DescriptionChristmas Morning Letter: The Giant and the Moths
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
“The Giant and the Moths” is a letter to open and read on Christmas Morning. It is a gentle letter in which Father Christmas relates his latest magical news.
In the first part of the letter we hear that recently, a giant from the nearby mountains came round to visit, but Father Christmas and his elves were unable to fit him in the house and had to entertain him in the garden. With no crockery big enough for him, he ended up having to drink his tea out of an old bathtub instead of a teacup.
The second part of the letter concerns the problems Father Christmas has had with a bunch of greedy magical moths, who succeeded in breaking into his storerooms and carrying away all his Christmas chocolate.
Everything ends well and Father Christmas finishes the letter by wishing your child “a lovely Christmas” before he rushes off to deliver the rest of the presents.
What else would it be useful to know?
Father Christmas finishes the letter by wishing your child “a lovely Christmas” so you won’t need to add that if you are composing your own P.S.
Also, please note that the writing in this letter is quite small. If you are looking for a letter with slightly larger writing, we would suggest different choice, such as “The Wrong Sack”.
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 “Thanks for the glass of milk and the yummy mince pie. Mmmmm!” 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.
