Kids to make lists of their own
WHILE Santa has been making his list – and checking it twice – children around the Fraser Coast have been making their own lists and writing letters, letting Santa know exactly what they would like for Christmas.
Hervey Bay’s Haurua family can’t wait for Santa to arrive – and Nazelina, 11, Laila Jo, 7, and Liam, 5, have been busy working on their own special lists over the past few days.
The Haurua family has only lived in Hervey Bay for a few months and will travel to New Zealand to visit family after Christmas – but Liam is confident Santa will find them wherever they are.
Liam, 5, is into Ben 10 and reckons anything to do with that would be a pretty good gift.
Laila Jo is hoping for a Barbie doll while Nazelina would like a Nintendo DSi.
With only a few more sleeps until Santa visits, Australia Post is reminding children to send him their Christmas lists before the end of the week.
Santa Claus has told Australia Post he needs children to post their letters before 5pm on Friday so he has time to reply.
“We are already at 50,000 letters and counting, which means Santa and his elves have been very busy at the North Pole responding to all the letters received and getting the toys ready for delivery,” Australia Post spokesman Scott McIntyre said.
“So busy, in fact, that he has called in the reindeers to assist with the letters as well.”
Letters should be addressed to Santa, North Pole, 9999, with a 55c stamp attached.
Letters can be posted at any red postal box or post office.
