Growing up I used to absolutely love it when I got a letter from Father Christmas in the post. I used to think I was so special that he had taken the time to reply back to my letter.
Last year was Archie’s first Christmas and we started this tradition with him too. This year he is old enough to help do his own letter so we sat down together and wrote one.
I asked Archie what he would like for Christmas and as he is a little bit too young to understand, I named things to him that I thought he would like and the things he said yes to, I listed. I then wrote it out for him and he coloured on it and stuck on some of his Christmas stickers.
We sent our letter to Father Christmas using the Royal Mail service. This is a lovely service where you post your letters to their given address by the 9th of December and Father Christmas will send you a personalised response. This is a free service and only costs the price of the stamp on the envelope.
The address in which you send your letters to is: Father Christmas, Santa’s Grotto, Reindeerland, XM4 5HQ. Dont forget to put your child’s full name and address on the back of the letter so Father Christmas knows where to write back to.
I hope you all get your letters off in time and receive everything you wished for on Christmas.
Love Tilly & Archie xx
