Thankfully Merriam has you covered with their “Letters to Santa!” Stop by the Merriam Community Center at 6040 Slater Street to mail your letters to Santa! From November 20 to December 4, you

are invited to bring a letter you've already completed or pick one up and fill it out in the lobby. They’ll make sure the letters get to the North Pole just in time for Christmas. Learn more:
