Despite having a busy year, Coweta County students were able to take time to write letters to Santa Claus. Before taking them to the North Pole, he allowed The Newnan Times-Herald staff a special preview of what the youngsters wanted to tell him and what they wanted for Christmas.

Here is a sampling of the letters (appearing as written) Mr. Claus received this year from Coweta County students.

Dear Santa,

The best kind of animal to pull yore sleigh on Chismas is a dragon. Dragon’s have great eye sight. They have wings. They are big. Dragon’s will keep you warm. Pick a dragon this year.

Dear Santa,

The best kind of animal to pull your sleigh on Christmas is an elephant. Reason 1 they are strong. Reason 2 if Santa is thirsty it will squirt water. Please use an elephant!!

Sincerely,

Ariel
