DescriptionChristmas Morning Letter: Father Christmas and the Flying Saucer
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
It’s late at night, you’re fast asleep and Father Christmas has just landed to deliver your presents and dash off this letter. It’s been difficult flight on his sleigh, first he dropped his spectacles somewhere over France then, for no apparent reason, his beard began to grow. And grow. And grow. This letter will tell you all about it but in case you haven’t guessed, it has to do with aliens. Nice aliens mind you, trying to find their way home.
What else would it be useful to know?
This is a funny, magical letter which is especially appealing to any child interested in space and creatures from other worlds. It’s brilliant for children with great imagination and an equally good choice for boys and girls.
Father Christmas’s pet owl, Alphabetucus, is with him on the sleigh in this letter, making it a nice choice for children who like birds.
Although Father Christmas writes this letter while dropping off the presents, it is carefully worded not to make it sound as though it has to be at “your house”. This is so that if your child is waking up away from home on Christmas Morning, for example at a friend or relative’s house, it would still be a suitable read. (All you need to do is leave it somewhere for your little one to find.)
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: 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.
