DescriptionBefore Christmas: A Kitchen Full of Reindeer
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
This is one of those letters full of magical news about what’s happening in Santa’s house. This time, the North wind has caught cold and accidentally blown down the reindeer’s stables, forcing all nine reindeer to move into the kitchen. Given that it’s full of delicious snacks, the reindeer are pretty happy about this, but Father Christmas’ fairy cook, Madam Munch, is definitely not feeling their joy. In fact, she gets so exasperated that she turns one of them (Comet) into a cupcake. Fortunately, Father Christmas turns him back and all ends well, with plans to build a new stable as soon as possible.
What else would it be useful to know?
This letter should be read BEFORE Christmas. In it, Father Christmas reminds the child he is writing to to be asleep on Christmas Eve. If not, the reindeer won’t land!
It’s a great choice for any child interested in Santa’s reindeer, and who likes a dash a of humour with their magic.
If you’re having trouble remembering which letters you’ve had in previous years, you might like to know that this one went on sale for the first time in 2017. (So, if you’ve had other letters before that, they can’t have been this one.)
This letter is suitable for boys and girls and is not age-specific.
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?
Each letter is sprinkled with a tiny pinch of glitter and sprinkles, 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!
