DescriptionChristmas Morning Letter: Spell of the Spriggan
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
“The Spell of the Spriggan” is a magical letter to read on Christmas Morning. In it, Father Christmas tells of how stopping in a strange land because Rudolf needed a drink led them to meet a most unusual creature.
That unusual creature was a spriggan – and it was rather hoping for a Christmas present. At first, Father Christmas wasn’t sure it had been good enough to get one this year, but then he discovered a kind and useful spell the spriggan has put on the nearby river.
What else would it be useful to know?
It might be helpful to know that Father Christmas does not mention he is on his way to the child’s house anywhere in this letter, so it’s a good choice for children who are spending Christmas away from home.
It’s also a good choice for any child who likes to read about unusual magical creatures. We don’t write letters for specific ages, because our letters are meant to be enjoyed throughout childhood – a gift to keep. However, parents tell us that their 7, 8, 9 and 10 year olds have particularly enjoyed this letter.
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.
