TG interview with Santa Claus | Shelbyville Times-Gazette
By DAWN HANKINS – [email protected]
The TG receives letters from children across the county this time of year. We thank all the children, teachers and families who submitted them.
One of those recently received was absolutely adorable.
My name is Dakylee Dionn Buckmon. I’m 4 years old. I was kinda good.
Thanks for the gifts, already.
I want a heart pillow, lipstick, GG devil’s eggs, a doll, and makeup.
I would like you to bring to my Rents (parents) candy, heels, dresses, shirts, boys shoes, girls shoes and men shirts.
Before I forget, can you please bring my Aunt Neh Neh a good partner. Whatever it is.
I’ll leave you some cookies and some fruit.
Santa Claus is often asked many questions, such as: “How are your reindeer flying?” Some kids tell Santa to be nice to their siblings, even if they really don’t deserve it.
Others ask Santa to bring gifts to those they love, not just themselves.
Terry Badger was recently at the Gingham Jellybean in the historic public square and stumbled upon Santa Claus. He even let her borrow her costume for a while. Thank you Terry for your help in this interview.
So this is it. Let’s see what Santa has to say this year.
” Hey ! Ho! Ho! Tennessee! I have received so many letters from your part of the world, so I thought I would answer some of your questions!
Some of you want to know what time I’ll be there. Well, that’s a very good question, but very difficult to answer. Christmas Eve from start to finish has no time at all! I start at the North Pole and I end at the North Pole! It has a little to do with the space-time continuum and a whole lot to do with magic! Have you ever seen a picture of me with a watch? It’s not going to happen!
Time sort of ceases to exist until I finish bringing Christmas joy to everyone. Oh, here’s a question along the same lines: How do my reindeer fly?
Since there is no time, I can exist anywhere I want with them and do whatever I want – no time, no gravity! I move in space and we don’t fall.
Plus, Rudolph has that red nose that you might have heard of. He doesn’t just shine, he sprays magic powder and covers all the reindeer and me with happiness and joy. The same powder helps me get into your house.
Speaking of your house, I really like these Oreo cookies that have been dipped in white chocolate! So do my reindeer.
Everything is very busy now at the North Pole. The elves and Mrs. Claus are doing well!
COVID here? No. It is too cold.
One last thing: Daniel, your brother has the same anger issues as you. I suggest talking to him and coming to a compromise, an agreement. It’s so much easier to get along and love each other. There is still time to stay on my “Nice List”. You have always been one of my favorites. You can even have a gold star in your name!
There you go, I hope I answered some of your questions. I have to get back to loading my sled! Merry Christmas to everyone. See you soon maybe !
