Santa is getting ready to make his list and check it twice, so local kids need to start getting their wish lists to the North Pole via Jennings Daily News (JDN).

According to the United States Postal Service, each year, hundreds of thousands of children mail letters in hopes of good deliveries from the North Pole just in time for Christmas.

On top of the daily mail, though, JDN also has Santa’s Mailbox, a direct line to the jolly man himself. Santa also happens to subscribe to the JDN (in print and online at, which is why the newspaper publishes letters to Santa every year — he’s sure to read the letters as he reads local news.

It’s easy and, best of all, free to send Santa a wish list. Kids can write up their letters and drop them in the bright red mailbox conveniently located outside the JDN office at 238 Market Street in Jennings day or night, rain or shine.

Santa is not the only one who will be reading local children’s wish lists, though. The closer we get to Christmas, JDN will begin publishing the letters from all the good boys and girls who have sent a note to Santa through the newspaper.

Area teachers are also encouraged to have their young students write letters to Santa. Those letters can also be dropped off inside the JDN office or in Santa’s Mailbox, or mailed together to P.O. Box 910, Jennings, LA, 70546.

Santa’s Mailbox is ready and waiting, so start making your wish lists now!
