Shelby County kids are writing Letters to Santa as fast as his Reindeer can Fly!

With only two days left until Christmas, Shelby County kids are writing Letters to Santa as fast as his reindeer can fly!

Though many kids ask for the usual - a puppy, candy or a new toy - these Shelby County kids are one of a kind when it comes to figuring out what they want for Christmas.

Some letters may make you giggle, such as the ones that ask for Teslas or real muskets from the Civil War. Others may make you smile or shed a tear, like the letters that ask for healthy families or new beds.

Out of the many letters sent to Santa, there a few of them that caught his eye from kids all over Shelby County -
