Children of Key West and Monroe County are
Invited to send their letters to Santa Claus to The
Key West Citizen.
Each day Santa will read in The Citizen what
the girls and boys want for Christmas so that he can
start filling orders ahead of time. All letters will be
placed in The Citizen’s Special Mail Bag and sent
to Santa at Toyland, North Pole, by special airplane.
Children are asked to make their letters as brief
as possible and to be sure the writing is legible.
Christmas will be here before you know it, so
get busy and start sending your letters to Santa at
The Key West Citizen.
