The Triplicate asked children across Del Norte County to entrust us with publishing their letters to ensure Santa would read their requests for Christmas.

As you will see over the next few pages, their response was overwhelming. Some letters to Santa are funny. Others generous and touching.

We hope all our readers — young and old — enjoy these letters, published as received with only minor editing for clarity, and every child gets their wish.

Merry Christmas.
