Dear Santa
Our favorite letters from 60 years ago
The following letters to Santa were written by elementary students way back in 1963. They appear exactly as written by the young students — no proofreader corrected the spelling then, and no proofreader corrected them now. That is part of the charm of these missives to St. Nick. Hopefully some of the youthful writers will remember if Santa filled their requests.
