News organizations across the U.S. have already compiled their lists of “top news stories for 2016” and, for the most part, tragedies like terrorist attacks, mass shootings, climate change and Europe’s immigrant crisis top their lists. Much closer to home, however, the news was decidedly more upbeat with a state high school cross-country championship and a successful first-ever Art in the Park event.

Letters to Santa - All I want for Christmas. . . .


There were many Santa sightings in Elkader throughout the holiday season. One of the most recent was Santa’s visit to FreedomBank, which is where Sadey Arnold, daughter of Trevor and Rachel Arnold, Elkader, found him.

 

For several years, the Register’s holiday tradition has been to share letters to Santa written by young Central students. This year, students in the three combined second/third grade classes participated. Their letters are published here just as we received them. We made no attempt to edit, correct or censor.

We hope you enjoy these letters as much as we did. Many thanks to the students and their teachers for continuing this tradition.
