On the night before Christmas, Santa mounted his sleigh. The presents were packed; Time to be underway! The night air was chilly, the hour was late— When a letter came in from a faraway state. Santa is all ready to leave on Christmas Eve, but last-minute letters are arriving from Washington! From a little girl who is wishing for more sunshine to some mischievous bears inviting the reindeer over for a playdate, each letter contains a humorous request that gets even Santa chuckling. Even better, each letter comes tucked in its own pocket envelope with other delightful extras like cards, money for toll roads, and even a map of Washington! How will Santa respond? It’s Washington Christmas magic you’ll have to see!
