Long Island Letters To Santa


Santa Claus (North Pole, 2009)

So, we’ve had enough of Tiger Woods and Kate Gosselin.

Lindsay Lohan and Mariah Carey–who are they? Oh from Long Island? Really? Amy Fisher?


Never heard of her.

Anyway, moving on to someone we’re proud to have on Long Island this month…

Santa. Well, his elves anyway.

Through December 16th, Nassau County kids will once again be able to send their holiday lists directly to Old St. Nick at the North Pole via a special network of Santa’s mailboxes in Nassau County parks. Santa’s elves at the Parks Department will help Santa send cheery but noncommittal letters in response to children’s letters, with responses in the form of a “Santa-Gram” from the North Pole. To assure a reply, each letter must contain the child’s name and address, written legibly. Santa-Grams will be sent before the holiday.

Colorful red and green mailboxes will be accessible from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily at the administration buildings of the following parks:

Cantiague Park in Hicksville; Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn-North Hills; Grant Park in Hewlett; Rev. Arthur Mackey, Sr. Park in Roosevelt; Wantagh Park in Wantagh; and at Eisenhower Park’s Special Activities Building at Parking Field No. 8 and the Nassau County Aquatic Center at Parking Field No. 1A.

Letters can be deposited at the Parks Department’s Administration Building in Eisenhower Park Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. No postage is necessary for the Santa letters.

For further information about Santa’s mailboxes, please call 572-0396.
