Lindbergh students tell Santa Claus what they want this year

Originally Published on: Dec. 19, 2012

Fourth-graders at two Lindbergh elementary schools — Concord and Long — wrote the following letters to Santa Claus:

Dear Santa,

Merry Christmas. I’ve been a great girl this year, I think. I have a few questions for you and your elves. How do you get into houses if they don’t have a chimney?

Have I been good this year? How do your elves make so many toys so fast? I am hoping to get a few gifts this year. Here is my list: Password Journal, a scary Monster High doll and a surprise. Travel safely.

A great girl, Emma

Dear Santa,

Happy holidays. I have been wonderful this year. I am hoping to get a lot of presents this year. Here are a few: iPad or Kindle, iPhone, American Girl doll clothes, planting set and an elf. Travel safely.

Best wishes, Madison

Dear Santa,

Merry Christmas. Do not mistake me for a different Kath-erine because I have been very nice. Here is my short list: Magic Wings, candy, Floam, food, rabbit and Chuck E. Cheese coins. And by the way, I have (some tips on) Magic Wings. Make a pair of regular wings. Then sprinkle them with everlasting reindeer dust. Have a safe ride.

A very good girl, Katherine

Dear Santa,

Merry Christmas. I just wanted to say a few words: First off, I really am nice to my family. Second, I wanted a Lego Batman’s Batcave. Third, I hope I go to sleep at nine on Christmas Eve. Last, I always get stressed out if it’s 11 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Happy New Year.

Your friend, Benny

Dear Santa,

I have been good this year. I would like a few things for Christmas. I would like some action figures, toy cars, cheese bat, T-shirts. I have lots more, but they will not fit.

Oh, what will you want for Christmas? Merry Christmas.

From, Xander

Dear St. Nick,

I have been in between naughty and nice this year, but, of course, you already know that. I will try to take your word, help mom and ignore my “stinky” older brothers.

Thank you for the advice. I have a couple of things I am hoping for — a painting kit, a baby tree, a pair of skates, an elf and forgiveness from all. Thank you. I will try to be more holy in God-safe travels.

Love, Katherine

Dear Santa,

I hope I’ve been very good this year. So can I have: soda, baby sister, iPad, iTunes gift card, money, candy, scary book, fake poop, rabbit.

A good boy, Matthew

Dear Santa,

Merry Christmas. Hi, I’m Sadie, not Sady. I have been very incredible this year. I would like a few things for Christmas and here is my list: the American Girl doll kit, a helicopter that’s on remote control and all of the kit’s accessories. Have a very merry Christmas.

Sincerely, Sadie

Dear Santa,

I want Legos. Merry Christmas. Be careful because I don’t have a chimney. My mom might bring you a key.

One more thing, I live at two places, so you can bring me lots of Legos.

From, Michael

Dear Santa,

Are the elves working hard? Do you still like milk and cookies? How are Mrs. Claus and Rudolph? What I want for Christmas is a good luck charm because I want as many as my great-grandma. Have a great New Year.

Love, Katie

Dear Santa,

So how’s the workshop going? I hope good. If not, you know how I’ll feel right? So how are you doing? Bet you can’t wait for all the cookies and milk. If I was Santa, that would be my favorite part of the job. For Christmas, could you please make my mom stop smoking? That’s all I’m asking for. Merry Christmas.

Love, Adam

Dear Santa,

Hi, Santa. I know that you have a very long trip to all the good kids, but please listen. I believe that all animals should have a nice home and not have to live in a cage all their life. I also believe for animals like Lily and Athena — guinea pigs — just because they are not perfect, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have a home.

Now my wish list: a lime-green digital camera, a DSi, a stuffed animal and a hamster. It may be short, but other people don’t have a lot. Good-bye Santa.

Love, Kalea

Dear Santa,

I hope I have been good for Christmas and I know that you know Elfey America, my elf, and can you maybe tell Elfey to send me some chocolates tomorrow? If he can’t that’s OK. I love you, Santa.

Love, Sophie

Dear Santa,

May you give me an Xbox 360 and $200 to $300? Is it snowy there where you are? How are you at the North pole? Are you training the reindeer? How many people have seen you?

Love, Dino

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is Baby Butterscotch because I think she is so, so, so, so cute. Santa, I also have some questions. Can you send me some Christmas things or pictures of the elves and the North Pole or a girl elf outfit?

Love, Deja
