I ! Page 10A m The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder -- Thursday, Dec. 16, 2004 I Once every Yuletide mason, you newspaper readers are invited by us editors to share one of your extra-spe- cial "Christmases Past" with the gen- eral public. In addition, we recommend that our area's school teachers, espe- cially on the elementary level, have their students write a personalized "Let- ter to Santa." These "writing exercises" are benefi- cial both to the writers -- adults and children alike -- and our readers. By recalling a best or worst past Christmas in a couple of type-written, double spaced pages, adults and teenagers can often rekindle fond or heartfelt memo- ties. In fact, for the sad ones, writing about them may also bring closure to them. My favorite X-mas Story is ... With your story, make it the best ever by sending us a photo of this special Christmas and a mug shot of yourself, both of which will make for a stronger story. Oh, we'll help you brush it up, if needed, so don't worry about your gram- mar. So, in this festive holiday season of 2004, we editors are, once again, offer- ing you readers this opportunity to put your thoughts about Christmas down in writing. Additionally, you teachers can assign your students a pleasurable writ- ing test by penning down their gift re- quests to Santa. Both of these adult" and children's short stories will be highlighted in our upcoming 2004 Special Christmas Edi- tion on Thurs., Dec. 23 -- two days before the actual holiday. 'Letters to Santa' As in the past, teachers can use this once-a-year, Yuletide opportunity to create a "fun writing project" for your students. It's easy ? Just have them write a paragraph about what they'd like Santa Claus to bring down their chimneys on this December 24 and place under their Christmas trees? These "Letters to Santa" only need to be two-or-three sentences or paragraphs long and be signed by the child's first name and age ONLY. (With all of the crimes going on nationwide involving innocent children, we editors don't want any more information about the child than their first name and age.) Their requests to Santa will be printed in the Dec. 23 issue of this newspaper. These "Letters to Santa" are tradi- tionally cheerful, humorous, cute, and heartfelt. Most importantly, they give the children an opportunity to write, to accomplish a goal and to have their Christmas list to Santa published. In addition, teachers may want to post them on your bulletin boards in order to make your classroom Yuletide decorations more special and exciting for the kids. Again, the deadline is this Thurs., Dec. 16 -- two full weeks away. Please send or bring your letters to us at: Democrat~Pathfinder, P.O. Box 458- 108 N.
