Rabobank in Angels Camp Already Received 4 Letters to Santa

Angels Camp, CA...Rabobank, N.A. is helping Santa’s elves by collecting Letters to Santa and expediting personalized responses to eager children who drop off their letters in early December. Rabobank will pay the first-class postage on all letters dropped off at a local branch on or before Friday, Dec. 7, and confirm that the letters are directly delivered to Santa’s workshop. If parents or legal guardians opt to include a complete return address, including the young sender’s name, they can expect to receive a response – postmarked from the North Pole – in the week leading up to Christmas.

Letters without a return address (or dropped off after Dec. 7) are welcome though they’ll likely not receive a response.

They can be dropped off at these Rabobank’s Angels Camp branch, 501 South Main St.

      Dear Santa:

      I been a really good boy this year and always treated my sister with respect. I am writing to you because I don’t want a video game system or anything that can come in a box.

      What I really want for Christmas is the license of the old man who almost hit us last week to be suspended. His license plate read C Galls and I know I’m only 13 but even I know when you are driving that terribly there is something wrong and the situation needs to be dealt with immediately.

      If you Santa can make this happen I would be ever so delighted! That way his horrible terrible driving can never ever hurt anybody ever!

      Thank you for reading my letter and hopefully it will be posted soon of who was driving C Galls and that his license was indeed suspended.

    it is all lie based on some german aqualung type guy who ate children. why are you teaching your children fables and lies. oh that is right because you were not smart enough to research the truth on your own.

    so the dumbing down of society continues.

      History did not begin with your birth. Take the time to increase your knowledge.

      Modern western countries perpetuate a story of a giver of gifts who enters homes by stealth, leaves generous gifts, and departs as secretly as he came. In the British Isles this figure is called "Father Christmas," and in France, Père Noël. The Dutch call him Sinter Klaas, which is the literal translation of "Saint Nicholas" in Dutch—and in the United States, he is called "Santa Claus," a corruption of the Dutch name.

      The ultimate basis of Santa Claus is Saint Nicholas, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Myra. In the ninth century AD, coincident with the Muslim invasion and re-invention of Roman Asia Minor as the Ottoman Empire, the bones of Saint Nicholas were transported to Europe. The many legends about this bishop—including a persistent legend about the "manna" coming from his body after his death—fostered the growth of new legends of Saint Nicholas being somehow larger than life.

      This generous Saint Nicholas, a bishop in the pre-Constantine church, a delegate to the Council of Nicaea, and a true champion of justice—a quite honorable enough memory for any man. Yet, persistent legend about Nicholas arises from his charitable activities. According to one account, he secretly gave three bags of gold—or three gold balls—to three young women who lacked dowries, by throwing the gold into their houses at night. The gold happened to land inside the stockings that the women had hung up near their fire hearths to dry.

      The Savior was not born in the middle of winter. You should go research about the pagan g-d Tamuz.

          And you need to go back to school to re learn how to spell cuss words! I like Dennis Mills and Clyde. Too bad Clyde lost and that doesn't mean the ban will be lifted either. Even if it did a lot of growers are already gone and I really doubt they will come back. I think too many people got discouraged and now the whole world got the message that commercial cultivation is not wanted here!
