Good evening all, spending a worrying amount time on the fantastic Christmas bargain threads has resulted in me being quite weirdly on top of my plans for the festive season.
My children have been busy writing their letters to Santa and as the deadline for a (fingers crossed!) reply is the 6th December, I feel it is my mn bargain thread duty to share the following information taken from the Royal Mail website.

Christmas letters to Santa:

Santa is extremely busy at the North Pole, making sure all the presents, including yours, are ready and wrapped for Christmas Eve.

It’s a very exciting time for all; Rudolph and Santa can’t wait to land at your home with all your gifts. Rudolph is especially looking forward to eating the carrots you kindly leave and maybe a mince pie for Santa…

To ensure Santa receives your letter on time please can you send to the following address:

Santa/Father Christmas,
Santa’s Grotto,

Santa will respond to as many letters as possible, in between getting the sleigh ready for the long journey on Christmas Eve.

To receive your card back from Santa, please make sure you write to him using the correct address on a stamped envelope. Don't forget Santa needs to know your full name and address to reply.

Santa is happy to receive your cards and letters now but because of a very busy Xmas ahead could you please write to him by no later than Saturday 6th December.

Be good and enjoy your holidays,

Hi I have done this on previous years though if I'm honest, you can do a much better one on a PC as it's not very personalized. It has their name etc but not about stuff they've done in the year etc. it's great for those with no PC though smile

I did this two years ago for my two children - one received a reply, one didn't. Imagine the fallout from that! I tend to do the PNP emails now Santa is getting a bit more tech savvy wink

Good point, we may do a joint letter!
If it doesn't work then I get Grandad involved, the power does tend to go to his head a bit though. I think my youngest is secretly slightly unsure if he genuinely is Santa despite my reassurances.
<this may be due to last year visiting on Christmas day and he was in a Santa suit-this was a surprise to me too by the way- and showed me that ds2 ain't no detective>
