Starting your letter

Santa visits children all over the world so it’s super important to let him know who you are and where you live. Put your name and address in the top right-hand corner to help Santa find you on Christmas Eve and deliver your presents.

Next, start your letter with a jolly greeting. “Dear Santa,” or “Dear Father Christmas,” would work perfectly.

Before you ask for presents you should introduce yourself and tell Santa something nice about yourself, Santa loves hearing about all the good things you’ve done throughout the year. You could even ask Santa a question if you like.
