Letters to Santa
Students write letters, make Christmas Decorations
By Bob Robinson

Senior Scribe Sharon Hopper, see When Children Were Children, talks about making decorations for the traditional Christmas tree. A few days ago, some of the children in Mrs. Black’s class at Woodland Heights were doing exactly that… making homemade decorations for their trees.

I remember those red and green “chains” from my childhood. We would make them in school and each of us would take them home for our trees. It’s wonderful that is still being done today.

When I got the letters from some of the children who wanted to share them with County News Online readers, there was also a song that they were evidently working on… the Reindeer Pokey.

It was sung to The Hokey Pokey and went like this…

You put your antlers in. You put your antlers out.
You put your antlers in and you shake them all about.
You do the Reindeer Pokey and you turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!
You put your hooves in…
You put your red nose in…
You put your fluffy tail in…
You put your reindeer body in…

Would love to have seen them in action on that one.

Here are the letters from her students…


Dear Santa,

I love you. Please can I get a Christmas tree for my mom?

Love,
Abby
