    Dear Santa,

    My name is Victoria. I have been a very good girl this year. I cleaned my room and even made my bed. What I would most like for Christmas this year is an art set. I would also like a tablet, an X Box 360 and a DDS. My house is the white one with a brown roof and no chimney. I promise to leave a card on Christmas Eve. Please say hi to Rudolph for me.

    Merry Christmas,

    Victoria

    Dear Santa,
    How are you doing? I don’t know if I’ve been naughty or nice. I’m wondering if you can say hi to Bif the elf for me, ok? I want a Nintendo 3DS for Christmas. Okay Bye Bye! I love you Santa Claus.
    Love,

    Dear Santa, I need a new toy box because I am going to need it to put my presents in. I want a John Deer Tractor to play with, a new calendar because I didn’t have one. I think I would have a TV. in my bedroom because I don’t have one. I don’t leave anything for Santa but I want something else. I want a table to set my TV. on. 

    Love, Ian Hill
