Nothing is more magical than seeing the holidays through the eyes of a child. Letters to Santa have appeared in newspapers for over 150-years. Some are very funny, some are very sweet, and some just make you reflect.
We have compiled some letters to Santa, into a slideshow, dating back to 1898 for our readers. These newspaper clips come from California, Florida, Maryland, South Carolina, Texas, Pennsylvania, and New York.
Merry Christmas from The Free Press!
If you have a request, from an old newspaper archive, of a letter that you may have sent Santa, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see what we can do.
