Utica, NY (WIBX) - This is for our youngest listeners out there, assuming that you have all been nice, and no one has been naughty.

Santa Claus is announcing that he will be available for all of your Christmas wish list requests beginning next week.

Because of all of the work that needs to be done, calls to the Ho Ho Hotline will only be accepted from 10:00am to 2:00pm Monday through Friday from December 10 through December 21, 2012.

And if you want to know what kind of cookie you should leave out for Santa, we got the inside scoop from Leslie Lawrence, who works full-time as the director of the Saint Luke's Adult Day Health program and moonlights at the North Pole, who says he's not a picky eater.

Santa will put the Ho Ho Hotline number on our website on December 10, 2012.
