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…
Free Letter from Santa!
Last posting date 8th December!
Send a letter by the 8th December and receive a reply. It’s not guaranteed, but good if you get there in time – there got a really early closing date this year – this Friday the 8th!
Make your own
We’ve seen a few post boxes for Santa’s letters dotted around or you could give your letter to Santa when you go to meet him. Then write your own reply and post or have it ‘appear’ from Santa.
