And, of course, Santa doesn’t have the storage space for all of those letters — he has to prep the reindeer and prepare for his big trip on Christmas Eve. Can you imagine how many elves he would lose among the mess? Those guys are so short!
So, being the jolly old soul he is, Santa read them, took note, and decided to send a few of your letters back for us to print in the paper, to share just a little more holiday cheer with our readers on Christmas Eve.
My friend and owner is writing this for me. I am a pet bird. I am a cockatiel and I wanted to ask you for some things for Christmas. I would love to have a new toy and some special treats as I love to eat and sing. Also I would love to have a new bell ’cause I love to ring them. I especially would like for you to leave seed and special treats outside for all of the other little birds. Have a safe flight on Christmas Eve.
Merry Christmas, Popeye

For Christmas this year, I hope you will bring to Johnson City and our region a great celebration of our Sesquicentennial. I know that you know we won't officially celebrate our 150th birthday for nearly a year, on December 1, 2019. That's a long time from now! However, plans are being made for a year-long celebration for everyone in our area. I hope you'll bring all of us a wonderful, safe year-long Sesquicentennial celebration with nice weather for outlook events. Please, Santa?
I bet you get tired of milk and cookies, so please look for a nice Sesquicentennial salad and historic hot cider when you stop at my house.
