Write a Magical Letter from Santa to Your Child

Edited by Jonathan, Eng, Anonymous, Emmanuel M. Lardizabal and 4 others

Christmas is the time of the year when it's common to see children in malls and department stores, sitting on Santa's lap, telling him what they want for Christmas. It's nice for kids to have the chance to talk to Santa, but sometimes, children would like to write a letter to Santa, to tell him about the toys and gadgets they're hoping for under the tree on Christmas morning. Many kids write to Santa, but how wonderful for them if they receive a letter back from Santa Clause. Thing is - we all 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 as long as possible.

  2. 2
    Get your older children involved.
    If you have teenagers who by now know the reality of the Santa Claus story, ask them to cooperate and act as if they are also fascinated that Santa is personally writing to their younger siblings. After all, they've already experienced the mystery, thrill and fun that Santa Claus brought to them, so they should be excited to make sure their younger siblings enjoy these feelings as well.

  3. 3
    Alter your handwriting or let somebody else do the handwriting.
    But the ideas in the letter should be your own, channeled through Santa, of course. The handwriting should be unfamiliar to your kids. They're smarter than you think. It won't be difficult for them to recognize your handwriting, which will not only ruin this sweet sentiment, but may destroy the entire Santa myth for them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    Never use a computer printout.
    This will make the letter look very fake. Your kids are probably more computer savvy than you are, and the jig will be up – immediately.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    Focus on the look of the stationary you choose, the smell of the paper, the borders, the handwriting – basically, you are perpetuating a beautiful fairy tale.
    Do the best you can to make it seem as if this letter came to them from the North Pole.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Insert some details about events, places and people in the North Pole.
    Perhaps you could describe:  
    1. Santa feeding the reindeer.
    2. Chatting with the elves.
    3. Santa having a snack with Mrs. Clause – sugar cookies and hot chocolate.
    4. Describe the toys workshop of the elves.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    Make the letter feel personal.
    Address the child by name. Be familiar about your kid's room, his/her school, interests and lessons. Praise your child for being good, and cite some examples. Talk about the reason your child is on Santa's special list, is because they've been good, shared, cared for others and did well in school.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  8. 8
    Surprise your child with details about family events.
    Your child will be bewildered and filled with Christmas magic, when Santa talks about his brand new cousin, or about the tree house his/her Dad built in the summer.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  9. 9
    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'll be hungry; and also some cookies and milk for Santa, because he loves a little snack.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Content of the Letter

The letter must be positive. This is not the time to chide your child for unbecoming behavior. Point out the good things, and for this moment, forget the ones your child needs to work on. This needs to be a letter your child will be over the moon getting.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  1. 1
    The letter should have inspirational message.
    Don't make it too heavy or intense. This should be a time of joy. Remind your child that, and talk about what a wonderful world this would be if everyone loved their family and friends and neighbours, and how important it is to do good in life, and promote love.

  2. 2
    Talk about school.
    The letter should contain something positive about school. Working hard, studying, performing well – are all things you can remind your child, without making it sound like a lecture. If you are having Santa say the same things you say time and time again to your child, the jig will be up, and they'll know it's you writing the letter. Perhaps one – I bet if you had studied harder for that History test you would have aced it, would be enough. Anything beyond that is too much.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    Be careful.
    To hold good grades over kid's heads for Christmas gifts from Santa is unfair. It makes Santa a bit of a brat, and for kids for whom school isn't easy, it doesn't empower your child, it defeats them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    Don't threaten to withhold gifts.
    Don't write that Santa will withhold gifts if demands aren't met. You wouldn't would you? Not give your child Christmas presents? Again, to perpetuate the myth, you need to be consistent. Unless you would withhold gifts for a naughty child, don't threaten to do so.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    It must be included that blessings will be continuously given to him if he will continue to do good things and be good in all aspect of life.

A Sample Letter From Santa Claus to Your Child

Sample One

Marcus Daly 456 Happy Drive San Rafael, CA

Dear Marcus,

You might be surprised that I am writing to you. I have taken special interest in how good you've been all year.

You have been very obedient to your parents. You always do your homework when you arrive home and study for 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 classmates who are finding it difficult.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Marcus, you also have a big heart, because when your teacher announced a recyclable drive to raise funds for the victims of the recent snowstorm, you have made a huge effort to get your family involved, and collect recyclables to be donated. This is because it touches your heart to see all those victims on TV news who are living in temporary shelters.

The busy elves are working around the clock to make sure you, and so many other children all over the world, receive the toys and gadgets you've wished for, delivered to you via 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!

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Supervising the elves who are all running to and fro and everywhere else, is exhausting. I'm so grateful to Mrs. Claus who has been giving me energy boosters during this very busy business Christmas season. She has been making my favorite blueberry cheesecake and hot coco. Last night, for dinner, she made shepherd's pie, and strawberry yogurt for dessert. She's quite a cook, Mrs. Clause is.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Rudolph and the other reindeers have been most cooperative. They are keeping fit by regularly going to the Antler Gym, here at the North Pole. They'll be ready for Christmas Eve.

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 Happy! Be safe!

Much love to you and your family.

Santa Claus

Sample Two

Dear Sarah,

Merry Christmas! I hope you're ready for another GREAT Christmas Season! I've noticed you've been doing terrific at St. John's Catholic School, and that you're also excelling at horseback riding. That Jamie is quite a horse, isn't she?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

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 from the fridge in the middle of the night and how once she took a wild ride on the reindeer!

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

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!

Example:

Dear Sarah,

This letter is a blessing to bestow on your need for a permanent home. I know that God will bless you will what you need because Philippians 4:19 says, " But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Hebrews 11:1 states, "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." I have faith that your needs will be met, and 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.

Example of Magical Letter from Santa to Your Child?

Do you have an example of some Magical Letter from Santa to Your Child I am a beginner at writing letters?

Dear Samantha.

What an amazing young lady you are! It's difficult to keep track of all the kids in the world, but I've always looked forward to updates on you and your life.

We've noticed you've been visiting people in the retirement home on Mistletoe Dr. every Saturday. I hope you know how much light you bring to their lives. It's a very kind think you do.

Life here is so busy. The elves are running around making toys, wrapping toys, keeping track of what goes where, feeding the reindeer. The lunch bell just rang, so I'm sure they are busy washing down their delicious lunch with hot chocolate, waiting patiently for candy cane cookies for desert.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Yet, amidst the chaos, there is love and kindness and good cheer, things I wish for the entire world. Ah – here is my lovely wife with my lunch. I'm hoping for candy cane cookies as well.

Again, all of us at the North Pole are so proud of you, and your generous nature.

Love and sparkles.

Santa.

P.S. Don't forget to hang your cute little dog, Coco's, stocking this year.
