    As the title says really.

    We are going to write our letter this weekend and I thought it would be fun for Phoebe to post the letter in a letterbox.

    Im going to order her one of those letters form Santa but what happens to the letter that gets posted? I would have thought other people have posted them before.

    If you mark it to this address;

    Santa/Father Christmas,
    Santa’s Grotto,
    Reindeerland,
    SAN TA1

    In the letter write the name and address clearly. Attach either a 1st or 2nd class stamp to the envelope and send it by the 14th December (sooner the better) then someone at the Royal Mail will respond :thumbup:

    My wee one is too young for Santa but I was planning on burning the letter, don't have a fire which would be ideal so might use a candle when he is older. Though the above idea sounds lovely too, I like the idea of the letters arriving magically by smoke, really need a chimney for the proper effect though :(

    We used to put our letters up the chimney too! When our LOs are older I think we'll just post them. That's lovely that you can get replies!

    santa is getting up-to-date with the latest technology - you can also e-mail him! my nieces and nephew did it, and santa replied. he even told them what he would like them to leave out for him on christmas eve! don't know what site they used, but i just googled it and it seems there are a few.
