It was always a Christmas tradition for us to send a letter to Santa telling him how good we’d been and asking for a few presents. Last year we used Toyal Mail’s free letter to Santa service, but I’ve no itched a few others around this year… 

The Royal Mail one doesn’t guarantee a reply, and last year we posted Toddler H’s letter on the second last posting day and her reply arrived on Christmas Eve. This year we’re going to do that but also choose another route as back up in case Royal Mail don’t get to us in time…
