It’s amazing that Christmas is just a few weeks away. Normally, I’d be doing the count-down as soon as the “er” months begin. This year however, I’ve just been too preoccupied to notice the coming of my favourite holiday until ELC dropped a Christmas catalogue in our mail box a few weeks ago. Unknown to us, little T has been going through the pages like an expert shopper until we started hearing I want this mummy/daddy! I want that mummy/daddy!
My husband and I thought perhaps it’s time to write Father Christmas. And of course, that got her all excited, especially since this would be her first time to write a letter to him. So out came her craft-box …
She wrote the letter herself (with the help of mummy of course) using different coloured pens. I’m not artistic. I can write articles, short-stories, poems and even a novel if someone held a gun to my head. But sadly, I wouldn’t be able to save my own life if someone asked me to draw or paint by gunpoint. Good thing my sister-in-law gifted little T with enormous supplies of crafty-things, from foam hearts, coloured paper, googly eyes, you name it, T’s got it!
She chose the hearts. My husband and I had to remind her that she was writing a letter to Father Christmas and not making a Valentine card for her best-friend, but she insisted on the hearts. So I asked the husband to draw a Christmas tree on the side of her card and then added star stickers to make her card “Christmassy”. You know just to make sure that Father Christmas won’t think that little T sent the wrong card.
And there she is, holding up her first letter to Father Christmas. Did you know that you can really send your letters to jolly old St. Nick? Yep, you can send them to Father Christmas on this address:
Santa Claus/Father Christmas
Reindeerland, XM4 5HQ
Don’t forget to write your name and return address to receive a card back from Father Christmas. And most importantly, put a stamp on it, otherwise it will never reach him and no magic will deliver it to him either. All letters should be sent before the 6th of December. Remember, Father Christmas is a very busy man. Click here for more information.
