DescriptionBefore Christmas Letter: All About My Elves
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
In “All About My Elves”, Father Christmas writes all about how the elves first came to be and how much happier they have made him. It’s a lovely story, told with Father Christmas’ usual magic and charm.
Here’s an extract from the middle of the letter, telling how tiring his work was before the elves appeared: “I had to work every day of the year to get the job done in time for Christmas – including weekends – and most of the time I was exhausted. Some of my friends tried to help me. The snowmen who live nearby tried to give me a hand wrapping up the presents, but they kept melting all over the floor and getting all the toys wet!”
Luckily, a wise old friend of Father Christmas’ decides to help him out. She brings the elves into being with a rather spectacular bit of magic and ever since then, they have been there by his side, making presents for all good girls and boys.
What else would it be useful to know?
Nothing really – it’s a good all round letter that should satisfy the imagination of any child.
This letter is suitable for boys or girls and as with all our creations, there is no religious content in it – our letters are intended as a bit of magical fun for people from all backgrounds.
AGE RANGE ADVICE: This letter is often enjoyed by children of 7+ years, who are really interested in knowing where the elves came from. It’s a magical way of exercising the imaginations of those who are growing into curious souls with questioning minds!
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!
