A pack of letters that Kris Kringle himself let the Town Crier borrow.

Instead of bringing you the usual news stories that fill the following page each week, we like to take a breather each year and let you look at the season through the eyes of the children in our community.

These letters are from the special Santa mailbox at the Idyllwild Post Office. The spellings (and misspellings) are the original work of the youngsters. We have not changed anything, and we sincerely hope we read all the names correctly.
