Before they were sent to the North Pole, the Journal was able (thanks to Falls City North School and some digging in the archives) to intercept some interesting “letters to Santa,” over the last five decades. Here’s a look at “letters to Santa” that have been published in the Falls City Journal over the years.
Dec. 21, 1971
I would like a clock radio alarm for Christmas. And that’s all I want. I would like that very much. I thought I heard you last year. But I didn’t get up! I was afraid I would scare you so I didn’t. Thank you for my gifts. I liked the grain wagon. It is nice but I can’t get anything through it. Everything is too big. I like it anyway. I can’t remember what else you gave me last year. I had so many things I can’t remember.
Love, Terry Fritz, Verdon

Please bring me a big baby dolly, a game, records, Barbie doll, snow books, some snow pants. If you can’t bring me all of those just bring whatever you think I would like. We will leave you a snack on the TV and we’ll leave your birds some popcorn outside. Also some oats for your deer.

I hope you know where all of us live. Do you have a globe of the earth to find us or do you use a map? We have been working hard to learn so we can pass to other grades. We will leave cookies, milk and carrots (ranch if the reindeers want it). Some of us will leave a trail of glitter that will lead you to the food. We thank you for the presents and Merry Christmas!!!!!
