He’s making a list and checking it twice.

Hopefully, you’ll land on the “nice” side and avoid receiving a small lump of coal in your Christmas stocking.

But only Santa knows for sure as he prepares for his Christmas Eve rounds.

It’s time to start thinking about the holiday because Santa and his helpers already are hard at work.

The staff of The LaRue County Herald News pitches in each year by collecting and publishing wish lists for LaRue County children.

Boys and girls can address their letters to Santa in care of The LaRue County Herald News, 40 Shawnee Drive, Hodgenville, KY 42748. We’ll need all letters by noon on Friday, Nov. 15. That may seem early, but it will give our staff time to pass the letters along to the appropriate elves at the North Pole. For the third year, LaRue County High School students in Katy Cecil’s class, have agreed to type the letters.

We’ll print the letters in the Dec. 18 issue of the newspaper.

A boy and girl will win a prize, valued at $25, through a random drawing of the letters received by our deadline.
Their photos will be published in the newspaper, if their parents say it is OK.

Santa requests that all letters be neatly written and signed by the child. Parents can help, if the child is very young, but the thoughts in the letter should be those of the child.

The child’s full name, age, address, school and grade must be included, but only the name and age will be published in the newspaper. 

The contact information will be used only to locate the child if there are questions about the letter’s content or if the child is the winner of the random draw.

Letters may be sent by mail or hand delivered to the Herald News office. There is a drop slot available for after-hours delivery.

Letters may be emailed to editor@laruecountyherald.com if all personal information is included in the email. Please verify that the email was received at our office.
