Christmas is right around the corner, and it's never too late to talk to Santa Claus about what you want for Christmas.
However, whether it's a letter or a quick stop in the mall or at an event, Santa's time is busy as he visits with millions of children across the globe during the holiday season each year. There are a lot of questions children may want to know about Santa that they don't get time to ask, such as how did he and Mrs. Claus meet, how many elves does he have at his workshop, and how do the reindeer fly?
The Lake Today has a solution. Our staff is going to sit down with Santa within the next few weeks and ask him such questions - your questions! In the Dec. 21 issue, The Lake Today will feature a Q&A with Santa Claus, asking him 10 questions from Lake Area students.
Children in grades kindergarten through fifth are allowed to submit one question to The Lake Today staff. The question is not about what they hope to get for, but a question like previously mentioned about anything to do with Santa Claus or his mighty staff and steeds, history or trip around the world Christmas Eve.
Once submitted, The Lake Today will put all the children's names into a hat and draw out 10 lucky winners. Those questions will be asked of Santa himself and printed as part of a special Q&A in our Dec. 21, Christmas, issue.
To submit a question, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, or fax it to 573-365-2344 with attention to "Editor: Santa Question." In the submission, please include one question, and the child's name, age, grade and/or hometown. All questions must be submitted by 2 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13 to be included in the drawing.
For additional information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and look to see if Santa Claus answered your question in the Dec. 21 issue!
