Tuesday is deadline for News-Telegram Santa letters

E-mail Print PDF

    The News-Telegram will be accepting Santa letters through Tuesday, Dec. 17. This will allow staff plenty of time to get all of the youngsters’ Christmas wishes prepared and sent on to Santa before the holiday.

    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, when possible.
    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 the letter directly into the body of the email or copying the typed information in text format into the body of the email.
    Children may submit their Santa letters individually in the Santa letter form on www.myssnews.com. By doing so, the child will receive a reply message from Santa if they include an adult’s email address. To submit a letter online, simply click “SEND A LETTER TO SANTA,” listed directly under “Home” and “News-Telegram” on the main menu bar — found just under the red “my,” green “SSnews” and blue “.com” circles.
    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 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 serves Hopkins County, will receive credit for the letters collected by the News-Telegram.
