Ok, so I was going through this really cool "The Night Before Christmas" book and it has some little extras in it. One of the things in there is a thing on writing letters to Santa. I just thought I would share it with all of you ladies. Please keep in mind these rules are rules for your children to follow. LOL! Here it goes.....
If your child wants to write a letter to Santa, the U.S. Postal Service suggests they follow these rules:
1. You should ask your parents for help addressing and putting stamps on your letter. Mistakes make letters take longer to get to Santa, and you want to give him enough time to write back before Christmas!
2. Santa does love cookies, and his reindeer enjoy fresh hay, but it's better to leave those treats out of your letter because they can be crushed in an envelope.
3. When writing a letter, think about other things to mention besides just the presents you want. Writing also about why the holiday is special to you would make Santa, Mrs. Clause, those hearty reindeer, and the hardworking elves feel really appreciated.
4. If you want a reply from Santa, this is how to get it. When you are done writing your letter and addressing your envelope, give it to your mom or dad. Then they will take it and put another envelope inside it with stamps already on it as well as your complete address, including the zip code. Then your parents will send the letter, addressed to Santa, at the Fairbanks, Alaska, Post Office, where it can get a realy postmark from Santa's elves.
The address is: North Pole Christmas Cancellation Postmaster; 5400 Mail Trail; Fairbanks, AK 99709-9998.
The deadline for sending out these letters is December 15.
