Write a Magical Letter from Santa to Your Child

Edited by Jonathan, Eng, Anonymous, Emmanuel M. Lardizabal and 3 others

Christmas is the time of the year wherein it is common to see children sitting on the lap of Santa Claus, telling him what they want for Christmas. This is a direct request from the children. But many times, kids want to write a letter to Santa to tell him about the toys that they desire as Christmas gifts. It is then a very pleasant surprise if Santa Claus wrote back the children. But we all do know who writes the Santa letters.

Tips on writing a Santa Claus letter to your children

  1. 1
    First of all, keep in mind that the letter should look and feel authentic.
    You want your young children to keep believing in Santa Claus up until maybe they will realize the Santa Claus myth.

  2. 2
    Seek cooperation from your older children.
    If you have teenagers who by now know the reality of the Santa Claus story, tell them to please cooperate and act as if they are also fascinated that Santa is really writing personally their younger siblings. They have already experienced the mystery, thrill and fun that Santa Claus brings. So, they should be understanding enough to let their younger siblings enjoy these feelings.

  3. 3
    Alter your handwriting or let somebody else do the handwriting.
    But the thought of the letter should be yours (coursed through Santa Claus). The handwriting should be something not familiar to the kids because you will be surprised that they will spot your handwriting from a mile away.

  4. 4
    Never, never write the Santa letter using computer print.
    This will make the letter look very fake. The smell of the paper, the borders, the handwriting, should make the kid think that he is in the time when Snow White and The 12 Elves were alive and kicking. The letter should look like something that came out of the North Pole.

  5. 5
    Insert some details about events, places and people in the North Pole.
    Picture something out in the letter like Santa feeding his reindeer, or talking with the elves. Or Santa sharing a carrot cake and glasses of milk with Mrs. Claus. Or describe the toys workshop of the elves.

  6. 6
    Make the letter feel personal.
    Address the child by name. Be familiar about your kid's room, his school, his interests. Praise him for being good, and cite some instances wherein he demonstrated this goodness. Tell him that he has a special place in Santa's list because of his being extra good. And to keep it up, so that his toys for the next year upgrades.

  7. 7
    Surprise the child with details about family events.
    The kid will be astonished that Santa knows that a new baby was added to the family, that they have transferred to another address (but Santa somehow still knew where his letter will be delivered to), or that the kid and his Dad has a tree-house project in the works.

  8. 8
    Close the letter with some easy requests from Santa.
    Ask the kid if he can leave some carrots and water for his reindeer because they would be hungry; and also some cookies and milk for Santa, because he expects also to be famished when delivering the toys.

A sample letter from Santa Claus to your kid

Sample One

Marcus Daly 456 Happy Drive San Rafael, CA

Dear Marcus,

You might be surprised why I am writing to you Marcus. This is because I have taken special notice of the way you have been good all year.

You have been very obedient to your parents. You always do your homework when you arrive home and study all your assignments before you do anything else, like playing your video games or watching your favorite TV shows.

In school, you are very attentive to the lectures of your teachers. You make it a point to teach the current lessons to your slow learning classmates. Marcus, you also have a big heart, because when your teacher announced a recyclables drive to raise funds for the victims of the recent snowstorm, you have reminded daily your Mom and Dad to collect anything than can be donated. This is because it breaks your heart to see all those victims on TV news who are now living in temporary shelters.

The busybody elves are working around the clock to have your desired toys and gadgets delivered to you perfectly and smoothly down the chimney on Christmas Day. You have to forgive their pace of working because you are not their only customers - there are a lot of boys and girls this year who have been very good too!

While I am supervising the elves who are going to and fro, I am very thankful to Mrs. Claus who have been giving me energy boosters during this very busy business season. She has been making me my favorite blueberry cheesecake and chilled four seasons juice drink. At times, she also prepares me my favorite strawberry yogurt and my giant bacon cheeseburger when I am famished by mealtime.

Rudolph and the red-nosed reindeer's have been most cooperative. They are keeping fit by going to the Antler Gym regularly here at the North Pole. As a fitting reward, I had the elves construct for them well-cushioned red reindeer shoes for their tired feet.

I already know what you desire for Christmas. An Apple iPad Air, a Samsung Galaxy S4 and a new shining bike. I heard you are doing so well in cycling, the sport that you love, so I am also kicking in new cycling gear (for your safety and comfort). You will be amply rewarded. I am still trying to find a way on how to fit your bike through the chimney.

Marcus, keep up the good work and the good habits. Continue being a Happy Child! Be safe!

God bless you and your family.

With much love,

Santa Claus

Merry Christmas Sarah! I hope you are ready for another GREAT Christmas Season! I've noticed that you have been doing terrific at St. John's Catholic School, and that you are doing very well with your horseback riding. That Jamie is quite a horse, isn't she?

My Elf Trixie has also been filling me in on how good you have been. Trixie can be quite mischievous, she told me about eating chocolate in the fridge and also taking a wild ride on the reindeer!

I can't wait to get to one of my favorite stops -- your house in Bellefonte! Make sure you are fast asleep when I get there, and you better tell your Cousin Adalynn she needs to be asleep too!

I need to check on all the reindeer, make sure they are all ready for our big night. I will see you soon!

Merry Christmas! Ho Ho Ho!

This letter is a blessing to bestow on you the need for a permanent home.

I have faith that your needs will be supplied and that you will be able to see the evidence of God's love for you soon! Hang in there and like Job, praise God even in times of trial and tribulation.
