Santa Letters

Saint Nicholas is a jolly man. Even in his ederly age he has the spirit of a child.  He was born on a cold stary night around 280 A.D. in Turkey. Ever since he was a little boy he has been know for his charity and kindness.

When Santa was a young boy, he saw a lot of poor children around him and this always made him sad to see.  When he grew older he inherited great wealth.  Even though he had lots of money, he did not keep it for himself. Instead he used it to help all of the people who were hungry and needed homes around the world.  He was so giving that one day he was given a great gift, one that lets him make presents to give to all of the children of the world.  It is the gift of giving.

Santa now lives in the North Pole, with his wife Mrs. Claus, his reindeer and elves. Every year, Santa and his elves make presents for all of the good boys and girls in the world. On Christmas Eve, he puts them in his giant red bag, then gets on his sleigh with all of his reindeer and flies through the winter night’s air to deliver presents to children all over the world.

His favorite thing to do is come down chimneys with all of his presents, but if there is not a chimney, he quietly uses the door. You won’t be able to see him, but you will know he was there in the morning if you leave a plate of cookies on the table with a glass of milk; the only thing that will be left is the cookie crumbs and the presents he left behind.

After he has delivered the presents that he had made specially for you, he goes back to the chimney, touches his nose and goes right back to the roof with his reindeer and flies through the air with with Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer leading the way.
