How to Write to Santa…and Get a Reply!


Have you ever wondered – where do letters to Santa go?

Every year, millions of children all over the world write Christmas letters to Santa Claus. Whether it’s a list of gifts they’d like for Christmas or simply to say ‘hi’ to the big guy, writing to Santa can be so much fun!

But with so many kids all over the world writing at the same time, what happens to all those letters?

The answer – let’s just say it keeps Santa a very busy man in the weeks running up to Christmas!

Writing to Santa

If there’s one thing Santa can be relied on for, it’s reading every single letter he receives. After all, there isn’t much else to do where Santa lives! He spends his year reading the letters sent to him from children all over the world, making sure he writes back to as many of them as possible. Writing to Santa might be fun, but it’s even better to receive a reply in the post!

Santa’s secretary (yep, he has one!) makes sure he doesn’t miss any of the letters that come his way. Which means that all you need to do is write your letter and make sure he gets it!

Be careful writing that address, otherwise you’ve no idea where you letter could end up!

What to Write in a Christmas Letter to Santa

So you’ve decided to write a Christmas letter to Santa and (hopefully!) get a reply. The question now – what should you write?

When writing to Santa, you can make your letter about anything you like. Millions of children all over the world send Santa lists of the Christmas presents they’d like this year. Others send Santa Christmas cards with best wishes for all the elves and reindeer. And of course, some write to tell Santa how good they’ve been all year…just in case there’s something he missed along the way!

Whatever you write to Santa, he’ll be happy to hear from you. Here at Elfie, we specialise in ensuring that Santa not only gets your letters, but also sends you a reply in plenty of time for Christmas! We’ve worked closely with Santa for so many years and he’s never let us down, even once!

Video Messages from Santa

In fact, we can go one step further than making sure Santa replies to your letter. How about a personal video message, direct from the North Pole?

If we ask nicely enough, Santa sometimes sends children at the top of his ‘good’ list a video message from his very home in Lapland! See where Santa lives, hear what he has to say and hang onto your own personal Christmas message for life!

A personal letter is one thing, but there’s nothing like the big guy talking to you in person – all the way from the North Pole!

So if you’d like to write a letter to Santa this year and make sure you get a reply, we can help! Get in touch with the elves here at Elfie and we’ll have a word with Santa for you!
