Have you been naughty?
Aw, it doesn’t matter. We’re not picky.
Either way, you’re invited to celebrate the Christmas season with the New Castle News. And it will begin in a huge way on Wednesday, Dec. 12, as we begin running our Photos with Santa pages!
If you visited us on Light-Up Night, you can begin to look for pictures in the pages of The News. Beginning Wednesday and running through Christmas Day, we’ll publish a full-color page of photos from the big night. We’ll also include the pictures in our annual Jingle website, which debuts Wednesday as well.
From smiles to screams, from freckles to frowns, we’ll sure you’ll enjoy all the pictures in our packages.
And, as an added bonus this year, you may now purchase any of the photos with Santa that appear in our newspaper or in our special Jingle package. All the pictures will be available on our SmugMug link. To view and purchase any of them, CLICK HERE.
