Letter from Santa
Amaze your child with a handwritten letter from jolly old St. Nick himself. I will take your -- I mean Santa’s -- words, scribe them on rolled parchment paper, then seal the scroll with wax and ribbon. It will be a Christmas keepsake your children will treasure.
The following is a sample letter:
Dearest [INSERT NAME],
My elves and I have been hard at work to get ready for this Christmas Eve: brushing the reindeer, making presents and -- of course -- preparing my List! Nevertheless, I had to take a moment to write you a special letter.
I was pleased to learn how good you were this year (nevermind a few naughty incidents of which I need not remind you). I also heard you [INSERT ACCOMPLISHMENT]. Mrs. Claus and I are so very proud of you! I am happy to say you have made my Nice List this year -- and I notice [INSERT FRIEND’S NAME] has made the List, as well.
Alas, my time is drawing short, and Mrs. Claus has a warm cup of hot cocoa waiting for me. Give your wonderful [MOTHER/FATHER/GUARDIAN/OTHER] a big hug for me. I know they worked hard to make this a special holiday for you as well.
