When we were young

These letters to Santa Claus was taken from past issues of the Times, from the ‘60s, 70s and early ‘80s. We hope you will recognize some names and that they awaken memories of happy Christmases past.

Stay tuned for next week’s issue, when we publish the children’s present-day letters to Santa.


Dear Santa,

Let me know if you need a helper this Christmas. My name is Henry and I live in Apalachicola . I want a pellet gun and some clothes and some skates.

Henry Rochelle
