Santa Batty, hurry with the mealworms alright?

Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 7th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted this wild colony for years.

Hi everyone! The little bats at Save Lucy are getting ready for Christmas. Some of them are very excited because it’s their first Christmas! They've been writing their letters to Santa. I thought Freda’s was really cute. Here is a copy of it. I hope Santa gets her everything on her list!

Dear Santa,
I hope you and the reindeer are doing well. I am very excited because this is my very first Christmas! Some of my new bat friends said I should write you a letter and tell you what I want for Christmas. I’m just a little bat so I think I would be happy with anything you brought me, but I’d really like a couple of things. I would LOVE to have a huge container of mealworms. I would also like some waxworms and maybe a little blanket. Thank you!

I hope everyone has a happy holiday season! Don’t forget to write your letters! I bet you’ve all been really good this year and will get some really cool things from Santa!
