Dear Santa...

Dear Readers,

Students from Swan River School and Yellow Bridge Road Learning Center allowed us to print their Letters to Santa. Kids always surprise us and our first year’s group of letter writers, though small, is as entertaining as any. Take some time to read through them. I promise you will smile, get a lump in your throat, laugh and be thankful for the magic of youth. Next year we hope to get many more students involved and some sponsors to help us crank out a stand-alone issue. But for our first Christmas edition in Bigfork, we can enjoy the ones we got this year. Due to space limitations, we can only run a few of the illustrations but we will post every one of them on and on our Facebook page. See more Santa stuff on pages 23, 24, 25 and 27. We won’t publish in January so we’ll see you in February with winter sports, holiday wrap ups, some St. Valentine’s Day fun and much more! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Vince Lovato, Editor


(From Mrs. Butts Third Grade Class) Dear Santa Claus, This might be a little much but I want a horse for Christmas. And, if you can, please bring a barn. If I was bad, please do not bring a horse and barn. You would be a life saver! Merry Christmas! I hope you don’t get a cold. How are your elves doing? What presents are you making this year? Sincerely, Peyton

Dear St. Nicholas, I hope you have a fabulous Christmas. I hope I do too and I hope your reindeer do also. I would like a baby corgi. I would also like a reindeer that can fly and its name would be Gilbert and one more thing, a suit of armor and a sword and shield. Sincerely, Wade

Dear Santa, This year I may not have been so good. But for Christmas I really want my mom and dad. I miss them so much. That is all I want for Christmas this year, Santa. Your friend Jaden

Dear Santa Claus, Hello, Santa! I think I know what would make your day. Maybe some milk and cookies for you and some carrots and trail mix for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blixen and Rudolph. I bet that would make their day. Now, let’s get to the gifts, ok? So, first let’s do some art stuff and maybe a flying reindeer or something that flies. Also, I’d like a horse, oh, and some more horses and of course a very big stable for them. I’m done with the horse stuff. Now, let’s do some pets like dogs, cats, and everything else. Last, I want a lot of games and outside toys for every season. Okay, now this is my last one. I want all the gymnastics stuff. I hope you can get me that stuff. Merry Christmas! Sincerely, Tatum

Dear Santa Clause and Mrs. Claus, How are you? I’m good. Thanks for the wonderful presents last year. I’m wondering if you are washing the sleigh or training the reindeer to fly really high at the North Pole or something. Hopefully you are excited for snow to come. I know I am ready to go play in the snow. I’m ready to have Christmas. I like all the reindeer. I know all of their names. Their names are Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blixen, and Rudolph. Also, what I want for Christmas is Pokemon and stuffed animals. Hopefully your elves are doing good. I love Christmas time. I don’t know why I love Christmas. I love to decorate my house but not many people can see my house cause I live in the woods (sort of). I hope that you can come to my house on Christmas night. Hope you are having some nice hot cocoa or drinking some nice warm coffee. Sincerely, Chloe

Dear Santa Claus, For Christmas I want football gloves. Your friend Liam

Dear Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, How are you? Thank you so much for the wonderful presents last year! I love them! I hope your reindeer are doing well. How is Rudolph?

Merry Christmas Santa! Sincerely, Taylor

Dear St. Nicholas, This year I would like a paintball gun or an airsoft gun. Thank you for the Wii U. I also hope you have a great Christmas and you deliver all the gifts.
