Writing a letter to Father Christmas

Dear Father Christmas

In the UK, it’s traditional to make a list of presents for Father Christmas. Some kids like to leave their list on the mantelpiece so that when Santa comes down the chimney, he’ll be able to find it straight away. It’s also common to leave a mince pie for Santa, and some people leave a bowl of water and a carrot for the reindeer.

After all, it’s a long way from the North Pole!


Father Christmas gets lots of post!
Every year, thousands of children like to write to Father Christmas and let him know what presents they’d like to get. Santa answers every letter personally.
If you haven’t already written to Santa then you need to hurry and post it soon! The deadline is the 6 December!
The address is:
Santa/Father Christmas
Santa’s Grotto

 Remember to put a stamp on the letter, as well as your return address, so you’re sure to get a reply.
