Dear Santa...

We hate to interrupt this time of thanks and giving {really, let's stick to Thanksgiving right now if we can}...but, we wanted to give everyone a heads up on the deadline for North Pole Postmarks. Requests must be received in North Pole, Alaska by December 10th. So after your kids eat their fare share of turkey and pie, they can start working on their letter to Mr. {and Mrs.} Claus!
