Gone are the days of circling your favourite presents in the Argos catalogue, but plenty of fun can still be had, including sending a letter to Santa!

From Royal Mail:

“It’s nearly Christmas, and we know you want to make sure that your letter to Santa Claus gets to him. We’ve just received the message below from Santa himself – he’s as excited about Christmas as we are. Please remember, as Santa says: get your letter posted by Friday 10 December*.”

Dear Children,

Are you looking forward to Christmas this year? I certainly am! Christmas is a very exciting but busy time for me.

The elves are busy making toys

The reindeer are practising their sleigh runs

And I’m busy preparing my list of who’s been good.

I will be getting my sleigh ready for the long journey on Christmas Eve. In between I will try and reply to as many of you as possible.

Please send your letters to:

Santa/Father Christmas
Santa’s Grotto
