Letters to Santa was a huge success this year at the Santa House in the Down Town New Bern Plaza.
Santa House workers say, they helped deliver around 300 letters to Santa that children all over eastern Carolina placed in a special mailbox outside the Santa House. Some kids who wrote Santa a few weeks ago say they have already heard back from Saint Nick.
Each child receives a hand written response in the mail from Santa. Parents say it was nice to see how personalized each letter was. One parent, a mother of three, says each of her children wrote a letter to Santa, and each got an individually written return.
With Christmas fast approaching, the Santa House is no longer accepting any letters to Santa. But he will be at the Santa House in person till 8pm on Saturday.
Santa will also be back from Noon to 8pm Sunday, and 10am to 2pm Christmas Eve.
