For children, one of the most magical times of the season is writing a letter to Santa. The children like to make sure that when they go to sleep on Christmas Eve, Santa is fully aware of what’s been requested not to mention what’s expected.
Writing letters to Santa is something that I miss now that the boys are grown up. The funny thing is that everyone has a different protocol for how these get to the North Pole. Parents should really swap notes!
From a parents point of view, any writing practice can only be good. Now, its much easier to motivate your child to write a letter than completing their English homework! Furthermore, it gives the parent an insight into their child’s Christmas Gift expectations.
When my boys were younger we generally wrote a letter to Santa, popped it in an envelope and then put it on the fire to go up the chimney to Lapland. Since then these letters have changed quite a bit.
