Santa’s Mail Box is now at the Idyllwild Post Office ready to receive letters from local children. Santa’s postal elves Kelsi Lehman, Christina Edwards, Postmaster Kelly Gates and Sherry Kaufman, present the box all ready for the first letters to Santa. Children may mail their letters to Santa up until noon Monday, Dec. 17, in order to reach the North Pole in time for Christmas. And every year, Santa gives the Town Crier permission to print some of the letters he receives from Idyllwild boys and girls in the newspaper. Photo by James Larkin
