What’s it about? “A Winged Gift” is a gentle letter about someone giving Father Christmas a gift for a change! Father Christmas is on his way to feed the reindeer, when he is stopped by the post penguin with a special delivery. An old friend has sent Father Christmas a flying horse called Cloudcutter. The horse has been rather lonely in the past because he has had to spend a lot of time on his own. Cloudcutter moves into the reindeer stables and soon becomes great friends with Rudolph and the other reindeer.
In the run up to Christmas, many parents tell us they like to read our letters as bedtime stories. This letter is an obvious choice for any child who likes horses.
Further Info: Our letters from Father Christmas are written and illustrated by Leone Annabella Betts. Her letters all tell magical stories and have been enjoyed by thousands of children for over ten years. You might like to know that our full-length story-letters are signed “Father Christmas” rather than “Santa Claus”. Also, in spite of the rise of holidays to see Father Christmas in Lapland, we have gone with the notion of him living at the North Pole. This is because our letters are meant to be enjoyed worldwide, whereas trips to Lapland are largely a European trend. If you are worried about giving your child one of our letters because he/she believes strongly that Father Christmas lives in Lapland, we suggest you tell him/her either that Santa has more than one house, or that his house is so magical that it can be in more than one place at the same time. Hope that helps! You can find out more about Father Christmas here.
Don’t forget, you can get that extra authentic look by printing a matching decorative design on the reverse of your Father Christmas letter.
