One of the most magical parts of Christmas to me has always been the letters that the kids have written to Santa.
We usually write them at the start of December and hang them on our tree as we have two small felt envelopes addressed to Santa on the tree and at some point soon after we hang them up, they disappear and the kids think that one of Santa’s elves has been to collect them and take them to the main man.
What actually happens is a little different though
Generally, I take the letters our of the envelopes and use the Royal Mail Santa Service to send them to Santa. If you make sure that your letter includes your child’s name and address and a stamp before the 6th December then Santa will try and write back.
If you’d prefer you can e mail Santa which is really quick and easy and we’ve always had a really quick reply from him when we’ve done this.
There’s even a live child friendly tweet stream – which isn’t really on Twitter as it’s the North Pole’s version of Twitter.
And don’t forget Portable North Pole where you can get a free video message from Santa.
