It’s day 2 of my 25 Days of Gifts series, and the featured gift today is from Santa himself!
Last year my niece and nephew received a special gift from Santa a couple of weeks before Christmas. He wanted to make sure they were on track to finish out the year strong on the “nice” list, so he included a letter telling them to be extra good. As incentive, he sent them a book called The Pajama Elves that they could read on Christmas Eve. The book is about the elves who make magic pajamas to help kids fall asleep early so Santa can come. My nephew said later that the magic didn’t really work because he didn’t fall asleep any earlier than normal.
I think it was a neat tradition to start though, so this year Santa went to Hanna Andersson for PJs.
And this is the letter he wrote:
The trick is to sell it. I put unique touches on my package to make it look like it came from the North Pole. I use a wax seal like this to authenticate the package.
And I put Santa as the sender of course. The post office really doesn’t like “North Pole” as the return address, but if you’re persistent they will give in.
If you don’t want to send a gift, but you like this idea, you can send a letter from Santa and get a North Pole postmark added. The post office has a program where you send your letter to North Pole, Alaska. They put their postmark on it and send it on to the final destination. Check here for more details, but don’t wait too long. They have to receive your letter in Alaska by December 15 to guaranty Christmas delivery.
Here’s another great way to send a message from Santa. You can create a personalized video to have Santa talk directly to your kids:
Santa’s magic deserves to have a whole month….just like my birthday!
