Merry Christmas to All of You. Here’s a recap of Letters to Santa this year. I had approximately 450 letters in two weeks. I had an address for all of them. Most were funny or heartwarming or both. A few broke my heart. I’m not saying any of this out of judgment. I’ve made more bad decisions than I could ever count. These are your children’s letters. If you are listening to your children, you would quit smoking. They are worried about you, thinking you will die. If you are listening to your children, you would stop the constant screaming. They are kids and get scared. After a while, screaming becomes normal and no one pays attention. If you are listening to your children, you would look up from your phone and get out the coloring book and crayons or maybe a board game. If you are listening to your children, you would go see the grandparents even if you are estranged. They are looking for a sense of family. Last but not least, the youngest children should not be listening to adult conversation about war, death, and destruction. They are listening to every word. Give them an extra hug today. You never know what tomorrow brings. I wish you peace, good health and love in the coming year. Love, Grandma Roxann❤️❤️❤️

Hi Everyone. I ended up with 450 letters in the two weeks the mailbox was up. About 250 of them were in the last 48 hours. I still have about 120 left. Some of the things that slowed me down. There were still many letters where the first name was not legible. Addresses were all pretty good. There were a few letters that nothing was legible, so I made up stuff. I have been thinking about this all week. I have to cut the time to answer somewhere. It finally hit me. Going forward next year, I will not be answering purchase orders or lists. Only letters. There is an example below with the name not showing. There are so many genuine letters out there (still in my pile) while I try to find a way to answer letters like the one below. This is a waste of time that could be put to much better use. I have 100 letters being mailed tomorrow. I answer family letters all at once so they get mailed at the same time. If you’ve gotten this far, enjoy the rest of your weekend. 🎅🏼🤶🏻🎄

The Santa Mailbox at 22 Treehaven Road has officially closed. Here is the mail from this afternoon. I am at capacity for answering them (about 2 1/2 weeks). In an earlier post, I gave out the address where there is another Santa Mailbox in West Seneca. She is ready and waiting to take your letters. Love, Grandma Roxann🎅🏼🤶🏻🎄

Good morning, Everyone. I was pretty sure on Friday night that I was going to have to close the mailbox down after today. That is the case. I will have it open until 8:00 PM this evening. If you can’t get here today, there is good news. We have a very nice woman on 80 Wetherstone Drive right here in West Seneca doing letters this year. I cannot speak for her, so I don’t how long it will be open. It is open for now. Her library is pictured below. Have a great holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Love, Grandma Roxann 🎅🏼🤶🏻🌲

We just got a call from Santa. He is feeling under the weather and can’t make it today. He needs to rest up for his long journey. Mailbox is still accepting letters today and tomorrow. Love, Grandma Roxann. 🎅🏼🤶🏻🎄

This is what our Santa Mailbox looks like. Overflowing. If you haven’t gotten your letters in, please do so over the weekend. I can pretty much guarantee we’ll have to take it down Sunday night. Thank you for your support and cooperation. Love, Grandma Roxann ❤️❤️❤️

Hi Everyone. Here is a final update and then it’s time to move on. I have spoken with the families (3 of the 4) of the children involved. The parents are taking care of the situation. It won’t happen again. Thank you for all the support. I am truly humbled. Believe in the Magic of Christmas. Love, Grandma Roxann. 😍

Santa isn’t very happy. Someone stole all the candy canes, suckers and the containers they came in. Also, they threw the pencils in the snow and squashed the container. If it’s the four of you I think it is, you are all getting coal. This was NOT NICE!!! I apologize to anyone who dropped off letters last night. I didn’t realize it until I checked my camera this afternoon.

The letters to Santa have been coming in pretty steady this past week. I cannot promise the box will be up after next Sunday. There are many regulars that have yet to drop off. Also, as an added bonus this year, Santa and his helper will be here on Saturday, December 2nd, from noon to 2:00 PM, weather permitting. Bring your phones and/or camera and take your child’s picture with him. Love, Grandma Roxann 🎅🏼🤶🏻

Good afternoon, everyone. The holiday season crept up on me quickly this year. I have been getting many messages asking if the Santa Mailbox is going out this year. It sure is. In fact, it will be out tomorrow. Here’s just a few yearly reminders. I do NOT need a self- addressed envelope and a stamp. We take care of it all. The most important items are legible first names and addresses. Last year, I had to pull the box six days early. There are just too many families doing letters at the last minute. I thought about my choices all year. I could either make the letters generic and do more of them or keep doing them the way I always have. I decided to keep doing custom hand written letters. That’s what makes our mailbox unique. Please get your letters in as early as you can. Please enjoy this experience. I’ve told many young parents over the years to enjoy every minute. Some days are long, but the years fly by. Love, Grandma Roxann🎅🏼🤶🏻🎄

Five years ago today, I opened Grandma Roxann’s Little Free Library. I could not have continued this journey without the generous donation of books throughout this time. I have met so many nice children and adults. Thank you to anyone that picked up books, donated books or just stopped by to say hi. I appreciate all of you. Here’s to another five years. Love, Grandma Roxann ❤️💙❤️💙

Hi Everyone. Banned book week starts October 1 through October 7. Since I do not ban books, you will find some of these in the libraries next week. I also want to mention. I see a lot of pre teen kids in the adult library. If you don’t want your children in there, please ask them to stick to the children/teen library. I’m also taking the candy out for a while. I still can’t keep a couple of boys from emptying it every day. They never take books. They forget it’s a library, not a candy store. 😁 Enjoy your weekend. Love, Grandma Roxann 📕📕📕📕📕

Hi Readers. Here is another local author. I was able to buy six of these. Leave ‘interested’ the comments if you would like a chance in the drawing. I will draw names tomorrow. How is the school summer reading going in your home? Don’t wait until the last minute. If you get it finished, you can enjoy the rest of summer without worrying about it. Love, Grandma Roxann 📕📙📒📗📘

Hi Everyone. This is so last minute. For National Night Out Tuesday, I’ve decided to put out some tables filled with books. Stop by between 5:00 and 8:00 PM and pick up a book or two or more. While you are here, enter in a free drawing to win a basket of school supplies. Remember, there is never a charge for anything at the library. Stop out on your way to the WSPD event. Hope to see you tomorrow. Love, Grandma Roxann. 📕📒22 Treehaven off Mill Road

Good evening. Here is another book up for grabs. This was written by a local school teacher during the Covid pandemic. If you believe that it was a hoax, this book isn’t for your family. I only could get five of these. I will draw names tomorrow. Good luck. Love, Grandma Roxann 🍀

Hi Everyone. I hope you are enjoying summer. Do your children have their summer reading lists? Check with me before you purchase them. I just may have it sitting on my shelf. I’ve been known to also purchase a few books. I have quite a few young adult titles generously donated by a couple families in our community. I will start a give away on Monday for the next few weeks. Have a wonderful day. Love, Grandma Roxann 💙💙💙

Hi Everyone. With School Board elections fast approaching, I thought this was time for a reminder about Grandma Roxann’s Little Free Library. I do not ban books. I have two libraries. There is an adult library. There is a larger library that contains books from toddler to young adult. From time to time, you will find books that have been banned or being removed from across this country. If you feel you don’t want your child to read it, leave it in the library. If he/she brings it home on their own, bring it back. My point is this. It is up to the parent or guardian to decide. It’s not my place to tell you what your kids should read. Have a great weekend. Love, Grandma Roxann 📕💙
