dear santaHENDERSON, Ky. – On his way back to the North Pole to pack his sleigh for a big delivery night later this week, Santa Claus mailed a bundle of reply letters from the post office bearing his name in Santa Claus, Indiana.

Henderson city officials reported Santa and his elves had offered to answer letters from children that were dropped in his mailbox at the Christmas in the Park display in downtown Henderson’s Central Park provided a return address was listed.

City of Henderson Parks Department officials said Santa received 130 letters in his mailbox, and 79 of them had return addresses.

Parks also said Santa got a "jolly old chuckle" over some of the messages he received.

One little girl asked for many toys but suggested that Santa bring her sister “socks and underwear, because she was bad.”

And a little boy attempted to bribe Santa, promising to “slide him some extra cookies” if Santa wrote him back.

Popular requests made in the mail Santa received were for electronics (including iPads and iPhones) and toys.

Many of the letters included requests that Christmas greetings be passed along to Mrs. Claus, the elves and reindeer.

Santa Claus visited Central Park on Saturdays and Sundays during December, but left for the North Pole following his Dec. 17 visit, Henderson officials said.

However, the 32nd-annual Christmas in the Park celebration with its 67-foot community Christmas tree and more than 15,000 lights remains open for playtime and photos until the end of December.

Christmas in the Park is presented by the city of Henderson in partnership with the Henderson Breakfast Lions Club. It features more than 30 displays, many of which are interactive.
