Even though Miss Frugal is no longer a believer, she’s been really good helping us keep the magic of Santa alive for her brother. Which means that I get at least one extra year of both of them taking part in all of our Santa traditions 😉
We’ve started our festive season by writing our letters to Santa – currently hanging on the tree in our special felt envelopes addressed to Santa but we will be sending them off to Santa in the next couple of days because he probably won’t have time to pop by our house before the big day to see what we’ve asked for!
We use the Royal Mail Santa Service to send our letters – you just need to make sure that your letter includes your child’s name name and address then Santa will try and reply back to you. Don’t forget to attach a stamp to your letter and post it to the address below by the 14th December….
To make a more personal letter for your child you could make your own letter from Santa using a site like Free Letters From Santa. You get to choose a Christmas themed background and personalise it in lots of other ways to make it special for your child and then you can either leave it somewhere they’ll see it or you could pop it in an envelope and post it to them.
If your children are more computer literate than mine you could help them to e mail Santa which is really quick and easy and he pings a reply right back for them.
There’s also a live child friendly tweet stream – which actually isn’t really a tweet stream as such as it isn’t even on Twitter. It’s more like a stream of messages between Santa, Mrs Claus and the elves so it’s perfectly safe to let the children read it.
You can even get a telephone call from Santa, starting from £4.95 but I’m pretty sure you’ll know an uncle / friend / workmate / random stranger who you can get to do this for free for you!
Do your children still believe?
