It is about Christmas time. I have been a bad little boy this year. I am 11 years old. I will tell you what I want for this Christmas. I want a football, a pair of slippers, and if you do not mind, I will take a scooter and if you are not too selfish I will take some apples, nuts, and oranges, and I guess that will be all, but I want to tell what my brother wants. He wants a truck, a pair of boots, candy, apples, nuts, oranges. That is all. A. M. Smith
I have been good and bad too, but you bring me something anyhow. Please bring me lots of candy, apples, oranges, and bananas, but don’t bring me pills because they make me sick.

I don’t want much this year for Christmas but just some story books and some gloves and a fountain pen, and please don’t forget to bring apples, oranges, and candy and all kinds of nuts.

I have been a good little girl since you came last year. I am nine years old.

Santa, I hope you will bring me what I wish and do not forget to give something to the poor children and bring some things for my brother and sister and father and mother. Charleen Miller.
I have been a good girl since you came last year. I want a big doll with real hair and blue eyes. I want a pretty doll carriage to roll her in with a window on each side, a basket full of candy, nuts, apples, oranges, and a pair of skates, a bicycle and a big doll house to keep my doll and its clothes. I am a girl in the fifth grade and I am just nine years old. If you will bring me what I want I will be a good little girl and help mother too. I hope that Santa will have a Merry Christmas like I am going to have. I hope you bring my sister and brother something and all the poor children. Cordelia Dowd
