Letters to Santa being accepted

E-mail Print PDF

The News-Telegram will once again partner with Circle E 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.

Because of the volume of Christmas wish lists forwarded by local children, the News-Telegram is asking that Santa letters be sent electronically by email or on the company website, www.mySSnews.com, when possible.

Circle E will accept letters written to Santa on "The Magic of Christmas" forms published in the News-Telegram. The form will be published nine times in the News-Telegram, starting Nov. 27 through Dec. 11. All letters should be addressed to Santa at the North Police and placed in the designated North Pole mailbox at Circle E or in the designated mailbox at the New-Telegram office, 401 Church St., no later than Dec. 14. 

Santa letters may 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 in text format) the letter into the body of the email.

Children may submit their Santa letters individually in the Santa letter form at www.myssnews.com. Just click on the Send a Letter to Santa link on the menu above (http://www.myssnews.com/send-a-letter-to-santa.html). By doing so, the child will receive a reply message from Santa if they include an adult’s emai address.

The News-Telegram and Echo Publishing want to make sure every child’s letter gets to Santa on time. All Santa letters are due no later than Tuesday, Dec. 17.

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 in the weekend edition Dec. 21-22. Due to the time required to prepare these for print, the News-Telegram cannot guaranty any letters received after the Dec. 17 deadline will appear in the newspaper.

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, which includes Hopkins County, will receive credit for the letters collected by the News-Telegram.

Echo Publishing, parent company of the News-Telegram, has also been in contact with Santa, who is making a special appearance to allow children to whisper their wishes to him just before the parade. Santa will be on hand from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Echo Publishing offices, 401 Church St. Echo will take free pictures so children can take the photo with them as a keepsake of their visit with Santa.
