Santa's special post box had a warm reception at yesterday's market, with lots of good little boys and girls writing to Santa asking for all sorts (and I mean ALL SORTS) of gifts for Crimbo..
Here's a selection of our favourites. The winner will be announced shortly with prizes available at the next market. There'll be a prize for humour, cuteness and anything else that makes santa giggle...
Please can I have a big present of Love and happiness for Christmas
I have been a very good person all year long, it would make me very happy to receive a few gifts for christmas. I would be happy to just get one of the following:
1) a cake filled with smiles
2) a smile for a while
3) a mile of smiles
Lots of love
You're so sexy.
All I want for Christmas is a kiss from you... x"
For Christmas I wish to hear my own voice.
Please may I have some more brio, a castle, sweeties, chocolate, duplo, (toy story duplo) iron man dvd, games, football goal and ball. I'm being a good boy for mummy and daddy.
Love Louy (age 3)"

I am writing to you to ask for a wonderful present for Christmas. I have been a very good girl all year! (really!) so if you please, could I have an amazing venue for the UnderGround Restaurant and Mollyqueen events along with a Kenwood Mixer.

Having now got my 2 front teeth - although they are a bit long now- what I would really like for Christmas is a long, slow sleigh ride, lit by a silvery moon with a man of age, wisdom and a popular personality. Someone with warmth, generosity and a good work/life balance. Failing that, chocs, wine and a sprinkling of delusion/illusion will suffice.
Have a good one and dont work too hard or forget anyone!
Love Jan x"
I will leave it up to you... Please may i have something FABULOUS.
Love from Martin x"
World Peas Please!
Peas are the most joyful and surprising vegetables - they snuggle in their pod until it is time to go 'pop' then enliven the dullest meal with green vibes. Whats not to love? bring on world peas...
I would love you to ask the universe on my behalf to find me and steve a B and B!"
