Children, here are ten special tips to help you write Santa Claus this year. Letter writing can be tough. If you want your Christmas letter to really impress Santa, keep reading.
Writing Tip 1: When you are writing a letter to Santa, be honest. Don’t try to fool him. Remember, Santa sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake. You can’t put anything past Santa Claus, so don’t try.
Writing Tip 2: Ask Santa how he is. Lots of kids just jump right into talking about what they want. You have to remember, Santa is a person too! After you ask how he’s doing, it’s good manners to also ask about Mrs. Claus and the reindeer. Mrs. Claus reads a lot of the letters with Santa. She loves when kids mention her.
Writing Tip 3: Find a nice sheet of paper to write on. If you don’t have anything Christmas related, go with a piece of white lined paper. If you rip it out of a notebook, cut off the messy edge.
Writing Tip 4: Write your age on the top of your letter. It helps the letter sorting office.
Writing Tip 5: Be polite when you ask Santa for what you want. Santa’s old–older than your uncles or your grandpa. He’s old fashioned. It means a lot to him when kids ask nicely.
Writing Tip 6: Don’t ask too many questions about how the reindeer fly or how Santa gets into your house. It’s all the magic of Christmas and Santa’s secret. If he wanted you to know, Santa would tell you.
Writing Tip 7: Draw your best Christmas picture on the letter. You can draw Santa, Mrs. Claus, the elves, Rudolph or all the reindeer. Color in a Christmas tree or a holiday wreath. You can even tempt Santa by drawing the cookies you plan on leaving him Christmas Eve.
Writing Tip 8: Mail your letter early. Think about all the kids in the world who write Santa letters. That’s a lot of reading. Santa appreciates letters that come in early because it gives him lots of time until Christmas. Ask your parents to help check your letter before you mail it.
Writing Tip 9: This goes without saying, but write in your very best handwriting. There are rumors that Santa’s favorite letters get framed and hung on a wall at the North Pole! Try not to cross out words if you can.
Writing Tip 10: The last tip: write to Santa from the heart. Santa loves your letters. Christmas is a special time of year and if you are doing your best and taking the time to write to him, he is going to love your letter!
