Times seeks Santa letters
In the times before internet and smart phones, the only way to reach Santa Claus was by letter.
This year, The Tunica Times is launching an effort to go back to the good old days.
“In the weeks leading up to Christmas, we’d like to run some letters to Santa in the paper,” Times Managing Editor Meg Coker said. “Of course, once we’re finished with them, we’ll send them on to the North Pole.”
Coker said the initiative is open to all ages.
“Obviously, kids who can’t write yet maybe have to have some help from Mom and Dad and that’s okay,” Coker said. “We welcome anyone who wants to participate.
“They are welcome to put whatever is on their Christmas list in the letter plus anything else they want to add.”
All letters should include the writer’s name, age and where they are from and should be addressed to: Santa Claus c/o The Tunica Times, PO Box 308, Tunica MS 38676.
Coker hopes the response will be tremendous.
“This will be a great way to get in the spirit and we hope to get lots of wonderful letters to pass on,” Coker said.
