Embrace the magic by sending your child a letter from Santa

Is Santa really there or not?

That’s a big question for a little munchkin. And if you’re the one trying to fill those enormous black boots this season then it’s fair to guess you’d probably appreciate a visit from more than one elf, for more than one day to complete more than one task.

Even though you may not realize it, whatever you do to make the holidays special for your children, nieces and nephews, cousins, neighbors and friend’s children creates lasting memories. Sounds cliche, I know, but it’s true. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that tid-bit when you’re trying to pull bunnies out of hats.

And that’s what brings me here today.

When my children were young, my mom (what an angel) would take the time to send them a letter from Santa. It was nothing more than a form letter that she used to fill in a few blanks. She sent the same letter for years and it was the highlight (yes, highlight) of the season for them. It was the highlight for me, too, because it was something that I didn’t need to add to my ridiculously long list of things to do.

You with me?

So here it is for your easy-peasy-fill-in-the-blank use.  When you click for joy below the Google document will magically open for you. You can edit the document in Google or download a version to your computer, personalize, print and then mail to all the little (and maybe a few big) people in your life. There are four areas you need to fill in: child’s name, town, wish list and friends. That’s it. Wishing you a season that’s full of magic.

    This is fabulous! Thank you Tracey. One of our activities for our Advent calender this year is to write Santa a letter, but I would have never thought to have him reply to them. I’ll definitely be doing this! Thanks again!

  2. thank you so, so much! this is *just* the thing I’ve been looking for! my punklings wrote their letters a few days ago and this letter back from Santa will be perfect for a neat, but not too typical reply. hoping your little elves have a wonderful, magical time and that you too get a restful break you deserve 🙂
