He's making a list, checking it twice
It's beginning to look a little bit more like Christmas, after an extended stretch of warm weather.
The ground is finally somewhat white and everyone is getting excited for the season.
That means that Santa will soon be loading up the sleigh to deliver presents to all the good girls and boys.
Every year, the Post Office is flooded with letters to Santa from girls and boys of all ages, expressing what they would like to receive.
Well, we here at the Citizen have a bit of an "in" with the big guy and he shared some of his more unusual requests with us. To maintain the writers' anonymity, we've included only their initials and home town.
