Letters to Santa:
Christmas is a busy time for everyone especially Santa Claus, so don’t forget to remind the kids to post their important letters to Santa by Friday 9th December. This will give him enough time to respond and let the elves know what they want for Christmas before he heads out on his sleigh on Christmas Eve.
Letters to Santa need to be sent to the following address and must include a full name and address so he can write back.
