Have Los Gatos kids been naughty or nice this year?

Local students write letters to Santa, make gingerbread houses

Letters to Santa are a long-time tradition, with wee little ones usually telling the big guy they’ve been “good boys and girls this year.”

Occasionally, a child will admit they’ve been both naughty and nice, which is what 5-year-old Jefferson, Emmett and Blake, and 6-year-old Logan said in their letters to Santa.

The letters, a few of which say “the darndest things,” were written by members of Nicole Adam’s kindergarten class at St. Mary’s School in Los Gatos.

We also bring holiday greetings from youngsters who participated in LGS Recreation’s Gingerbread House workshop. Children participating in the fun activity were focused on frosting and candies but were more than happy to talk about their requests to Santa Claus.

Thirteen-year-old Yutaro, who attends Fisher Middle School, says he’s not too old to believe that Santa will be bringing him an Apple Watch. His sister, 9-year-old Blossom Hill student Naho, would like an Instax camera that comes in “five trending colors,” including lavender and light pink.

Three-year-old Shane is hoping for a toy train, his mother saying, “I think he’s going to get it.” 

Did you know there’s an actual gingerbread man story? Three-year-old Folake Phillips’ mother signed up for the class because he likes the story about the ginger man trying to escape “from everyone who’s trying to eat him.”

Hayden, 6, attends Saratoga’s Foothill Elementary and is hoping for some pointe shoes. “I watched ballerinas and I really like it,” she said. Her sister, 8-year-old Camille, pointed out that their aunt “designs costumes for professional ballerinas,” keeping it all in the family.

Speaking of family, a pottery wheel tops Camille’s list because she “really wants to make vases for my grandma.”

Pokemon, Beyblade spinning top toys and new-fangled “Light Up Blocks” rounded out the hoped-for gifts that elves will stuff into Santa’s sleigh as he jingles his way around the world.
