DescriptionBefore Christmas Letter: Can’t Wait for Christmas
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
This is a chatty, comical letter with a personal tone – as though Father Christmas is your child’s good friend. It’s doesn’t tell one, particular story but is packed with magical details about life at the North Pole.
From working out what to do with a troublesome magical vaccuum cleaner to wondering how he should ask the ice fairies to decorate his garden this year, Father Christmas’s news will stretch your little one’s imagination every which way until just like everyone else at Christmas House, he or she can’t wait for Christmas Eve!
Is there anything else I need to know?
Yes. The child who gets this letter must have some Christmas decorations up in his/her house. This is because in the body of the letter, Father Christmas writes: “The elves tell me you have some lovely decorations at your house, perhaps I’ll send the ice fairies over for a quick look while everyone’s asleep.” So it’s wise to make sure you’ve decorated for Christmas before you give your child this letter! It’s a lovely read though – and the fact that Father Christmas seems to know you’ve got your decorations up makes it all the more magical.
Father Christmas also mentions that it would be nice if the recipient’s room was tidy on Christmas Eve, so that he doesn’t trip over any books or toys. So, if you’re hoping to get your little one to clean his or her room before Christmas, this letter is a great choice.
What’s all this about adding a P.S.?
If you like, you can add a short P. S. to this letter. It’s your chance to play Santa!
Customers usually add something personal which is just for that child. Some examples from other parents are: “Well done for that brilliant story you wrote for your teacher. You’re so good with words – it’s quite a talent!” or “Give your brother a hug from me and tell your cat my reindeer are looking forward to a chat with him on Christmas Eve!” You get the idea.
We will place the P. S. on the bottom of the letter, using a font of Father Christmas’s curly handwriting. Please note that while we try our best to be vigilant, we cannot guarantee that we will spot any typos or spelling errors you may make.
Adding your own P.S. is entirely optional – the letters look just as pretty without.
We do not charge extra for this service.
How is the letter packaged?
This letter is gently folded, tied with a ribbon, and placed in a colourful envelope bearing your child’s name. The whole thing is then placed in a plain envelope for posting, addressed to a parent or guardian. This is so that if there are small eyes around when it arrives – it looks like an ordinary piece of mail. Tip: We suggest that you leave your child’s before Christmas letter somewhere around your house for him or her to find. There’s nothing like the look on a child’s face when they think a letter has magically appeared!
