Thanks to a very special U.S. Postal Service program, "Santa" will reply to children who mail him their Christmas wish lists this holiday season.
Every year, millions of children sit down to make a wish list for Santa, hoping he will make all of their Christmas dreams come true. But what if Santa actually wrote back? The United States Postal Service is now accepting "Letters From Santa," a program that allows any person to play Santa by sending a letter signed by Saint Nick to any child. According to a postal service news release, "The 'Letters From Santa' program helps parents fulfill the dreams of their own children." Instructions to send a letter from Santa: TELL US: Do your children or children in your family plan on writing a letter to Santa this year?

Patch asks when Christmas jingles jive with you.
It feels like we've barely put away Halloween costumes and decorations and already the music is starting. I was picking up some non-Christmas things at Toys R Us the other day and what should I hear over the speaker system, but holiday music, mixed with other tunes. Local radio stations are pulling out the holiday favorites. But is it too early for B101 and BEN-FM to "Rock Around the Christmas Tree," if Tom the Turkey hasn't been properly stuffed? Is it too early for Christmas carols? What's your favorite Christmas carol? Do you prefer the holiday classics or more modern Christmas tunes? Let us know you think by voting in our poll and sharing your comments.

'Tis the season for giving, and that is just what this local mom plans to do for our local community.
It's that time of the year when everything seems to be centered around one topic: Christmas. In my household, the boys are busy working on their 15th version of their Christmas letters to Santa Claus. They apparently need a lot of 'things.' My husband and I throw the old 'Santa's watching' statement around as a threat, thinking this will bring on better behavior. I find myself engrossed in catalogs, staring longingly at things I didn't know I needed. Conversations are focused around parties, shopping, cookies and plans for the holiday. I love fighting with the masses at the mall to find the perfect gift. I love ringing in the season with friends at holiday parties. I shop. I decorate. I bake a ton of cookies. I buy more gifts and finally …
