The two adorable girls in the collage to your right are my little sisters, writing their letters to Santa ca. 1958.
They also appear in the dere santey claus collage in footnoteMaven's 2009 Holiday Edition of Shades the Magazine.
In the excerpt below you will find what I imagine the letter they are writing might have said, as well as samples of some letters to Santa as published in December of 1899 in the Dallas Morning News. Since I am online via a dial-up connection at my home, I like to download Shades from it's bookshelf at issuu.com, and then view it page-by-page in PDF format.
