Ho, ho, ho!

The elves are hard at work, putting together our last toys of the season, and I am just about done checking my list a second time. But there are still more children in Hesperia and the Victor Valley who have not written me yet this year, and I hope they do before I set out in my sleigh this year.

For the last few years, the Hesperia Star has published letters sent to me, Santa, in the newspaper, and this year, I am again checking my santaclaus@hesperiastar.com e-mail address. The Hesperia Star will also be randomly selecting letters and giving some families gifts as well.

I hope we hear from you soon and remember: Be good for goodness' sake!

Santa Claus can be reached at santaclaus@hesperiastar.com.

The Hesperia Star staff will be randomly choosing letters from
High Desert children and giving their families gift certificates. To be
eligible, please include a 760 area code phone number so that newspaper
staff can contact the winners. (Phone numbers will not be published in
the newspaper.)

The deadline for e-mails to Santa is December 14 and e-mails to Santa will appear in the December 23 edition of the newspaper.
