Letters to Santa

Hamilton, Ohio – Little ones may have trouble spelling, but that’s no obstacle when writing to Santa Claus.

The Fitton Center team delivered a batch of letters from the mailbox in its lobby to the Big Guy before closing down for a holiday break Friday, December 22.


Among them were notes that read:


“To Santa - I hope you have a Happy Chismis.”

“(crossed out {To Sany}) To Santu I will lev coookies”


“Dear Sata i’ve been very good this year"


“Marry Crismis Sante Clus!!”


“Dear Snata Bring me a mermaid tail.”


“Deer SantA I will like a swishmellow and christmas swishmellow ---> I lovey Santa! I want 1. A base ball sleve 2. baseball machine 3. avo coto pillow 4. Rodalf sweater 5. sighnd baseball 6. elf shoes 7. Buble gum buble wuble 8. cat 9. rocks 10. aple Juice.”


“Dear Santa, I would like the drop dragin for chrissmis”


“Dear Santa I wude like a hapstn and a phon.”

“Dear Santa I have tried my best to be good this year (Never mind wot my sister says) and if you cold please bring me a pupy for Christmas.”


“Dear Santa this year I wund beeds to make braslets.”


“wut will you giv me fro kismis?”


“Dear Santa for christmas I would liek a star wars logo sets and a pet of any chouse other than a fish or a mean bird.”


Several kids enhanced their notes with drawings. See some of their sketches in the photo gallery below.


“We love being a place where kids stop and imagine and dream,” said Ian MacKenzie-Thurley, Fitton Center Executive director. “Santa is a huge friend of the arts and we love getting to share what the kids want with him.”


There was one suspiciously adult-looking note among the kid missives - initialed “IMT & Friends” - asking Santa to be extra careful on the Fitton Center rooftop and to please not let the pipes burst this year. (That’s one we really hope he delivers.)


Merry Christmas, everyone!
