DescriptionBefore Christmas Letter: A Snowed In
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
“Snowed In” is a letter which tells the story of too much snow. So much snow in fact, that Father Christmas and his helpers can’t even get out of the house. He’d better find a way though, because the reindeer need feeding at the end of the garden, and Rudolph gets jolly grumpy without his breakfast.
Fortunately, one of the Christmas fairies remembers that there’s a rather unusual creature living deep in the caves under Christmas House – a dragon. The plan works well, the dragon crawls up into the main house, sticks his head out of the front door and melts the snow with his fiery breath.
What else would it be useful to know?
If you are writing a P.S. you might like to know that Father Christmas already reminds the reader to be fast asleep on Christmas Eve in the body of the letter, so you don’t need to add that.
Please also note that Father Christmas’ handwriting in this letter is slightly smaller and more spidery than in some of our other letters.
Father Christmas writes this letter with his usual sense of fun and a sprinkling of adventure. It carries you straight from your armchair to the magical North Pole and is popular with boys and girls of all ages.
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!
