The Advertiser is proud to present our 37th annual Letters to Santa feature.
From the Barbies and BMXs of 1983, to LOLs and Ryan's World in 2019, we have forwarded the Christmas wishes of hundreds of children to the North Pole for the big man in the red suit.
And while our office will be closing, we are pleased to say the tradition will continue next Christmas, when letters can be dropped at Balloon Worx in Vincent Street.
Let's hope all of the children below have been good boys and girls this year.
Merry Christmas, from all of us at The Advertiser

Hello Santa, My name is Grace. Just one little question - how do you find our place?
Just like my twin sister, I look in the sky, but we know you eventually will make it on time.
Where do I start, there's so much I like, maybe a special big girls bike.
Give some to the kids that lost toys in the fire, and a cute little pet they would love and admire.
I've been good Santa, I really think, I won't forget your chocolate and drink.
Grace, 5, Weston
Hello Santa, my name is Miley. I love how you always find me.
I look in the sky to find your sleigh, but it's hard to look up there every day.
But you always make it safe to our house, and you're super quiet, like a little mouse.
I get that I want everything I see, but Mum said be happy with what's given to me.
I want you to give some to boys and girls that the fires came to ruin their world.
I will be good - well, I will try to be - because Mum said you're always watching me.
Miley, 5, Weston
Hello Santa, my name is Lilah and I am seven months old.
This is my first Christmas ever. "It's magic", so I've been told.
I don't mind what I get. I don't want for a thing, because I have my Mum and Dad.
My first Christmas will be good, and many more to come. The best I'll always have.
Lilah, 7 months, Glendale
My name is Sienna and I am 3 years old. I have twin brothers Aiden and Zachy who are 5, and a new baby brother Jacob. We all love our baby brother very much and are so excited to be sharing his first Christmas all together.
I have been a very good girl this year, so can I please have everything of Elsa from the movie Frozen and some pink slime. Zachy would like a Ryan's World Egg, green slime and a dinosaur cake. Aiden would like a Woody Potato Head from Toy Story, Ryan's World Egg, Lego and blue slime. Baby Jacob would like some bubby toys, a hat, musical jungle gym and some cool clothes.
We have been really good this year Santa, but if we can't have all of it then that's OK. As Mummy and Daddy say, as long as we're all together, then that's all that matters.
Merry Christmas Santa.
Love Sienna, Aiden, Zachy and baby Jacob.
PS. We will leave cookies and milk for you, and some carrots for their reindeers too!
My name is Korbin and I am 20 months old. For Christmas this year I would like some little toys and a big red car. Christmas is still new to me but I will get Mummy and Daddy to put some food out for the reindeers and leave some beer for Santa.
Love Korbin, Bellbird
My name is Memphis and I am only four months old. I'm very excited for my first Christmas. Being so little this year, can you please leave me some baby bath toys. Mummy will leave Santa some beer and a carrot for Rudolph.
Love Memphis, Cessnock.
Hello, how are you? I hope that you are well. For Christmas this year I would like a Barbie Dream House, LOLs, Barbies and some surprises. I promise I will share the Barbie Dream House with my little sister Jorja. I think I have been OK this year, I did well at school again this year. I will leave one of Dad's beers out for you as you will be very thirsty.
Love Rhian, 7, Cessnock
Hello, how are you? I am saying that I have been a good girl this year, Mummy and Daddy might tell you a different story but my story sounds better. For Christmas this year I would like some dolls, LOLs and Barbies please. My big sister would love a Barbie Dream House, she said she will share it with me so I hope we get it too. Rhian and I will leave one of Daddy's beers out, or maybe two, no more though, don't want you to get drunk.
Love Jorja, 4, Cessnock
