Santa is waiting to hear from you; special mailbox on the Square

SALISBURY — Ho ho ho!
Santa’s Mailbox has reappeared on the Square in downtown Salisbury, ready to accept children’s letters detailing their Christmas wishes.
The festive mailbox will stand on the corner of West Innes and South Main, in front of the clock, through Dec. 21.
Santa reads and answers all letters as they are received. As long as the letter includes a return address, St. Nick will send a personalized reply to the child, straight from the North Pole.
According to sources close to Santa, the jolly old elf loves to receive letters, artwork and notes from children. As many as 200 children have dropped letters into the mailbox in past years.
Santa has relied on Downtown Salisbury Inc. for 16 years to help him by setting up the mailbox every December. He told the folks at Downtown Salisbury that he looks forward to hearing from children in the area and wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and happy holidays.
