Christmas Santa letters have been a tradition for many years. It used to be that children would write a letter to Santa and give it to their parents to drop in the mail so that it could head to the North Pole. Today, children can go right up to the mail box and drop in their letters themselves. Most local post offices will definitely take the Santa letters for the parents. They usually collect thousands of letters each and every year. The tradition of Christmas letters to Santa is a tradition that will hopefully stay the way it is for a long time in coming too.
Santa letters are a way for children to gather their thoughts, to think of someone else and then to ask for something that they would really like to have. Santa letters are fun to write for children too. They can be decorated as they would like to be. Santa is happy to have drawings from children that can not actually write the letters themselves. These letters can be a good learning experience for a child as well. With all that said, there is no reason that children shouldn’t spend at least a bit of time to create their own wonderful Santa letter to deliver a few weeks before Christmas.
The good news is that there are options right now that allow for Santa to actually respond to their letters too! If your child visits some of the Santa websites that are set up, they can write Santa an email and have a response from him within a few days. This gives Santa an incredible personal touch that he has never had before. Santa is a figure that children adore and the thought of him being able to write back is just wonderful. Christmas is the perfect time for Santa to write back to his favorite admirers.
