DescriptionBefore Christmas Letter: Father Christmas and the Fairy Picnic
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
This letter is an absolute must for children who believe in fairies! Father Christmas writes it having been to a beautiful fairy picnic in the nearby Christmas tree woods, where he got to meet the fairy queen.
While he was there, she asked him to tell her all the names of children who believe in fairies, so that she could send her fairy helpers to wave their wands over them while they slept, and give them sweet dreams.
Father Christmas writes, “And do you know whose name I gave her first? Yes, yours. I told her a bit about you too.” If you’ve got a child who is a fairy fan, he or she is bound to love this idea.
It’s a sweet letter, full of compliments for the child reading it – a great confidence builder – not to mention a magical tale.
What else would it be useful to know?
This letter is a particularly popular choice for girls.
Father Christmas makes a point of saying that he’s heard your little one has been good in this letter, so if you’re adding a P.S., you probably don’t need to reiterate that.
AGE RANGE ADVICE: Although our letters tend to be enjoyed by children of 6+ years, parents have told us that this one has gone down well with children as young as 4.
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!
