DescriptionChristmas Morning Letter: The Incredible Shrinking Dog
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
In “The Incredible Shrinking Dog”, Father Christmas tells of some trouble he’s had earlier that evening with someone’s pet dog. He met the dog when delivering presents, and dug in his pockets for anything that might stop it barking. A packet of shrinking sherbet did the trick, but then Santa is faced with the difficulty of returning the dog to normal size.
What else would it be useful to know?
This letter begins, “I’m just dropping your presents off and I thought I’d have a bit of a sit down for five minutes and write you this letter before I get back on my sleigh. It’s quite a cold night out there, especially when you’re flying above the clouds… It’s lovely and warm here though, isn’t it? What a nice house!” Therefore, it is only suitable for children who are spending Christmas in their own house. It wouldn’t really work for those waking up away from home.
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 Mummy a hug from me and tell your Daddy my reindeer could hear him snoring all the way down the street!” 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: Parents tell us
that they like to leave Christmas Morning letters under the Christmas
tree, as if Father Christmas has left it there with the presents.
