to Santa and collected for Make-A-Wish to send to Macy’s “A Million Reasons to Believe” campaign. The department store each year pledges up to $1 million to Make-A-Wish, $1 for each letter received. The Northeast Texas division of Make-A-Wish will receive credit for the letters collected by the News-Telegram.
    Because of the volume of Christmas wish lists forwarded by local children, the News-Telegram is asking that all other Santa letters be sent electronically by email or on the company website, www.mySS news.com, when possible. Letters submitted individually on www.mySSnews will receive a reply letter from Santa when a parent or adult’s email address is included.
    Santa letters may also be emailed to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . They may be submitted individually or by schools and other groups by typing (or copying) the text of the letter into the body of the email. No scanned photo files, please.
    As usual, Santa letters will be published in the News-Telegram throughout the month of December as well as in the special Christmas Greetings section published Dec. 24. Due to the time required to prepare these for print, the News-Telegram cannot guarantee any letters received after the Dec. 17 deadline will appear in the newspaper.
