FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Page Field Post Office says Santa and his helpers have gone through thousands of letters so far this holiday season. The letters come with a wide variety of requests. Some are standard lists for toys. There were quite a few that asked for gifts for other children.
And some had notes or other "sidebars" that the kids wanted Santa to read. For example, one read "I either want the horse from Walmart or from Target, but I want you to decide."
Another read: "I want eight puppies, ten dolls, a fish, a poodle, a beagle and a cat."
The post office says time is running out to get a letter to Santa and have him write back before Christmas. But a special "Santa Express" mailbox has been set up at the Cape Coral post office by City Hall. Kids will have to get their letters in the mail there by December 20th to get a letter back from Santa in time for Christmas.
Parents are reminded to include a return address on the envelope, so Santa's helpers know where to send Santa's letter.
